The Final Showing of Summer 2009 will be next Saturday, August 29th in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 and will be starting sometime between 11:00am and 12:00pm and running until our usual time of 11:00pm. Since it’s an All Day Showing we will have short breaks after every 4-6 episodes, a small break in the late afternoon, and the usual hour long break in mid-evening.

We’ll be finishing up Chocotto Sister which has 8 episodes left and Toaru Majutsu no Index which has 4 episodes and 2 short OVAs, we’ll try and spread them out over the first half of the showing so they don't get too repetitive. Another series that we started at the last showing was Kamen no Maid Guy which has 8 episodes left, we may or may not finish it up at this showing if we don't then it will continue in the fall-term.

Be advised that this showing will have content that is meant for a mature audience, this will be become apparent after we finish up Chocotto Sister, Toaru Majutsu no Index, and any episodes of Kamen no Maid Guy. Not that those three series don’t have mature content, but compared to what will be shown after well it will be apparent is all I’ll say.

See you this coming Saturday for the Final Showing of Summer.

August 4th, 2009: Suzaku Festival

The Society for Ottawa Anime Promotion (SOAP) is proud to announce Suzaku Festival. Suzaku Festival is a new event geared toward the mature anime fan (16+). Our goal is to showcase not only the animation, but also many of the other aspects of Japanese culture.

Awareness of anime has been growing in recent years throughout the Ottawa region, Canada and across North America. As it enters into mainstream pop culture, the nuances and background of this art form is often missed. Suzaku Festival will explore this oft-ignored but important part of anime.

Come on out to the Travelodge Ottawa Hotel on March 26-28, 2010 to enrich your Anime experience!

Suzaku Festival: Ottawa's Festival for Japanese Animation and Culture.

Last Saturday was the first showing of the summer months, we showed:

Gokujou!! Mecha Mote Iinchou 1
Guin Saga 1
Hanasakeru Seishounen 1
Hatsukoi Limited 1
K-On! 1
Kemeko DX 1
Marie & Gali 00, 1, and 2
Ristorante Paradiso 1 streamed from Crunchyroll
Spice and Wolf II 00
Toaru Majutsu no Index 1 and 2
*Alphabetic order not the showing order

Check back here often for the next showing date which will be announced in late May or early June. As a reminder the forums are now online so I suggest to all those who have not done so already to register on them.

The status of the club is that whatever happen over this summer will be the final events. Yes, that means come the fall the club will not be recertifying with CUSA and as such will not be in operation (i.e. not holding events) come September. What is planned for the rest of summer is not official yet, but there will be a small schedule of events and a major final showing (the final showing is official but the date it yet to be determined). This website and the forum will be remaining online for as long as SOAP exists so in case the club restarts at some point in the future the website and forum will already be in place, also the forums provide a meeting place for any possible people wanting to restart the club and of course a hang out for all the long time members.

The main factors that contributed to this decision were the lack of Carleton students wanting to become Executives and the changing Anime industry. For the past few years most of the attendees have been non-Carleton students with dwindling student attendees over the course of the year, this past April when Club Elections were held there were no Carleton students present. Certainly over the past year and half or so the Anime industry here in North American and Japan has changed substantially, companies are declaring bankruptcy, the number of produced shows has gone down, a good number of titles are being insta-licensed (i.e. getting licensed quickly), and online streaming with simulcast is gaining traction. So with these factors in mind the club will be having its final showings over the summer, its better that the club ends on a high note instead of floundering around in the coming years due to the trouble of finding Executives and the possible further changes to the industry.

See you in June.

April 16th, 2009

Well the winter-term is over and all that’s left for the club year is the summer. First so everyone is on the same page the state of the club will be laid out.

State of the Club
Club Elections did not go well this year, hardly any Carleton students were present and the ones that were present weren’t interested in being A@C Executives. Fact of the matter is we have more non-student attendees at the events, it’s nice having non-students coming out to the events but unfortunately they can’t be Executives. Melissa who was one of the Co-Presidents for this year has finished at Carleton and will be moving back west within the coming weeks. Julie who served as Junior Executive resigned. So at present the club only has one Executive, Craig the other Co-President. In addition our Director of Entertainment, D’Arcy, will be remaining with the club and will become one of the Executives. So what that means is the club will need one Executive in order to be able to function/exist come the fall.

