Evangelion Month on POWA’s Discord

As a follow up to our successful Discord “Gundam Month” (the final part – Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway, happening tonight at 7pm!) POWA is doing another Discord watchalong series.

To celebrate the long-awaited worldwide release of the final chapter in the Rebuild of Evangelion saga on Amazon Prime Video – EVANGELION: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time, we’ll be watching the entire Rebuild series with Amazon Prime’s “Watch Party” feature. If you have your own copy, we’ll make it easy enough to sync them up too. Read more on the “Watch Party” feature here.

These films are a modern retelling of the original television series, taking the story to some very different places. As such they can be enjoyed by both fans and newcomers of the franchise:

  • EVANGELION: 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone (2007) – Saturday, August 14th, 7pm
  • EVANGELION: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance (2009) – Saturday, August 21st, 7pm
  • EVANGELION: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo (2012) – Saturday, August 28th, 7pm
  • EVANGELION: 3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time (2021) – Saturday, September 4th, 7pm

We hope to see you there!

Gundam Month on POWA’s Discord

In celebration of the new film – Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway releasing today on Netflix, POWA is planning to celebrate the legendary mech series with over a month of watchalongs on our Discord server!
Similar to last year’s Ghibli-thon we will be watching the Gundam films available on Netflix via the stream syncing service Metastream, although it’s easy enough to sync up your own copies of the movies too.

These films are a great introduction to the Gundam universe, and will chronologically lead into Hathaway, which we will be watching at the end:

  • Mobile Suit Gundam I (1981) – Saturday, July 10th, 7pm
  • Mobile Suit Gundam II: Soldiers of Sorrow (1981) – Saturday, July 17th, 7pm
  • Mobile Suit Gundam III: Encounters in Space (1982) – Saturday, July 24th, 7pm
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack (1988) – Saturday, July 31st, 7pm
  • Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway (2021) – Saturday, August 7th, 7pm

We hope to see you there!

POWA Drawing Day, 15th May 2021

While POWA is coming back in a physical space on the 30th of May (see here for more details) we’ll be sticking to Discord events for two more weeks. Be sure to join the server.

This week we’ll be doing a pair of drawing events for people to let out their artistic side! We will be using Aggie.io to sketch together and create a collaborative collage. All levels of talent are welcome – we’re just hoping to have some fun.
Afterwards, we’ll be playing some of the drawing party game Drawful 2, which challenges players to draw ridiculous prompts. Drawful 2 doesn’t require anyone but the host to own the game, with everyone else playing via browser or mobile phones.

This Week’s Schedule:
4:00PM – Collaborative Drawing on Aggie.io
6:00PM – Break
6:30PM – Drawful 2 Game Night

The Facebook event can be found here.

We hope to see you there!
