JMAC WQ Week 1: Megaman (the TV series) and D-Frag (the anime)

Happy New Year, JMACers!

I hope your month-long winter break went well! My own winter break has been filled with research for my senior thesis, rhythm games, and research on rhythm games.

Next Meeting: Winter Quarter Week 1

Spend the first afternoon of the academic quarter with JMAC! We’ll be kicking off our first meeting of the year on Monday, January 4th from 4-9pm, located in room 380 of the Lincoln Park Student Center (the room located nearby the Center for Students with Disabilities). During social hour, we will be screening Megaman, the TV series based off of the video game of the same name!

Our weekly PowerPoint is presented at 5pm, where we’ll have several announcements about upcoming JMAC outings and events. It’s at this time we’ll be announcing the (super awesome) voice actor visiting JMAC in early February! Stay tuned for details about our biggest event of the year~

Afterwards, join us at 5:30pm for this week’s showing of D-Frag. Though D-Frag (the DePaul group) successfully manages their own fundamental research in academic gaming, D-Frag (the comedic anime series) semi-follows Kenji Kazama, a delinquent recruited to join his school’s struggling game development club. After putting out a fire, he forcibly joins the cast of eccentric club members!

Our running series for the quarter is… actually a combination of two shorter series. JMAC will show Kids on the Slope (12 episodes) for the first half of the quarter and Terror in Resonance (11 episodes) for the second half. Kids on the Slope is about honor student Kaoru Nishimi meeting the notorious Sentaro Kawabuchi. Through his devil-may-care classmate, Kaoru, a classically-trained pianist, learns about jazz and meets fellow musicians in his new seaside town.

That’s about it from me, so hope to see you at tomorrow’s meeting!