Summer Events
There will be summer events this year so check back often to know what’s coming up. The first summer event will be announced in the next few weeks.

Website
The website was had a theme change; hopefully everyone likes the new colours. The text has had its size increased since it was noted that it was somewhat hard to read. The Archive directory has been created; it allows access to both the News archive as well as the Shown Anime archive. The Discussions link has been moved up and relabeled for the upcoming forums. Further updates will be made on the Links page as well as some other minor details within the coming weeks. Plus the Events page has a new calendar on it.

Farewell Melissa
Melissa has served as an Executive in 2006-2007 as Vice-President and again this year as a Co-President. She has completed her studies at Carleton University in the field of Law and will be returning to the west for a year. She hopes to continue her studies at a Law School in the years to come. During the 2006-2007 year she provided her desktop computer, nicknamed Bobo, for the showings since the Executives back then did not have access to a laptop/notebook. We thank her for all the work she’s done for the club over the years and wish her well in her journeys.

That wraps up club affairs for the time being, we hope all those of you who attended the events this fall and winter enjoyed themselves. Good luck on the final exams/projects for those who are students.

See you all in a few weeks time.

The winter-term has come to an end. Yesterday was the Last Showing of the Winter-term which also served as the Final Buried Treasures of Anime Showing. The year went by quickly, in the next couple of days there will be another post detailing the state of the club and what to expect for summer.

For all those of you who are students, good luck on the final exams/projects.

Yesterday was the Last Standard Showing of the Winter-term. This coming weekend on Saturday, April 11th will be the Last Buried Treasures of Anime Showing which will be held in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 from 3:30pm to 11:00pm.

Club Elections, or more properly called who’s interested in being an Executive, happened yesterday. Unfortunately there weren’t any Carleton students who were interested in being Executives for next year, so we’ll be trying again at the showing on April 11th. For more details see the notice above.

See you on Saturday, April 11th for the final showing of the winter-term.

Craig

April 3rd, 2009

Tomorrow Saturday, April 4th is the Last Standard Showing of the Winter-term, we’ll be in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 from 5:00pm to roughly 11:00pm. Unfortunately Live-eviL has not yet released the final episode of The Daughter of Twenty Faces and Sora Kake Girl is only up to ten episodes. Unless something happens between now and tomorrow it looks like we’ll be ending on episode twenty-one for The Daughter of Twenty Faces and episode ten for Sora Kake Girl.

Club Elections will be held tomorrow. The election is going to take place shortly after the start of the break period. If you are going to be a Carleton University student next year and would be interested in helping run the club visit the Club Elections page for all the details.

There is one more event to go after tomorrow, on Saturday, April 11th is the Last Buried Treasures of Anime Showing.

See you tomorrow.

Ok, seeing as its just past midnight.

Yes, Joudan-koukyo Con, is/was an April Fools Day joke. The website is something I threw together in under 30 minutes. For those of you who looked up the meaning of the words it would translate out of Romanji as:

Joudan / koukyo
Kidding / canal

Because the world has a sick twisted way of getting revenge Joudan-koukyo Con may actually become a reality. There have been a few people who have voiced that something on the scale of Joudan-koukyo Con could happen (and some would like it to happen). So with that in mind there may be a large Anime event at Carleton over the summer at some point. I can’t stress may enough.

All I will say is that if Anime@Carleton does go the way of the dodo it will go out with a bang.

See you this Saturday for A@C’s Last Standard Showing of the Winter-term.

Craig

April 1st, 2009

We are pleased to announce Joudan-koukyo Con, an Anime Convention that will be held at Carleton University. Please visit the Joudan-koukyo Con website for more information.

