Hello everyone, and welcome to the Japanese Media Appreciation Club at DePaul University!!
From nostalgia anime viewers to hardcore cosplay weebs, JMAC is the place for anyone with an interest (whether minuscule to majuscule) in Japanese media to connect with one another other. Our meetings are quite laid back, so feel free to stop by at any time!
My name is Sara, DePaul (super) senior and JMAC secretary~ I’ll be writing weekly emails to keep you informed with general announcements and special events for the club. :)
Fall Quarter Week 1
The first JMAC meeting will be held on Monday, September 12th from 4-9pm inMunroe Hall room 114-116 (a really big, three part room on the first floor). We’ll begin at 4pm with social hour to get to know our members, both new and old.
Join us for a viewing of The Boy and the Beast at 5:30pm. This highly acclaimed movie follows 9-year old Ren, running away from Shibuya and wandering into the beast realm of Shibuten. Ren meets the fierce warrior Kumatetsu, and the two, fierce-willed souls are thrusted into an adventure that spans the two worlds.
Lastly, we will begin watching From the New World at 8pm throughout fall quarter as JMAC’s running series. This series follows 12-year old Saki Watanabe and her friends living in a world of complex rules and a society of fragile peace. This coming-of-age story journeys through their roles in a supposed "utopia" as they learn the dark, shocking truths of society.
Keep in touch with JMAC!
If you have any questions, email us at anytime~
We’ll see you on Monday!
