Greetings, JMACers!

A Few Reminders

JMAC’s Friday Night Movie Night will take place next Friday, October 21st from 6-10pm in Arts & Letters room 203. We’ll be screening film by director and animator Mamoru Hosoda, which are The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars (both dubbed). Don’t miss out on our anticipated movie night~

The 4th Annual Cosplay Showcase will be held on Saturday, October 29th from 12-2pm in Student Center room 314AB! Join us in the spirit of Halloween for this entertaining event… and entry for the showcase is still open!

The grand and runner-up prizes for the Cosplay Showcase are $50 and $25 gift cards, respectively. This year, there will also be rewards based on performance and craftsmanship. Further info is in the powerpoint, but the deadline to enter is Monday, October 24th (aaa it’s quickly approaching)!!

Next Week’s Meeting: Fall Quarter Week 6

The next JMAC meeting will be held this Monday, October 17th from 4-9pm in room 325 (ahha… a different room) of the Lincoln Park Student Center.

Join us at the start of the meeting to catch a panel about anime directors, our social hour for the week~

Afterwards, the weekly showing will be Origin: Spirits of the Past. This animated movie takes place in a world where plant life destroyed human civilization. It follows a villager named Agito and all that happens upon awakening a girl from the past.

And lastly, we’ll continue watching episodes from our running series for the fall quarter: From the New World.

Last Week’s PowerPoint: FQ Week 5

Check out last week’s powerpoint online via dropbox. This week’s theme is time travel!

The slides also feature a SUPER HELPFUL hint about this year’s voice actor, a manga with a "healthy dose of relatable emotions," and a music video from a vocal group that performed at ACen 2013.