On the weekend of August 15th and 16th, 2009 Anime@Carleton will be putting on Joudan-koukyo Con. Joudan-koukyo Con is Carleton’s first Anime Convention, for this occasion the entire campus of Carleton University has been reserved. We will be putting on events in various classrooms around the campus throughout the weekend. For the first time in Anime Con history we will have an Anime Swimsuit Contest at Carleton’s pool, as well as events on the ice rink and tennis court.

March 30th, 2009

There are two more events to go for the winter-term. This Saturday, April 4th will be the Last Standard Showing, where we will be finishing up our Fall/Winter-term lineup. The final event for the winter-term is the Last Buried Treasures of Anime Showing on Saturday, April 11th.

This Saturday we will hold Club Elections. They will be held during the break period, for more information click here.

Since Live-eviL did not release the last episode of The Daughter of Twenty Faces for last Saturday’s showing the final two episodes have been pushed to this Saturday, hopefully the final episode will be released by then. Also, Sora Kake Girl has jumped up to twenty six episodes (since it was decided upon as a show for the winter-term) and is only up to ten episodes at the moment, so we will go as far as possible with this series up until this Saturday.

See you this Saturday for the Last Standard Showing of the Winter-term.

Added the Japanese Speech Contest to the ‘Events’ page.

Two notes for this tomorrow’s showing. First, if Live-eviL has not released the final episode of The Daughter of Twenty Faces with enough time for me to download it by tomorrow’s showing the final two episodes will be pushed to the final showing on April 4th with the hopes that the final episode will be released by then. Second, since D’Arcy is still out of commission the break time tomorrow will be filled with something different.

It’s that time of year again where we hold club elections. Details will be released within the next couple of days which will detail who’s going to stay with the club and what positions will need to be filled.

See you tomorrow.

Tomorrow Saturday, March 21st is our next showing, we’ll be in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 from 4:00pm to roughly 11:15pm. We’ll be in Minto Centre 5050 for the remainder of the winter-term showings, but be advised that there may be some of the dates that have a different start time. Besides tomorrow’s showing the rest of the winter-term events are:

Saturday, March 28th @ 5pm
Saturday, April 4th @ 5pm: Last Standard Showing of the Winter-term
Saturday, April 11th: Last Showing of the Winter-term and Last Buried Treasures of Anime
*The dates with a start time of 5pm may mean we start a bit later then normal, it will all depend on whether the previous group that booked the room will have cleared out by then.

As a side note for tomorrow’s showing, D’Arcy our Director of Entertainment (the person who brings his Wii for the gaming during the break period) has been injured in the line of duty while carrying around his large bag of gaming equipment. As such he will be unable to bring his gaming equipment to tomorrow’s showing. Since this leaves a break period with no normal activities I’ll be coming up with something for tomorrow’s break, it could be more gaming or it could be some random Anime episodes, only time will tell.

With four events left (including tomorrows) the winter-term is nearing its end. Any plans for events over the summer, May to August, will be announced at some later date. If there are summer showings an announcement will be made sometime around the end of April beginning of May which would pertain to any events in the early summer.

See you tomorrow.

This coming Saturday, March 21st is the next A@C Showing, we’ll be in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 from 4:00pm to roughly 11:15pm. This is the third last showing for the winter-term, the main school terms certainly have moved fast.

As a reminder the club will need two new Executives for next year, 2009-2010. You can view the information about becoming an Executive in the ‘Notice’ portion above. If you are interested in becoming an Executive its imperative that you inform me by/at this Saturday’s showing. You can still email me and let me know you’re interested, however anyone who is interested must be at this coming showing or the showing on March 28th in person. The decision that decides the club’s future will be made soon and as such I want to have a good idea of how things may run next year and over the summer.

See you at A@C's Showing this Saturday.

Places to grab something to eat have been brought up a number of times at the showings, so I have decided to add the ‘Eateries’ section to the bottom of the ‘Location and Maps’ page. Hopefully people find the information provided there useful. If you’re attending one of our showings and are unsure of the locations of the various eateries feel free to ask plus there are a number of people who go and grab something during the break period who could show you the way.

