Warwick Anime and Manga Society – Week 2, Term 1 Newsletter
Hello @everyone,

Hope you all have had a fab start to Term 1 and are (re)settling in well! A big thanks to everyone who came to our events over the past week - the response has been smashing and its been great to see many people turn up! You can find next weeks events below, as well as info on Comic Con and more!

Main Series Showing
Following on from last week, our main series showing will continue every Tuesday at 19:00 in MS01!. I forgot to mention this in last week’s announcement, but if you’d like to arrive early and chat before the showing, each week we’ll be holding a pre-showing social upstairs in MS05 from 18:00 - feel free to pop in!

After an intense vote last week, democracy has dictated that our main series for this term will be Kaiji Ultimate Survivor (sorry Gurren bros :sob: )
This week we’ll be watching episodes 2-4. If you missed last week’s showing, we’d recommend you catch up and watch episode 1 in preparation, although its not required.

Exec Choice
Exec choices will return this week! For those who’re unaware, from this week onwards, after the main series showing (approx. 20:30) we’ll show two episodes of an entirely different anime, voted and chosen by you from a list curated by a rotating member of the exec. This week’s exec choice has been selected by our one and only President, Caius! You’ll be able to vote for as many as you like from the following:

Bloom Into You/Yagate Kimi ni Naru
Honey and Clover/Hachimitsu to Clover
Wandering Son/Hourou Musuko

Drop-in Manga/LN Social

This Wednesday from 18:00 -22:00, we’ll be holding our second Manga/LN drop-in social of the term in MS05; Similar to our Welcome Week event, come by and talk about any and all things manga and light novel related, as well as read from our extensive library collection!

Put the date in your calendar – this Saturday from 15:00 – 22:00 we’ll be holding our first Karaoke of the term in Westwood room WA0.24! Pretty self-explanatory event, its where we blast and ‘sing’ to anime, Japanese and sometimes Western songs
If you’re unsure how to get there, you can find the location on the interactive map here: http://campus-cms.warwick.ac.uk/share/66241a0607872f7f098d6afeffa46378

As promised, we’re going to MCM Comic Con in London on Saturday 23rd October! As mentioned last week, if you want to join us, please purchase the ticket from here if you haven’t already: https://www.showclix.com/event/mcm-comic-con-london-2021/listing. Please note as Saturday general tickets are already sold-out, you will have to buy the slightly more expensive Saturday priority tickets instead.

Finally, over recent weeks we’ve seen a degree of interest in forming a 5 a side football team and becoming the next Manchester United Stoke City. If you’re seriously interested in the idea, send me a DM and if we get enough responses we should be able to set something up. There may be some costs involved which we’d split equally as a team (TBC) so bear that in mind if wanting to apply. Hope everyone has a great week ahead :anichan_thumbs_up:
