JMAC FQ Week 9: Witch Hunt and Animatrix

Hi everyone,

This is the calm before the storm, the time before a dreaded finals week and a Thanksgiving feast in the distance; but what’s in the immediate foreground? Ah yes, it’s National Nachos Day! Have some fun and treat ‘yo self (w/nachos) before the finals storm hits. (:

Some Reminders

Next week is DeFrag’s biggest event of the quarter: Geek ‘Til Dawn. This event is an all night lock-in at the DePaul CDM building. Let your geek flag fly all night long with board games, video games, movies and more~ JMAC will be collaborating with DeFrag to provide anime showings all night long!

On next Saturday, November 14th, the Japanese American Service Committee is holding a community event called Holiday Delight – Kodomo Matsuri (Children’s Festival). Though this event features taiko performances, traditional dancers and food vendors, JASC is seeking volunteers for this event! If you’d like to volunteer, email us with "JASC Volunteering" in the subject line to get in contact with former JMAC vice president Monse for more info about the opportunity!

Next Week’s Meeting: Fall Quarter Week 9

Next week’s meeting will take place on Monday, November 9th from 4-9pm in room 325 of the Lincoln Park Student Center. We’ll kick off our meeting with a social hour hunting down evil-doing witches in a social/semi-tactical game of Witch Hunt.

Join us around 5:30ish for Animatrix, the upcoming weekly showing! This American-Japanese animated movie is… actually a compilation of nine short animated films? Which details the backstory of the Matrix universe? Nice.

There are only a few episodes left of our live action running series The Hero Yoshihiko and the Demon King’s Castle. Join us ’round 7:30pm to continue on with Yoshihiko’s adventures!

Last Week’s PowerPoint (Week 8)

Attached are the slides from week 8! This week’s theme is a part of a recurring series about Japanese mythology, with a Pokemon version for this week. The slides also feature a new manga for the month of November and a music video by the artists of the 18th One Piece opening~

Have an awesome weekend, everyone!