The readjusted winter-term schedule is online, to view it please see the ‘Events’ page. Unfortunately due to the transit strike we lost two showings so the new winter-term schedule has been adjusted to work with the five remaining showings. RD Senno Chosashitsu ‘Real Drive’ has been dropped from the lineup due to the tight fitting schedule and the number of people who didn’t want to continue watching it. If your interested in the seeing the rest of it please let me know at the showing today or by email if you can’t make it.

The showing today is in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 with a start time of 5:00pm and running until ~11:15pm. The new shows for the winter-term are Sora Kake Girl and either Chaos;HEAd or Kurozuka, the decision between Chaos;HEAd and Kurozuka will be made at the showing today.

The official update to the schedule will be online later today. I just wanted to share this with everyone in case you have an opinion about this issue, the deadline for submissions is February 16th.

CRTC investigating Internet throttling

Bell and other corporate giants such as Rogers and Shaw currently have free rein to "throttle" service to their retail customers and those small companies that rent portions of Bell's network to competitively provide internet service to Canadians.

The CRTC is conducting a detailed investigation of this Internet traffic management by Canada's big telecoms. Submissions from the public and hearings later this year are part of that probe.

Canadians must seize this opportunity to tell the CRTC that it must ensure we have an open, fast and accessible Internet in this country.

*From the SaveOurNet.ca Open Internet Campaign.

Your submissions to the CRTC will be considered in the "traffic management" hearings held later this year. Please take a few seconds to send your comments to the CRTC before the February 16th deadline. Join people from across Canada in sending a comment to the CRTC calling for access to the open Internet.

*From the SaveOurNet.ca Act! page.

For more information about Net Neutrality and the Open Internet Campaign visit SaveOurNet.ca.

February 10th, 2009

At the showing for this coming Saturday, February 14th we will be resuming our normal schedule. The schedule in the ‘Events’ section will be updated by the end of the week. Because we lost the month of January (two showings) the schedule has been readjusted. Presently the schedule has been adjusted to work with the remaining five showings however it may be reorganized back to seven showings for the winter-term. If we do go back up to seven showings two extra showings will be added sometime before April.

The new shows for the winter-term will be announced along with the updated schedule. The five showing schedule has two new shows but drops RD Senno Chosashitsu ‘Real Drive’. If the seven showing schedule is used then RD Senno Chosashitsu ‘Real Drive’ will most likely continue. If RD Senno Chosashitsu ‘Real Drive’ is no longer shown then I’ll see about making the remaining episodes available to those who liked the series.

The notice section above will be up for the rest of the winter-term, this is due to the fact that the club will need two new Executives for next year, click here for more information.

See you this Saturday.

Craig

January 30th, 2009

Tomorrow will be the last Shelf Special Showing, it will be held in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 starting sometime between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. The normal schedule will be resuming in February, the schedule on the ‘Events’ page will be updated within the next few weeks.

See some of you tomorrow and the rest of you in February.

The transit strike is over!!

For news about the now over transit strike visit either CBC News Ottawa and/or CTV News Ottawa.

Check back tomorrow evening for news about the showing this Saturday, because the main route bus service won’t be restored until sometime within the next two weeks this Saturday’s showing will most likely be the last Shelf Special Showing. By the looks of it the normal A@C events will resume in February with only two normal showings to make up.

Craig
Co-President

January 22nd, 2009

Unfortunately the transit strike is still on with no end in sight. For updates visit either CBC News Ottawa and/or CTV News Ottawa.

Thanks to the strike all normal A@C events are on hold until further notice. However just because the normal events are on hold doesn’t mean there is nothing. On the dates that there would be a normal event will be the Shelf Special Showing; it will be offered for as long as the normal events are on hold. The Shelf Special is just that an offering of various movies/OVAs and perhaps a complete series. Check back prior to each date on the ‘Events’ page to see if the Shelf Special Showing will be offered.

Because the strike if affecting the schedule there will be a “point of no return” added sometime within the next two weeks. The “point of no return” will be a date that if the normal events haven’t started back up by then will mean the schedule will change so we finish up this year’s lineup by the end of the winter-term. I’m going to try and avoid having showings each week (if the schedule does get that compacted); also it may mean that the winter-term shows that would have been added for this term may not be added.

