Hello again everyone!

I did promise to be more on the ball with announcements so here you go:

The society will be holding it's final screening for the year and as is tradition it will be Halloween themed. There will also be food and drinks provided at the screening.



Another
When K?ichi Sasakibara transfers to his new school, he can sense something frightening in the atmosphere of his new class, a secret none of them will talk about. At the center is the beautiful girl Mei Misaki. K?ichi is immediately drawn to her mysterious aura, but then he begins to realize that no one else in the class is aware of her presence.
  


Deadman Wonderland
Ganta Igarashi has been convicted of a crime that he hasn't committed, and sent to a new, privately owned and operated prison, where the inmates are the main attraction in a modern day twist to the gladiatorial coliseums of ancient times. Throw in a healthy dose of weird little girl, some new-found super powers, and a little conspiracy theory, and you have Deadman Wonderland.



Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni
On one hot summer day in 1983, a transfer student named Maebara Keiichi comes to a peaceful rural village in Hinamizawa. There, he befriends his classmates Rena, Mion, Rika, and Satoko. Accepted as a full-fledged member of the "club," Keiichi and the gang plays all sorts of activities ranging from card and board games to hide-and-seek. But just as Keiichi was beginning to be assimilated in simple rural life, he stumbles upon the dark history of Hinamizawa. As Keiichi dives deeper into the mystery, he finds that his new found friends may not be all what they claim to be.
  


Blood +
Otonashi Saya is a high-school girl who lives a peaceful life with her family. The only problem is; she has no recollections of her life beyond that of the past year. However, her happy life will be destroyed by an event that will lead her to her destined fate as she becomes involved in a war between immortal shape shifting monsters and the organisation known as the "Red Shield", formed to track down and exterminate them.


  
Soul Eater
Set in the Shinigami technical school for weapon meisters, the series revolves around 3 groups of each a weapon meister and a human weapon. Trying to make the latter a "Death Scythe" and thus fit for use by the Shinigami, they must collect the souls of 99 evil humans and 1 witch.


  
Claymore
In a world rife with deadly creatures called "youma", a young silver eyed woman, Clare, works on behalf of an organisation that trains female youma halfbreeds into warriors with the ability to destroy these creatures. Considered a rogue for picking up a stray child & almost losing herself to her youma side by "Awakening", she is constantly assigned rather dangerous missions...


 
Danganronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei
A group of 15 elite high school students are gathered at a very special, high class high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you'll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The school is presided over by a bear called Monokuma, and he explains to them that their graduation hinges around committing a murder. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it. If the other classmates discover the identity of the killer, the killer is the only one executed. However, if they fail to catch the killer, only the killer graduates and the others are annihilated. Which of the 15 will survive the bloodbath to come?
 

xx New Committee's Choice Screening - 4 August 2013
October 03, 2013, 10:23:18 pm by IwantsURsoul
Hello fellow Genshiken Forum members,
 
We apologise for our rather extended break in society activities but UCON took quite alot out of both the old and new committee.
 
We will be having a screening on Friday October 4th with the theme of "Committee's Choice". As this is the first screening of the new committee as is tradition, we will be screening some anime chosen by our new anime director.
 
This will be at 5PM, in LS3B, our usual venue.
 
The shows decided by our anime director are:
 
1. Bakemonogatari
Genres: Drama/Romance/Supernatural
Summary: Although there are still traces of the brief period he became a vampire, third-year high school student Koyomi Araragi is human again. He happens upon others with their own supernatural problems and finds that he can empathize. Koyomi becomes involved in their lives, seeking to help them and occasionally asking for advice from Meme Oshino, the homeless man who helped him become human again.
 

 
2. Toradora
Genres: Romance/Slice of Life
Summary: Despite Ryuji Takasu's gentle personality, his eyes make him look like an intimidating delinquent. Class rearrangements on his second high school year put him together with his best friend, Yusaku Kitamura, and his hidden crush, Minori Kushieda. Along with these two comes Kushieda's best friend, Taiga Aisaka. Her delicate appearance contrasts with her brutal personality. Secretly in love with Kitamura, Taiga agrees to help Ryuji with his love interest as long as he helps her get closer to hers.
 

 
 
3. Heroic Age 
Genres: Sci-Fi/Action
Summary: Answering the call of the “Gold Race”, all the sentient races launch into space. The human race is the last to launch,and are thus known as the “Iron Race”. Much time has passed since then, and humanity is threatened with extinction at the hands of the more dominant “Silver Race”. In order to save her people, Princess Deianeira sets out on a journey to a galaxy far away, following the prophecies of the Gold Race handed down by the royal family. Then, she meets a boy named Age. Their encounter will change the fate of the universe...
 



I would also like to extend a quick apology to you all, we realise this in INCREDIBLY last minute but we are still working out some of the kinks with the new committee, you have my word that it shall not happen again.
