Hello fellow pastimers,
With university exams coming up soon, we’re getting ready to begin our holiday screenings, so here’s the official announcement for what we’ll be playing!
On Wednesdays, we’ll be continuing My Love Story, Durarara and Mushishi while adding the comedy Yamada and the Seven Witches and supernatural drama Natsuyuki Rendezvous to replace Trigun and Terror in Resonance respectively.
On Fridays, for the most part we’ll be having double episodes of rom-com Nisekoi followed by psychological/mystery Death Parade and triple episodes of magic/action anime Tokyo Ravens, though I’ve slotted in the hilarious Carnival Phantasm for good measure due to it being a spin-off of the Fate series.
I’ve attached an image below for the schedule and I’ve tried to be as clear as possible, though I apologise for anything confusing – feel fee to contact me for clarification. Also, because of the weird structure of the holidays and our delays in August it turned out to be a bit of a Frankenstein’s monster… Anyway, we’ve got some good anime lined up for these holidays, so look forward to it!
As a last note, for the two weeks from the 2nd to the 15th of November the MCC is having wifi installed so for the screenings around then we’ll be having our screenings elsewhere. The location isn’t confirmed yet, though I’ll let you guys know as soon as it’s sorted out.
I said a couple of weeks ago we’d be holding an OGM soon, and this is the official announcement.
The OGM will be held on Friday 25th of September at 6pm, or 10 days from this post. We would like as many active members who are able to come as possible, as it will involve a couple of rather important matters. Screenings will still be on, and the meeting shouldn’t go for more than half an hour to an hour.
The main matters to be discussed are officially voting for a new president and our response to complaints about under-18s being subject to inappropriate material and discussion. If anyone has any other matters they would like to raise, this is also an opportunity to do so.
We hope to see you there.
Thanks everyone for your patience. I’m thrilled to announce that we are now
resuming events! Due to short notice we won’t be having the anime
screenings in the theatre tonight, though board gaming, video gaming and
socialising will recommence tonight and screenings from next week from
where we left off. We’ll also be holding an OGM (date TBA) to discuss some
matters that have come up, so keep your ears peeled for that.
Again, thanks again for your patience and we hope to see you around!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, screenings are cancelled until further notice. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Uni’s back, which means we’ve got special Bush Week events and new screenings coming up!
On Wednesday, we’ll have a special screening of the Trigun: Badlands Rumble movie commencing at 6:00pm in Mannin Clarke Theatre 3 followed by pizza at 7:30pm, with board games and a Weiss Schwarz workshop outside the theatre the whole time.
On Friday, we’ll be hosting our now traditional laser tag night! It kicks off at 5:15pm at Zone 3 Belconnen, and costs $10 per person.
And of course, starting next week we’ll begin our second semester screenings! You can check out our schedule at our screening page (http://anuags.org.au/screenings/)
So there’s plenty to look forward to! We look forward to seeing you at our events this semester!
In case you aren’t on our mailing list or Facebook page, Pizza Night is happening on Friday, the 24th of April.
Where, you ask? In the Manning Clark Centre foyer.
When, you ask? There will be an intermission between screenings at 7:00pm solely to worship the great Pizza God. (Screenings start at 5:00 pm)
If you can’t make that, then there’s another event for gamers and cosplayers alike to flourish and show off their beauty and grace: Battle of the Game, which is being held at Reload on the 3rd of May. (More info at https://www.facebook.com/events/641089579359279/)
It will be a heavenly event involving alcohol, cosplay, pizza, games and prizes!
See you around
For those who don’t study at ANU we have a teaching break for two weeks starting this week so the screenings schedule will be a bit different. In case you’ve fallen behind with the regular screenings, this would be a great opportunity to come along because we’re not showing the regular screenings!