An Important Note that will be repeated throughout the winter-term is the club will need two Carleton students to fill two Executive positions for next year (2009-2010). The two students must have a drive to run the club that includes getting the CUSA paperwork in before the deadlines, attending any mandatory CUSA meetings, keeping up to date as to what Anime is coming out, getting any screening permissions, carrying around the equipment, and of course supplying the Anime. It’s important to notify me if you’re interested in becoming an Executive of the club. What happens if two Carleton students don’t step forward you ask, well then the future of the club will be hanging in the balance.

The next possible Shelf Special Showing will be Saturday, January 31st. Check back in a week’s time on either Friday evening or Saturday morning to see if it will be held.

Craig
Co-President

January 16th, 2009

While the transit strike is still on, however the light at the end of tunnel may be coming soon. In the news today the transit union has proposed they would go back to work if the city:
Agrees not to deal with worker scheduling changes for the time being.
Hands the rest of the contract issues over for binding arbitration.
The city is to decide on this today at a closed door council meeting at 9:00pm. For the official news article see the CBC News article Ottawa transit union seeks arbitration to end strike.

The Shelf Special Showing will be held tomorrow, since even if the transit strike ended over the weekend the buses wouldn’t be running again until sometime next week. The Shelf Special Showing will be held in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 tomorrow (Saturday), the start time will be between 3:00pm to 4:00pm. The showing will consist of either movies/OVAs or possibly a 12-13 episode series.

See some of you tomorrow.

Craig
Co-President

January 10th, 2009

As the notices state above the Buried Treasurers of Anime showing that was scheduled for today has been postponed until the transit strike is resolved. This was decided so the most possible could see it. There will be announcements as to when it has been rescheduled when the strike is over.

Because the rooms are booked a small unscheduled showing will be taking place tomorrow, for whoever can make it out. This showing will have no relation to our normal schedule and only last for a couple of hours. The showing will consist of movies/OVAs that will be picked at the last minute. Due to the thrown together nature of this showing there will be no gaming.

Shelf Special Showing today in Minto Centre (MC) 5050 starting sometime between 4:00pm and 5:00pm and running a couple of hours. Admission is free and be advised that this showing is completely unscheduled.

See some of you later today.

January 9th, 2009

Please see the news from yesterday (January 8th, 2009).

The decision concerning suspending A@C events until the transit strike is resolved will be made by midnight.

Craig
Co-President

January 8th, 2009

Today is the day of the forced vote for the OC Transpo Union. If they vote no the transit strike will continue if by chance they vote yes the strike will be over come Monday. If you would like to voice an opinion about the strike visit the Canada Industrial Relations Board and view the “Notice to the Public” concerning the transit strike.

As was posted yesterday, because many of the A@C members depend on OC Transpo to get to and from the A@C events I would like all who are A@C members and those who would be showing up just for the Buried Treasurers of Anime showings to please email me and let me know whether you would be coming out to the events even if the public transit system is not working. Depending on the numbers and what happens with the vote today I may be suspending all A@C events until the transit strike is resolved, which will mean that the Buried Treasurers of Anime showings will be rescheduled and all the A@C showings will be put on hold, and yes that may mean we have a showing every week to catch up.

The announcement concerning the status of the showings will be made this Friday evening and be posted here on the home page. So please check either Friday evening or Saturday morning so you know what’s going to happen.

Craig
Co-President

January 7th, 2009

Classes have started back up and the OC Transpo strike is creating a huge problem with many students not able to get to the university and parking on campus is crazy not to mention the traffic on the roads.

With many A@C members depending on OC Transpo to get around, please email me at Craig (Co-President), if you are going to be unable to make it the showings until the strike is over. Depending on the numbers I will either make the content that was missed available or if there is enough I may suspend the A@C showings until the transit strike is resolved. The decision will be made Friday evening so check back either Friday evening or Saturday morning.

Hopefully see you this Saturday.

The First Standard Showing of the Fall-term is tomorrow in Tory Building (TB) 217 from 4:00pm to roughly 11:00pm. We will start up our year/fall lineup as well as have a few things to give away.

