News and Events Banner

 

Madman is about to make the cinematic release of the first feature film from Studio Ponoc (a studio founded from a collection of old Studio Ghibli animators and some other great talent), Mary and the Witch’s Flower. Reviews from other countries have been great, so it’s exciting to see it released here and even more exciting to announce we have 10 double passes to give away, courtesy of Madman! How do you enter the giveaway, do you ask? Keep an eye on our Facebook page, and you’ll see a post asking for you to tell us what your Anime of the Year was for 2017 (counting movies, since there were so many big ones), and why (brevity is key here – keep it to about 100 words max). The ten best get the passes~ Simple, ne?

We have no events to share for this period, being the holiday season, but keep your ear to ground for some upcoming affairs (including some big changes to our camp lineup for the year but more on that later~)

It’s been a big month in movie releases, with No Game No Life Zero and Heaven’s Feel I: presage flower pretty much popping out back to back. With Madman pretty much licencing every major anime film release, we’ve started negotations with the newly opened Palace Cinemas Central Park to potentially arrange some neato deals for y’all. They’re pretty open to suggestions so I’d like to hear your ideas (since you guys will be the ones using these deals anyway)! Let me what you’d like to see in a relationship with a cinema either over Facebook or via email at publicity@animeuts.activateuts.com.au~

Now, onto our events! I told you this would be short.

Monthly Newsletter – August Edition

August 26, 2017, by , posted in Blog

Hey team! I hope your semester is going better than mine. This is just gonna be a short newsletter from me because I’m low key dying I have like 17 assignments due and I’m working like 30 hours a week on top of 24 hours of classes and it’s just a little -_- rn~ but I’ll be back in force next month with some good shit for y’all I promise!

Okay so Dominos has done what is officially the oddest combo of all time – for $49.95 you get 3 pizzas, a drink, garlic bread and a download code for Final Fantasy XIV. I don’t really understand why, seeing as pretty much anyone who’d want the game has it by now, but I didn’t so of course my useless self has caved and taken part in this bizarre promotion. It’s objectively a good deal, just… interesting.

We’ve finally hit peak release time for the opening and ending themes for this season’s anime and there is some good shit out there right now. Some of the big players have come back again – Kalafina has released Hyakka Ryouran for Katsugeki: Touken RanbuLiSA’s Datte Atashi no Hero unsurprisingly belongs with Boku no Hero Academia Season 2, GARNiDELiA and EGOIST have double-teamed Fate/Apocrypha with their songs Eiyuu  Unmei no Uta and Désir as the opening and ending respectively. Mizuki Nana released two singles on the same day (again the crazy woman), featuring TESTAMENT, the opening to the latest instalment of Senki Zesshou Symphogearand Destiny’s Prelude, the opening song to the latest instalment in the Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha franchise (of course, both singles charted in the top 5 – TESTAMENT at number 2 and Destiny’s Prelude at number 3). Okamoto Nobuhiko put forward an excellent entry for a comparative amateur with Sacrament, the ending theme for Vatican Kiseki Chousakanbut mostly excitingly ryo from supercell has teamed up with promising rookie Tia to produce Deal with the Devila dirty jazz number used as the opening for KakeguruiAs far as openings are concerned, this one is pretty much a sure shot for best of the year in my book – dynamic and flexible, vocals with strong technique and character both, and always exciting to hear, it’s everything a great song should be.

ALSO! If you didn’t get to see us at SMASH, or were too broke by the time you got there, you can order a merchandise item online and we’ll deliver it to you on a Friday at Fun and Games! (It runs from 2-8pm don’t try and tell me you can’t make it.) Make sure you read the form before you fill it out!

Monthly Newsletter – July Edition

July 25, 2017, by , posted in Blog

Oh no, the semester break is nearly over~ why did I do nothing I said I would do? I haven’t even watched the all the anime I wanted to T_T Well, anyway, at least I have fun subjects this semester, so I mightn’t hate my life the whole time. Just most of it. With that said, let’s get to the fun stuff!

A big thank you to everyone that came on camp~ we’re slowly working through all the photos and they’ll be up super soon~

Keijo is real now (but only in Portugal). I have nothing more I can say on this topic. It’s pretty dorky, but I mean hey. Keijo was dorky.

Legendary raids are finally a thing in Pokémon Go! A team of as many as 20 people can gather at a gym location and challenge either a Lugia or an Articuno. But, in true Pokémon Go style, it’s buggy af. Aside from some raid locations that have poor network access, incredibly overpowered Lugias for casual players, flawed catch rate balancing and difficulties functioning in rural areas with low population density, there’s just plumb not enough people playing any more to manage raids this way anymore. To cap it off, Lugias and Articunos have a bad habit of running away. But some of this is actually an interesting question – a lot of people thought Pokémon Go would just be Pokémon on a smartphone, but it’s really not. I mean, there’s only meant to be one Lugia and one Articuno in all the world, according to lore, so it makes sense they should be very difficult to catch. But that’s never how Pokémon has been before. It’s been independent, and catching legendaries was a grilling war of attrition against the RNG, rather than a genuinely tough battle. Is anyone still playing, or participated in a raid? Did you hate it?

Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII has made another entry in her modelling career – first Louis Vuitton, and now Nissan. China has produced a series of ads involving various people putting on VR headsets and substituting the driver with either Lightning or Snow Villiers. Why exactly? Why not? If it sells cars, it works.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for the Madman CELEBRATE STUDIO GHIBLI event – we’re looking at negotiating some discounts for all you lovely people~

And now for our events!

If you’re headed to SMASH this year, make sure you swing by our table! We’ll let you know more once we know more~
