Today is Thursday, or what I’d like to call Friday-eve. Although Friday will be the actual eve of Halloween, we ought to appreciate all that today has to offer on this Friday-eve, or what I’d like to call "the eve of the eve of Halloween." :P
Saturday, October 31st is the JMAC Halloween Masquerade! We have an incredible lineup of participants showing off their cosplays/costumes in the spirit of Halloween~ Spend part of your afternoon with us cheering them on in room 314AB of the Lincoln Park Student Center from 12-4pm. Munchkins will be served!
On Saturday, November 14th, the Japanese American Service Committee is holding their annual Holiday Delight – Kodomo Matsuri (Children’s Festival). This is a community event with food vendors, taiko performances, traditional dancers and a visit from the large holiday fellow in red. JASC is seeking volunteers for this event! If you’d like to volunteer, email us with "JASC Volunteering" in the subject and we’ll put you in contact with Monse, a former JMAC vice president, for more info about this opportunity!
Next Week’s Meeting: Fall Quarter Week 8
Join us next week, Monday, November 2nd from 4-9pm in room 325 of the Lincoln Park Student Center for a meeting with the best Japanese Media Appreciation Club on the DePaul campus! :D Our meeting will begin with a social hour of nostalgic karaoke — singing to tunes from childhood television shows~
Our weekly showing for the next meeting will be Princess Tutu. This fairy tale-like anime begins when the young duckling Ahiru is transformed into a human girl. Using her egg-shaped pendant, Ahiru becomes Princess Tutu, a beautiful ballerina, and is faced with the challenge to relieve people from the turmoil in their hearts.
Following the weekly showing, we’ll continue with more episodes of our live action running series The Hero Yoshihiko and the Demon King’s Castle. With a comedic Halloween-themed episode behind us, what will happen next time in our hero’s adventures?
Last Week’s PowerPoint (Week 7)
Attached are slides from the PowerPoint from last week, themed with a variety of Japanese vending machines. This is the final week to find out more about our featured shoujo manga about twins, and a music video by a j-rock band currently touring the U.S. with alternative bands Sleeping With Sirens and All Time Low.
Hope to see ya at the Masquerade, and have a happy Halloween!