We have some free passes, only for club members, to the Death Note screening on Monday, September 15th. If the number of people who are interested in going is equal to or less then the number of passes then the passes will just be given out. If there are more people then passes we will raffle them off. The passes are good only at Cineplex Theaters and the only one in the Ottawa area that is showing Death Note is SilverCity Gloucester, 2385 City Park Drive, Gloucester, 613-688-8800. The other theater in Ottawa that has the film is Empire Theaters.

The Mayfair Theater on 1074 Bank Street, Ottawa, 613-730-3403 will be showing Princess Mononoke on September 22nd and 23rd. If our interested in going, this theater only accepts cash at the box office in order to offer better prices on movie tickets, even though their membership program ends on November 30th its still a very good deal with 3 admissions included in the package for only $18 where as the non-member admission is $9.

This year’s membership cards will be available at the showing tomorrow. For those who have already paid the fee, cards will be handed out. If you haven’t already paid the club dues then a year membership is $10 (unless you signed the sheet at Prelude, in which case its $5) and a semester membership is $5. Be advised that after tomorrow’s showing all future club events will require membership, unless otherwise posted.

See you tomorrow.

The first showing of the 2008-2009 year had a good turn out. Unfortunately our Director of Entertainment could not attend which meant that gaming did not occur for the break period. He will be there at the next showing with a selection of games.

The vote to fill the remaining slot in the fall-term timetable went to Natsume Yujin-Cho. This series will start backup at episode 1 this coming Saturday and the series will end at the end of the fall-term.

The ‘Events’ section has been fully updated for all the showings for the rest of the year. The “Christmas Showing” and “Last Showing of the Winter-term” will have more details released as we get closer to the dates. Special Showings will be announced as they come along so keep checking back. Be advised that sometimes the events will have slight changes or sometimes switched dates (rarely) so always check the homepage and the ‘Events’ section for the latest details.

As a reminder, club membership is $5 for the semester (September to December) or $10 for the year (September to April), unless you signed the sheet at Prelude in which case a year membership is only $5.

The Treasurer and Secretary position has been filled, for this year the position will serve as a Junior Executive Training Position. More details about the new Executive will be released soon.

On Monday, September 15th at 9:00pm select theaters around Ottawa will have a screening of the first Death Note film. Viz Pictures has sent the club some free tickets to the film. They should hopefully be here by the end of the week and will be offered to club members. I have no idea how many free passes we’re getting so depending on the amount will depend on how they are given out. For more details and the theater list see the Death Note website.

The next A@C showing is this Saturday, September 13th, it will be held in Tory Building (TB) 215 (social room) and 217 (main room and Anime Showing) from 4:00pm to around 11:00pm. For a detailed layout of the showing see the ‘Events’ section.

See you this Saturday.

We will show the first episode of Natsume Yujin-Cho and Toshokan Sensou ‘Library War’ and have a vote after showing both. Whichever title receives the most votes will go into the remaining slot in our standard showings.

Later in the evening we will show the small series of Hanbun No Tsuki Ga Noboru Sora ‘HanTsuki’, which is only six episodes.

There will also be gaming and a few prizes to be given away.

See you this Saturday.

September 1st, 2008: Welcome to the 2008-2009 Club Year

The 2008-2009 Club Year has just started and we have already announced our lineup and timetable. This year promises to bring club activities to new heights and the introduction of a number of special events that will hopefully continue on for years to come.

We are a few days away from the start of the fall-term and that means its Orientation Week at Carleton, otherwise known as Prelude. This year Anime @ Carleton has a table at the Prelude activities. We will be on campus on Wednesday, September 3rd from 11:30am to 1:00pm in Alumni Park (the area just behind Robertson Hall, the park with the fountain). At the table we will have flyers and a membership signup sheet (no membership fees will be collected at Prelude; instead the fee will be collected when the membership cards are picked up). As a special to all the new Carleton students, a full year membership with A@C will only cost $5, but this special price will only apply to those who signup this Wednesday.

See you at the showings.
