JMAC FQ Week 10: Cosplay Panel and the General Meeting~

Greetings JMACers!

This is typically the section of the weekly email where I provide some sort of encouragement or witty insight into life. Or lack thereof. Yes. (btw download Neko Atsume, a cat collecting app. highlight of my week right there.)

Some Reminders

Geek ‘Til Dawn is tonight, November 13th! This event is DeFrag’s biggest event of the quarter, an all-night lock-in at DePaul’s CDM building on the loop campus. Check-in begins at 6pm in the CDM lobby for a night of video games, board games, movies, and other nerdy nonsense~ JMAC will be presenting showings of One Punch Man, Psycho-Pass, Summer Wars and Mardock Scramble. ^.^

As as a final reminder, the Japanese American Service Committee is hosting their annual Holiday Delight – Kodomo Matsuri (Children’s Festival) tomorrow, Saturday, November 14th. If you’d like to volunteer and help out at this event, email us at JMAC with “JASC Volunteering” in the subject line!

Next Meeting: Fall Quarter Week 10

Next week’s meeting is the last one of the quarter! Join us on Monday, November 16th from 4-9pm in room 325 of the Lincoln Park Student Center. This week’s social hour will begin at 4pm, which will be a panel about cosplay.

In lieu of a weekly showing, we have the most important meeting of the quarter: the General Meeting! All are invited to offer their opinions on previous JMAC meetings/events and offer suggestions for how to make the club better during the winter quarter.

The general meeting is also when we, the members of JMAC, select winter quarter’s social hours (social activities), weekly showings (viewing activities), and running series (routine viewing activities). Browse through the showing archive on our website to get a gist of showings we’ve already shown~

We’ll conclude our final fall quarter meeting with the last two episodes of our live action running series The Hero Yoshihiko and the Demon King’s Castle.

Last Week’s PowerPoint (Week 9)

Attached is the PowerPoint from our last meeting, themed with Japanese novels in honor of National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo. (You can do it, November novel writers!) These slides also feature a comedic manga about human/dinosaur coexistence and a music video of the opening to last quarter’s running series. (Can you guess which opening it is?) :P

Stay snazzy, JMAC!
