JMAC SQ Week 1: PR Applications, AnimeChicago Panel, and Noragami

What’s up, JMACers, and happy spring break!

Although it’s technically still spring break, the upcoming quarter is on the horizon! For me, spring quarter includes warmer weather, finishing up my senior thesis, and ACen! Y’know I’m sooo excited for this new quarter I’m gonna to emphasize all the subsections of this weekly email in Comic Sans!

PR applications open! (but not for long) D:

Would you like to become more involved with JMAC? Want to help organize JMAC events? Interested in eating pizza with a voice actor?? If so, consider joining JMAC board as a 2016-2017 Public Relations (PR) member!

Becoming a PR is a great start to becoming more involved with the club. (You’d be joining a group of awesome people!) (It’s also the starting point of becoming JMAC president.) PR members are responsible for organizing and promoting club activities. :D

To apply for PR, write a paragraph that includes (1) your name, (2) your current year in school and (3) why you’d make an awesome PR member! Candidates for PR will be interviewed during the beginning of spring quarter. Write professionally, and email us before Monday, March 28th at 11:59pm.

We’re looking forward to reviewing PR applications! (plz send us PR applications)

Next Week’s Meeting: Spring Quarter Week 1

The first meting of the quarter is almost here! Join us for a fresh start to JMAC on Monday, March 28th from 4-9pm in room 324 of the Lincoln Park Student Center.

Our social hour starts at 4pm, which will be a special panel hosted by the lovely folks at AnimeChicago! They’ll be hosting a panel about the anime social-scene in the Chicagoland area.

During our 5pm PowerPoint, we will have a special announcement to make about JMAC!!! (sooo be sure to come!)

After the PowerPoint, our weekly showing will be Noragami. This series follows Yato, a minor deity and self-proclaimed "Delivery God." Because he does not have a shrine in his name, he takes on odd jobs to earn money. After an almost-fatal car accident, he meets middle schooler Hiyori Iki who helps turn Yato’s luck around.

And finally, we will begin the new running series for the Spring Quarter, Gatchaman Crowds. This anime follows Hajime Ichinose, an enthusiastic girl who’s selected to become a "Gatchaman" warrior that fights against mysterious alien life forms known as MESS. However, Hajime doesn’t take her duties very seriously and causes dismay amongst the other Gatchaman fighters.

Last Week’s PowerPoint: WQ Week 10

Technically not last week, but nonetheless, it’s the latest and greatest JMAC PowerPoint! You’ll find the slides to the final WQ PowerPoint attached to this email. The slides are themed with Cool Japanese Fast Food, feature a new manga for the month of March, and includes a video that is the ending to the anime Nichijou.

Stay spunky, JMAC!
