+ Events :: FREE SCREENING: Memories - 7th October - 7.101

Thanks to our friends at Siren Visual, POWA Anime Club is proud to present a FREE screening on Friday 7th October. This themed screening will focus on Sci-Fi, which is why Memories is the flavour of the week. With amazing storylines, hauntingly good music and stunning visuals, Memories is an experience unlike any other.

From Katsuhiro Otomo, acclaimed creator of Akira, comes an animated masterpiece: three short stories all put together as a series of Memories. Part one is titled Magnetic Rose, a science fiction tale that tells a chilling story of love, loss, and the unwillingness to forget. Part two is titled Stink Bomb, a tongue-in-cheek story of a chemical researcher who is just looking for a way to get rid of his cold... so why is everybody around him dying? Part three is titled Cannon Fodder and is an introspective tale about modern wars and simply following orders.

This screening will be at our usual screening room: ECU Joondalup Building 7, Room 101. The doors will open at 6:00pm, followed by a few short announcements and time for people to find a seat. The film will commence at 6:30pm, and will finish at 8:30pm.

This is a FREE screening.
Food and drinks will be available for purchase, as will discounted memberships.

MEMORIES IS RATED PG FOR ADULT THEMES AND LOW LEVEL COARSE LANGUAGE.

+ Screenings :: POWA Screening 25th of September - 7.101

When an anime leaves a lineup, it always makes us sad pandas. Sad pandas indeed. This week, that anime is GATE. The antics of the Three Waifus and their supporting cast of actual characters is leaving us, and it's crunch time for suggestions!

Our new Drama slot, Akagi, continues: Akagi was an aircraft carrier built for the Imperial Japanese Navy, named after Mount Akagi in present-day Gunma Prefecture. Though she was laid down as an Amagi-class battlecruiser, Akagi was conve--oh, the anime. Right.

"Nangou is a compulsive gambler who has accumulated a huge debt. In a last ditch attempt to clear his record, he decides to wager his life on a game of mahjong with the mafia. Unfortunately, as the game progresses, Nangou only moves closer to death. When all hope seems lost, the game parlor is suddenly intruded upon by Shigeru Akagi, a young boy on the run from the police. Desperate to turn the game around, Nangou hands the game over to Akagi after teaching him a few of the rules. The mafia can only smirk as Akagi sits down to play. However, they soon come to learn that Akagi is a natural-born gambler..."

For those of you who do not have an active membership, it only costs $10 for ECU students, $12 for Affiliated members, and $15 for non-ECU students. Purchasing a membership gives you discounts with some of our sponsors, voting rights, discounts to some events, access to our exclusive library and more!

We welcome everyone to ask questions, raise potential concerns, give us feedback about what you like, or things you would like to see the club head towards. This is an open forum, so even if you are popping in to say hello, have joined us recently or have been a long standing member, it is the perfect opportunity to let your voice be heard.

If you're interested in nominating, then please take a moment to read the following -

COMMITTEE NOMINATIONS
Persons who would like to nominate themselves for the executive committee are asked to do the following:

1. Advise you wish to nominate yourself by alerting any committee member or emailing powaclub@gmail.com. For members on already the committee, please let me know.

2. You are asked to talk a little about yourself. We recommend you speak about why you would be a good candidate. For example: previous experiences, your interests, what you would bring to the club by being on the committee, potential goals, etc.

3. Please mention which role you would like to be in. You may specifically be after President or Treasurer, or you may have no preference at all. It is important to note what you would like to do, even if it is anything.

4. Question and Answer Time for Attendees

Most importantly, if you would like to NOMINATE or VOTE you need a CURRENT POWA membership - so if you need to re-new to do either of these two things and need to re-new, you'll be able to do so before the beginning of the meeting. If you're also unable to attend but would still like to nominate, please send us an email with your details as well as the positions you would like to nominate for AND a brief summary of what we've asked for above from attendees.

Well, POWA Rangers, we have a new mission for you: Make your way to the forest where you will find the suggestion thread! Forest is code word for forum, is state secret. GATE is ending in a couple of weeks as well, and we need your suggestions for its replacement as well!

In this forest, you will find what has been denied to you for so many years: A voice. It might not have been years. Probably weeks. We've lost track. School Rumble is up for votin, as is Minna Kawaisou! Want these to stay, or should they go? Come down and use this newfound power! If you're a member, that is. If you're not, God help you. But God will help you if you buy a membership at the door or on our website!

We have a big event coming soon, too! It's one of those AGM thingies! Annual General Meetings are when an organisation discusses its future, various happenings, and there's usually committee voting for members too! Stay tuned for more info!
