2014 Anime in Review

December 31, 2014, by , posted in Review

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to all our members! What a great year has it been, so much stuff was accomplished, so many new anime were watched (right?). If by chance you didn’t have time to attend our screenings where we watched a bunch of shows form the past few seasons, and were to busy with exams, then here is a video reviewing the anime you might have missed in the passed year.

Gigguk is a great anime reviewer and comes out with these anime in review posts yearly. Check him out:

Screenings in 2014

November 25, 2014, by , posted in Blog

Yush! This post is long overdue~

Yup, it’s me Frank– your friendly neighbourhood screenings director <3 and this is my post about this year’s screenings (as well as plans for next year!).

First of all – thank you to all of you that came to screenings this year! It was wonderful seeing you, even if it was only for a single screening~ I’ve met some wonderful people and even made some new friends from those that have turned up to screenings. If people didn’t come to screenings, well, I’d probably be a very sad screenings director~ So I’m glad lots of you did (even during assessment periods!). What I’ve personally enjoyed the most about my first year as screenings director is when I show an anime and someone says “Oh hey, that looks good! I’ll probably watch it” and I feel all warm and fuzzy inside~ <3

But now down to the facts – How did I run screenings this year? Well, for those that didn’t come – this is how it went:

Monday (First semester)/Tuesday (Second Semester) screening – The original plan was to bring in a bunch of anime and have the people there decide, but then everyone was really non-committal about choices – so it was changed to putting a WHOLE LOT of anime into a playlist and setting it to shuffle~ Later on when the new season started, we watched the most recent episode of a new season of anime (First Stardust Crusaders, Zankyou no Terror, then Unlimited Blade Works), then let the playlist shuffle from there.

Friday screenings – Friday screenings were pretty constant. At (almost) every screening I passed around a suggestions sheet which people could fill in. Then I would base Friday’s screening off of the suggestions! Obviously I was limited to what anime I had available, and sometimes people would suggest things that I didn’t feel comfortable screening – so not everything suggested was shown. Oh, and please, no more Boku no Pico suggestions. They’re not funny anymore. :P

Above all, I tried my best to try and show a whole lot of stuff so that there was something there for everybody. From Mecha to Yaoi, from action to romance, from old to new, from Shaft to moe. Not saying that my own personal tastes didn’t affect screenings – I’m sure the amount of Gintama shown made that obvious! :D

Anime 2014

Either way, as of writing I’m planning to run 2015’s screenings in a similar way – Monday screenings having the same ‘follow a new anime, do the shuffle’, and Friday being based off of your suggestions. If anything is to change, it’ll probably be that I’ll bring food in every now and again (though if we leave a mess in any of the rooms, that’ll stop very very quickly). But hey, I’m not a screenings director for myself, but for club members, so if you have any suggestions feel free to pass them my way and I’ll take them into consideration!

Whelp, first post on the new website complete, probably of many more to come~ I’ll see you all next year! じゃぁね~
