Sword Art Online: Progressive – Scherzo of Deep Night – Outing

Location: Event Cinemas Innaloo
Date: Saturday February 4
Time: 7:00PM
9:00PM

POWA is off to the movies once again in quick succession to watch the second film of Sword Art Online Progressive: Scherzo of Deep Night. If you haven’t seen the the first movie, Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night you can do so on Crunchyroll!

POWA has voted to go see it on Saturday, February 4th 7PM at Event Cinemas Innaloo, in the original Japanese. The movie starts at 7PM, but as we cannot book ahead, we cannot guarantee seats in the cinema. Ensure that you arrive early enough to purchase your tickets at the counter so you don’t end up disappointed.

The movie is described as such:
The world’s first VRMMORPG (Sword Art Online) became a game of death. Over a month has passed since 10,000 users were trapped inside the game world. Asuna, who cleared the first floor of the floating iron castle of Aincrad, joined up with Kirito and continued her journey to reach the top floor. With the support of female Information Broker Argo, clearing the floors seemed to be progressing smoothly, but… Conflict erupts between two major guilds who should be working together – the top player groups ALS (the Aincrad Liberation Squad) and DKB (the Dragon Knights Brigade). And meanwhile, behind the scenes exists a mysterious figure pulling the strings…. In a dangerous battle of death, there is an assault that differs from the threat, and it will involve Asuna and Kirito…!

We hope to see you there!

POWA Winter 2023 Seasonal Preview, 29th January 2023

Location: Joondalup Library, Upstairs Meeting Room

POWA’s back with another look at anime currently airing in Japan!

Six brand new shows from the winter 2023 anime season. The perfect time to check out POWA while seeing the highs and lows of the season. What will you be watching?

We’ll continue the fun on our Discord server in a post-screening after-party, with watchalongs for shows that we couldn’t get to in the screening. Check out POWA’s Discord here.

On our Discord, we’ll be holding our first quarterly General Meeting of 2023 the day before this screening. Any members interested in the running of the club and future plans and events should join the Discord chat room we set up for Saturday, 28th January at 3PM. Please contact a Committee member if you would like to know more about this process.

Our screening this past Sunday, January 22nd 2023 received a lower than expected turnout, so we did not watch our regularly scheduled lineup. So if you missed out on this screening, you did not actually miss out on any shows! While this coming week is our Seasonal Preview for Winter 2023, the week after will resume with the schedule initially proposed for January 22nd 2023. Event link here
