JMAC WQ Week 5: Naruto Shippuden Robot Specials and Gunslinger Girl

Hi, JMACers!

Can you believe that the first month of 2016 is practically over? That we’re already 1/12th done with the entire year? That midterm season is practically upon us? Whoa…

JMAC’s Voice Actor Event with Kyle Hebert!

Best known as The Narrator/Gohan from DragonballZ, Ryu from Streetfighter and Kamina from Gurren Lagann, voice actor Kyle Hebert is coming to give a panel at DePaul! This event will include a Q&A session, a meet-and-greet, and free food!

Next Week’s Meeting: Winter Quarter Week 5

Join us on Monday, February 1st from 4-9pm in room 380 of the Lincoln Park Student Center for this week’s JMAC meeting! This week’s social hour will be a screening of the Naruto Shippuden Robot Specials (mecha Naruto fillers, yo).

The weekly showing for tomorrow’s meeting is Gunslinger Girl. In this anime, a government agency turns orphaned children into emotionless killing machines. Although they are still children at heart, if they don’t play by the agency’s rules, they will die.

And after a short break, we will screen the final three episodes of Kids on the Slope, the first of our two running series for winter quarter. Don’t mind me just getting a lil sentimental thinking about the progress these children are makin’ in their lives and their complicated relationships of love and tales of friendship aaaaaah, yes. :’)

Last Week’s PowerPoint: WQ Week 4 (aka JMAC week 13)

Attached are the slides from last week’s JMAC meeting! This week’s slides are themed with Japanese desserts and feature a video from a Japanese band that has performed with many Western-based alternative bands. Be sure to check out the slides for the final feature of this month’s manga of the month!

Stay spectacular, JMAC!
