Don't forget: due to the POWA LAN Party taking place this weekend, there will be NO SCREENING this week. We will be back to our regular screening schedule from Sunday 31st July.
We've still got a few PC slots left, and plenty of non-PC spots available. We've also added some additional non-PC activities such as tabletop games, consoles, AnimeLab screenings all night long, and even regular Pokemon Go walks through the campus (a more detailed list can be found here). For more information, check out the Facebook Event Page or the POWA LAN information page!
As we have the POWA LAN on this weekend, we will not be having our usual Sunday screening. Business will be as usual from Sunday 31st July, so be sure to join us then.
For those of you who are joining us for the LAN, don't forget to hash your files in advance if you are using DC++ as it takes quite a long time to do.
We've also expanded our list of activities for those of you without PCs. We will have:
Tabletop Gaming (card and boardgames)
Portable Gaming (we recommend you bring your 3DS for StreetPass)
AnimeLab screenings all night long
Pokèmon Go walks throughout the campus
Access to our Manga Library
Non-PC orientated competitions/tournaments
... and more!
As for our list of PC competition games:
Unreal Tournament 2004
... and more!
Our first activity begins at 6pm, and the pizza run will be for 8pm. Our Street Fighter IV tournament will take place at 10pm.
For more information, check out the Facebook Event Page or the POWA LAN information page!
We look forward to seeing you there!
Do you hear that? The sound of every imageboard being flooded with obvious preteen posts? That means that it's time for another Summer! For the Northern Hemisphere, now's the time of hot sun, beach bodies, and fan prices skyrocketing. But for us, it was Tuesday. But amongst the forehead-rubbing insanity of yet another influx of terrible [NAUGHTY WORD]posting is a whole new seaon of anime! Want to take a peek at what's on the menu, but don't want to do any of the work that comes with picking and choosing shows? Well, take the blue pill and keep watching whatever shonen you're half-way through...or take the red pill, and POWA shows you just how deep the rabbit hole goes.
It's another seasonal preview screening! For those who came in late, this is the latest of a long-lasting club tradition where we showcase the committee's favourite anime of each season! What shows do we think stand above the rest? Which cuisine reigns supreme? You'll just have to come down this Sunday and see for yourself.
Opening and break times are as per normal. As the anime on offer changes from season to season, our genre variety may suffer as a result this week. But will it? Will it really? Only one way to find out! The way is coming down, if that wasn't clear. Just making sure we're on the same page here.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Events :: POWA, the Consulate of Japan and the Japan Foundation present: The Garden of Words - 7.101
Oh boy, we've got something special this time! POWA is proud to collaborate with the Consulate of Japan and the Japan Foundation to bring a very special screening of the fantastic and award-winning anime film Kotonoha no Niwa ('The Garden of Words' in English)! Best of all, there's zero charge! Entry is free as a bird that's just paid off the last of its student loans! There's also the chance to win a fabulous door prize, just by coming down!
On a rainy morning in Tokyo, Takao Akizuki, an aspiring shoemaker, decides to skip class to sketch designs in a beautiful garden. This is where he meets Yukari Yukino, a beautiful yet mysterious woman, for the very first time. Offering to make her new shoes, Takao continues to meet with Yukari throughout the rainy season, and without even realizing it, the two are able to alleviate the worries hidden in their hearts just by being with each other. However, their personal struggles have not disappeared completely, and as the end of the rainy season approaches, their relationship will be put to the test.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start, with the film concluding at about 8:30pm before doors close at 9pm. There'll also be a neato survey that you can fill out afterwards!
We hope to see you there!

We have a new Drama show, with Mawaru Penguindrum enetering our lineup! The series revolves around the Takakura twins Kanba and Shoma whose dead younger sister Himari was brought back to life by a strange spirit who resides in a penguin-shaped hat. However, in exchange for extending her life, the spirit tasks them to seek out an item known as the Penguin Drum with assistance from a trio of strange penguins. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable made a welcome entrance last week as well.
Non Non Biyori is ending soon, and we need suggestions! Check out the Club Discussion subforum for details.
