Monthly Newsletter: April Edition

It’s finally StuVac and dear god did I need it! I’ve gotten far too sidetracked following all the new things from this season – with a season 2 of Starmyu and season 6 of Natsume Yuujinchou I have plenty of things to keep me busy. I definitely won’t be catching up over the break though, not with all these assignments :| I hope you guys have more fun than me!

The first PV for the No Game No Life: Zero movie has surfaced! The visuals look amazing, as you’d expect, but that’s about all I can tell you given my horrendous Japanese reading ability (or lack thereof). I like the look of this new robot girl and the white-haired guy, they’re both pretty cute :)) Given the massive dragon, Tet at a cafe and the lack of Sora and Shiro I’m gonna guess this is a prequel, but anyone who actually follows this closely probably already knew that. With a cinematic release on July 15, we won’t be seeing anything of this movie for a good 6 months or more :/

Now, I’ve always been more of a Digimon fan than a Pokemon fan – the games are so much richer! I love the branched evolution lines and the more complicated experience point dynamics. So, I’m excited to keep seeing more details about the Digimon Story:Cyber Sleuth games. We’ve had new designs released for some new characters; Mishima Erika is a genius hacker that can connect her consciousness with the internet (I think?) and Fei is a violenty sadistic leader of a cyberterrorism group. It sounds a little dark, but I like it that way! Granted, I don’t remember seeing the prequel to this game around anywhere so this could be hard to find.

Here’s a fun little poll that’s come around: a poll has been taken asking for the favourite onsen/hot spring scenes in anime. The results were split by gender, just for a little bit of extra information. The top-rated show from the guys was Full Metal Panic, closely followed by KonoSuba and Hyouka. And of course, no surprises, Yuri!!! on Ice took the top spot from the girls. It’s actually caused something of a stir – there was some very hot competition from Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE!, a show that is basically one big onsen scene. It was a narrow victory, but ultimately Victor’s abs won out, with Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live taking the 3rd spot. Does any have strong opinions on this? I personally am a big fan of the Natsume Yuujinchou onsen scene, mostly because it gave us this dubious quote:

(for once, it’s not actually just gay undertones. It’s about a ghost lizard in the other guy’s skin. It makes sense in context I swear).

Now for our upcoming events!

AnimeSydney Camp!

WHEN: Saturday 15th July – Monday 17th
WHERE: Berry Sports and Recreation Centre
WHAT: As is tradition, AnimeSydney, all of the important anime societies at UTS, UNSW, USyd and Macquarie, are taking over the Berry Sports and Recreation Centre for a 3-day, 2-night adventure of non-stop fun~

We’ve scheduled it straight in the middle of the mid-year break, so there’s no reason to be scared about uni work or responsibilities! Berry is a way down south – about 3 hours on the train. Pack your Switches guys – there’s lots of time to fill! There are only limited spaces to fill, so get in super super fast to make sure you get yours!

The cost has not been finalised (yet), but it’ll be between $175-200. We know it sounds like a lot, but it’s not much to pay for 3 days accommodation and meals, complete with the best fun you will ever, ever have. Alcohol will be permitted, on a BYO basis, and there’s nowhere to stock up close to the rec centre, so you’ll have spin out whatever you can carry!

This here is the sign-up form: fill it out right now to make all your deepest, darkest, most taboo weeb dreams come true!

Check out the FB EVENT!
