Retro Movie/OVA Month on POWA’s Discord

Following on from our month-long celebrations of Gundam and Evangelion, POWA is trying something different for the month of October. We’ll be looking at 4 very different movies and OVAs from the mysterious world of the pre-2000s, watching along on our Discord server.

As we’re reaching for a combination of well-regarded classics and lesser-known picks, we’ll be watching from a variety of services, using Metastream to sync up for everyone. As always, it’ll be easy to sync up your own copies of the movies too.

Every watchalong will start at 7pm:

  • Ghost in the Shell (1995) on Amazon Prime Video – Saturday, October 2nd
    • A cyborg policewoman and her partner hunt a mysterious and powerful hacker called the Puppet Master.
  • New Dominion: Tank Police (1993) on HiDive – Saturday, October 9th (Ep 1-3) & Saturday, October 23rd (Ep 4-6)
    • The year is 2016. The place is New Port City. The Tank Police are waging a desperate war on crime, and their tactics are highly questionable.
  • Ruin Explorers (1995) on HiDive – Saturday, October 16th (Ep 1-4)
    • Fam and Ihrie must team up with a rag-tag team of “Ruin Explorers” to find the Ultimate Power and save the world from destruction.
  • Robot Carnival (1987) on Crunchyroll – Saturday, October 30th
    • A collection of short stories, made by different animators with “robot” as the working title.

We hope to see you there!