The screenings during this time will be:
Wednesday 8th April:
6:00 – Anime Mirai 2014: Harmonie
6:25 – Tales of Zestiria Special
7:15 – Zetsumetsu Kigu Shoujo episode 1
7:40 – Hen Zemi OVA 1
Friday 10th April:
5:00 – Hamatora episodes 1-6
Wednesday 15th April:
6:00 – Anime Mirai 2014: Chronus
6:25 – Tokyo Marble Chocolate
7:15 – Zetsumetsu Kigu Shoujo episode 2
7:40 – Hen Zemi OVA 2
Friday 17th April:
5:00 – Hamatora episodes 7-12
Unfortunately, due to complications there has been a lack of pizza night (sorry, guys!). However, this will hopefully be sorted during the break and pizza will be the result (probably after mid-semester exam season).
Have a happy Easter, everyone!
In case you missed the ANUAGS 2015 annual general meeting- here is a list of the new friendly neighbourhood exec team:
President – Tiffany Harding
Treasurer – James Brims
Secretary – Zoe Mielens
Screenings Co-ordinator- James Reid
Social Officer- James Blue
Games Master- Shelly Keast
Web/Tech Officer- Nick Weher
Assistant Screenings Officer- Dominic Nelson
We would also like to thank James Ansell for hanging around as president for 2013 and 2014 and web officer for 2014 Callum Ford (you’re will both always welcome to hang around with us!). If anyone would like a copy of the minutes taken, they should be available to you below. We hope to continue engaging you with the wonderful world of anime and games. If there is anything you would like to suggest, genres, titles, events, don’t be shy (we’re friendly. Probably)! For those who haven’t been back for a while, we now have Mondays gaming on Wednesdays, but schedule-wise that’s all.
COMING SOON: Pizza Night (date: TBA)
Come along, meet and mingle with your fellow club members with the company of copious amounts of pizza!
See you around!
It’s perhaps a bit late in the semester to be saying this, but welcome to all the new members and welcome back to all the old ones.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out our weekly screenings I suggest you do so soon (this week perhaps). We’re not far in so it’ll still be easy to catch up. And if you don’t fancy a particular show you can chill outside and play some awesome games.
Also if you weren’t aware, our AGM is this Friday (6th March), at 6pm in Manning Clark Theatre 3. We’ll be hearing from the 2014 Exec about how last year went and then electing new people to run the club for 2015. So if you want to have a legit reason to ignore assessment and help run an award winning student society, you should consider running.
The agenda for the AGM and some information on the Exec positions are attached to this post. I think. With any luck we’ll be able to smash it out in 30 minutes (or less!) and get straight back into watching anime and playing games.

ANUAGS Exec Position Descriptions
University semester is about to start which means that is it business time for ANUAGS!
Wednesday Screenings: This year we’re having special O-week screenings supported by Madman and Hanabee! They will start at 6pm on Wednesday the 11th of Feb and be in the Manning Clark Centre. First up is the Eva 1.11 movie followed by Fate/stay night:Unlimited Bladeworks Episode 0. Gaming will also be happening at the same time.
Friday Laser Tag: Once again we’ll be doing O-week Laser Tag. It will be on Friday the 13th of February at Zone 3. It will start at 6:15pm but a bunch of people will meet up earlier at 5pm in the Belconnen Westfield food court. It will be $10 per person for three games. Places are limited so it is first-come-first-served, with priority going to a) ANUAGS members and b) people who pre-pay for a spot at a screenings meet beforehand
Semester 1 Screenings
Semester 1 Screenings will start the week after O-week, i.e Wednesday the 18th and Friday the 20th. Check out the links for the schedule or go to the screenings page on our website for all the details about the shows.
Thanks to Madman, Hanabee and Siren Visual for supporting our screenings by providing us with some awesome shows!
2015 Memberships and AGM
As the new uni year starts, it’s time to renew your membership. It costs $10 for the year (about 5c per activity/night XD) and can be paid at any of our screening nights.
Also we’ll be holding our AGM on Friday the 6th of March. There will be a break in the Friday screenings at 6pm so we can hold it in the lecture theatre. It’s a good chance for members to have their say on what the Society is doing right and what it is doing wrong. In addition we’ve got to elect an Executive Committee for 2015 several of the current Executive members will be moving on to other things. So if you think you’d like to have a shot at running ANU’s best student club (we even have an award to prove that!) you should consider running for a position. A list of current positions and their tasks can be found here
Hope to see you all around!
