Warwick Anime & Manga Society – Week 8, Term 1 Announcement


Posted on 21/11/2022 by Ana

Good eveni- uh, morning(?) everyone! It’s the middle of crunch time and if I need a break, I’m sure you all do too - luckily, we have just the set of events to help you have the chill week you deserve :) With an exciting collab, and dramatic revelations in Main Series, we’ve got so much in store… let’s see!

Without further ado, this week’s events!

Tuesday (22/11) Main Series and Exec Choice [Hawari]

With all its philosophical references, explosions and a healthy dose of good ol’ Schwarzwald, it’s clear The Big O is ramping up the stakes as we near its last few episodes. This Tuesday in MS.02 from 19:00, we’ll be watching episodes 20, 21 and 22 of our Main Series - Roger’s past and present are definitely catching up to him, so don’t miss the incredible action that’s bound to be on-screen!

As for this week’s exec choice, its shows have been carefully selected by our Webmaster, Hawari. Long hailed as the trash-taste exec, Hawari has hand-picked this week’s 3 shows to play into his reputation… except, despite their terrible-sounding plot summaries, they’re apparently actually good. Don’t believe me? I had to hear the descriptions and I’m definitely intrigued. Here they are in all their glory:

Catch these, main series, and a whole load more on Tuesday - see you there!

Thursday (24/11) Film and TV Studies Collab!

Speaking of action, as part of this week’s collab event, we’ve got two futuristic picks to show you all! If you’ve missed hearing Tank!, or are in desperate need of someone’s house to stay in, you’ll adore the line-up that’s been selected by our friends at Film and TV Studies Society!

That’s right - we’ve got 3 episodes EACH of Cowboy Bebop (https://myanimelist.net/anime/1/Cowboy_Bebop) and Cyberpunk: Edgerunners (https://myanimelist.net/anime/42310/Cyberpunk__Edgerunners), all in M0.21 (in the FAB) from 19:00 on Thursday!

With such a great selection, we can’t wait to see everyone there; and make sure you show your appreciation and thanks to Filmsoc for what’s going to be a super collaboration :D

Saturday (26/11) All-Nighter Event

From 20:00 on Saturday 26/11 to 8:00 on Sunday 27/11, be ready for a night to remember - well, it’s filled with anime of course. In B2.04/05 on the Science Concourse, we’ll be watching everything from Gunbuster to Daicon in our all-nighter event!

The starter show to begin the event will be Zaregoto/Kubikiri Cycle (https://myanimelist.net/anime/33263/Kubikiri_Cycle__Aoiro_Savant_to_Zaregototsukai), which we’ll be watching 2 episodes of - we’ll then open up voting for members to choose and put forward their own shows. To get the best experience, please do bring any and all of your own shows that you’d like to put up on USB, external HDD or DVD/Blu-ray.

And that’s a wrap on this week - with plenty of showings and loads of fun, we hope you’ll join us for another 7 days of collabs, showings, and sleep-deprived messes. See you around! <3
