Hello Everyone,

 

Covid-19 Information

Importantly all information concerning changes will be available here.

 

Main Series (Tuesday Showings)

The main series is our term-long series which we watch at a rate of 3 episodes a week on Tuesdays for the entirety of term. This week we will be selecting it from one of four options that we, the exec, have curated. On Tuesday at 7pm we will be showing the first episode of our four candidates which will then be followed by a vote for the main series choice. Feel free to vote for as many as you like, but the link to vote will only be available on stream during our showing, so do make sure to come along for a chance to have your say. Our main series candidates are, shown in this order:

  • Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit (MAL)
  • Princess Tutu (MAL)
  • Samurai Champloo (MAL)
  • Shirobako (MAL)

 

To join our streams go here

Click the play button to start the stream. If the stream fails to play, try refreshing the page and clicking the play button again.

There have been issues with stream that arise from the use of VPNs; if you have one enabled, try disabling it and refreshing the page. If you have any other issues, please message a member of the exec for assistance, best done via Discord or Facebook.

 

Exec Choice (Thursday Showings)

The exec choice is an event running every Thursday in which members of our exec take turns to suggest 3 possible shows for us to watch, and will change every week. On Thursday at 7pm we will then begin the stream (see above for instructions on how to join) by watching each of the openings and hearing a short explanation of each of the shows, after which a link will be shown on stream allowing you to vote on which of the shows we will watch (again feel free to vote for multiple if you desire). The two with the most votes will then have their first two episodes shown. This week our options are:

 

Film Night (Saturday Showing)

We will also occasionally (sorry no long term plan yet) have showings on Saturday nights. This weekend, on Saturday at 7pm we will be streaming (see above for instructions on how to join) the classic sci-fi thriller Paprika (MAL)We also plan on running some sort of social games after the film, such as skribblio or Jackbox games amongst other things, so if you join us in our Discord (linked below), you should find plenty of people willing to discuss and have fun.

 

Other Events
