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!

Fate/Grand Order Paladin Agateram POWA Movie Outing

Location: Event Cinemas Innaloo
Date: August 27th
Time: 4:15PM

POWA is going to the cinemas to see the next piece of the Fate Grand Order anime puzzle, the second in a pair of movies tackling the Camelot Singularity from the hit mobile game! As you may remember, we saw the first movie in April.
The movie starts at 4:15pm, 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.

Movie Synopsis:
“Jerusalem, 1273 A.D. Here, both the wandering knight, Bedivere, and Chaldea’s own expedition find the Sixth Singularity. The residents of this desolate land have been driven from their homes as three opposing powers battle for control of the land.
Bedivere and company seek the help of the Mountain People to rise up against the Lion King and the Knights of the Round Table and combat their slaughter of innocents. After a deadly struggle and the loss of a dear friend, the group approaches Ozymandias, the Sun King, whose incredible power could help them turn the tables. In the halls of this great pharaoh, they desperately seek an alliance. Ozymandias, however, reveals the Lion King’s plans and refuses to assist in foiling them, instead wishing to protect his own people.”
