ANUAGS News, Activities and Announcements

Hey everyone!

The year is well and truly started now and here’s an update on everything that ANUAGS is doing.


Holiday Screenings are into their final fortnight and will wrap up on the 7th of January. We will then have special O week Screenings on the 12th and 14th of February. After that we will commence our Semester 1 Screenings, which will be announced soon!

Madoka Magica Movie- 1/2/2014
Technically not ANUAGS but this Saturday GAMMA.CON, Madman and Dendy are teaming up to present the Australian premiere of the third Madoka Movie at the Dendy in the Canberra Centre. Tickets can be bought at the Dendy website. The movie is at 2:30 but the fun starts at 2pm (if not earlier)! GAMMA.CON will be hosting a Cosplay Competition and running a Scavenger Hunt- Save the Canbera Centre so you should go along well before 2:30pm and check it all out.

Laser Tag- 21/2/2014

Our first event for the year (and last event for the 2013 ANUAGS Exec) will be Laser Tag. It will be at 6:40pm on Friday the 21st of February at Zone 3 Laser Tag in Belconnen. It will be $10 per person for three games and will be a strictly first come, first serve basis. No Screenings on that night and we will be meeting up at 5:30pm in the Westfield Belconnen Foodcourt beforehand to eat if people are interested. More information can be found on the ANUAGS Laser Tag Facebook event.

ANUAGS AGM- 28/2/2014

In equally exciting news, our Annual General Meeting is going to held the week after Laser Tag on Friday the 28th of February. The Executive will give their reports, the budget will be presented, business will be addressed and then the 2014 Executive will be elected. More information will be given out closer to the date but you can see the seven different positions on our FAQ page. The names of the positions should give a rough indication as to what each role does. Also our Constitution can be found for those who want to read it.

If you like what the club is doing and want it to continue you should consider running for a role to make that happen. If you hate what the club is doing and want to change it you should run for a role to make that happen. If you don’t care but want me to stop writing excessively long posts with too many links then you should run for a position and make that happen.

2014 Memberships- ??/2/2014

Finally, memberships fees for 2014 are due in February. It will be once again be $10 for the year (which is pretty good value since we do over 10 hours of stuff every week). Membership will reset during O-week on the 12th, but once the 2014 Membership cards arrive in the mail we will start accepting fees.

Wow that’s a lot of stuff happening. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us or ask any of the Exec!

Ja mata,


Madoka Magica Screening at Dendy!!

Just a quick one- for those of you who haven’t already heard, Madman and Dendy have partnered up to play the third Madoka Movie on Saturday Feb 1st at 2:30pm. It’s a new story (the first two movies were retellings of the series) and is going to be awesome!!

Plus they’ve also partnered with GAMMA.CON who will be running a Cosplay Competition starting at around 2pm at Dendy. And I hear there might even be a few extra events run on the day.

So get your tickets, ready your Cosplay and be there for the first big Canberra anime event of the year!! (Aside from our Screenings of course XD)


Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!!

Quick reminders/announcements:

– Screenings resume tonight after a short break
– Mondaitchi has finished so Friday is being rearranged slightly. Kuroko no Basuke is being bumped from 3rd to 1st and we’re ending on double episodes of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Updated screening schedule is on the website
– We’ve finally got around to completing our web migration. Although you’ve probably figured that out if you’re looking at this post. So make sure to update your browser bookmarks/homepages XD. And let us know if anything has broken in the process of the migration.
