New Line Up! – 14/02/12

As of last week, we’ve finished Umineko no Naku Koro Ni. Now we’re replacing it with not one but two new anime: Toshokan Sensō (Library Wars) and Un-Go. Thus, the new line up looks like this:

Time Slot Event
18.05-18.30 Paranoia Agent
18.30-18.55 Puella Magi Madoka Magica
18.55-19.20 Tiger & Bunny
19.20-19.45 Steins;Gate
19.45-20.00 Break
20.00-20.25 Toshokan Sensō/Library Wars
20.25-20.50 Un-Go

However, due to technical difficulties, two episodes of Toshokan Sensō/Library Wars were shown; to compensate, two episodes of Un-Go will be shown next week, before hopefully returning to the above schedule.

Changes to Schedule – 31/01/12 and 7/02/12

This week (31/01/12), technical difficulties prevented us from showing Paranoia Agent; instead, two episodes of Puella Magi Madoka Magika were shown. As a result, next week we will be showing two episodes of Paranoia Agent. Puella Magi Madoka Magika will be shown again on 14/02/12.

Also as a reminder, we will finish Umineko no Naku Koro Ni on 07/02/12; subsequent to this, Paranoia Agent will take over the double slot, and a new anime will be shown first.

Semester Two Begins!

The holidays are are, unfortunately, over; hope you all had a good time, and that getting back to routine hasn’t been too painful.

On the brighter side, AASoc is back. We’ve got three new shows, along with the continuation of three series from last semester. The interesting logistical challenge there* we’re getting around by starting one of the new shows on February 14th; we’ll finish off the last arc of Umineko no Naku Koro Ni by February 7th; after that, Paranoia Agent will move into the double slot at the end and our mystery show will take its former 18.05 slot.


Time Slot Event
18.05-18.30 Paranoia Agent
18.30-18.55 Puella Magi Madoka Magica
18.55-19.20 Tiger & Bunny
19.20-19.45 Steins;Gate
19.45-20.00 Break
20.00-20.25 Umineko no Naku Koro Ni
20.25-20.50 Umineko no Naku Koro Ni

We hope to see a good turn out!

*I’d make a time-travel joke here, considering we’re still showing Steins;Gate, but, let’s face it – I’m sure you can do it better than I could.
