Greetings, everyone ! Hope you’ve had a chance to try out our showings and meet new people and members. However, the best is yet to come; our biggest event makes its long-anticipated return this week, along with plenty more fun :O
- A return to Paradigm City for main series and the first exec choice for the term…
- A social to discuss and discover the art of cosplay :)
- K A R A O K E ! ! ! ! !
- More important MCM details.
So, to begin with:
Tuesday (11/10) Main Series and Exec Choice [Tomas]
Catch us in MS.01 from 19:00 as per usual this Tuesday for the continuation of this term’s landslide-voted Main Series, The Big O! We’ll be joining Roger Smith and Dorothy for another week of negotiation-filled fun, as we watch Episodes 2-4 (https://myanimelist.net/anime/567/The_Big_O).
But wait! There’s more - Tomas’ exec choice! Every week, after main series, an exec will pick 3 shows which we’ll watch an opening each of, before voting. The show with the most votes gets its first 2 episodes shown!
The three shows for exec choice this week are in fact all mecha-themed, so why not pick your favourite from our very own president’s selection? The choices are:
- FLCL (https://myanimelist.net/anime/227/FLCL)
- Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team (https://myanimelist.net/anime/81/Mobile_Suit_Gundam__The_08th_MS_Team)
- Patlabor: The Mobile Police (https://myanimelist.net/anime/1288/Kidou_Keisatsu_Patlabor)
See you there, mecha soc!
Wednesday (12/10) Drop-in Cosplay Social
If you’re interested in cosplay, join us on Wednesday from 19:00 in MS.05 for our relaxed cosplay social! The goal of the night is to discuss cosplays in time for October’s MCM Comic-Con (more details below), but anyone and everyone is welcome, whether it’s your first time hearing about cosplay or your 500th time dressing up!
Here, you can trial your cosplays if you have one already and receive feedback from members, get help with finding cosplay materials or props online, get your measurements taken, and even learn a thing or two about wig maintenance, makeup application or dance routines. It promises to be a fun, chill experience - so do come along if interested!
Saturday (15/10) Karaoke Event
IT’S BACK! THE BIGGEST AND BEST ANISOC EVENT, KARAOKE!
If you haven’t been to our legendary karaoke events, they are not to be missed! Pop in on Saturday to the Avon Drama Studio in Westwood from 15:00 to sing your heart out all night long! From Japanese bops to club hits to obscure YouTube parodies, we’ve got it all on our system and there’s still time to map out your favourite tunes if they aren’t on our list!
