Wednesday is our last regular showing of the year! I know, it’s heartbreaking, but read on! This week we’ll begin at our usual time, but there will be no preview showing. In lieu of those, we’ll be watching two extra episodes of Mawaru Penguindrum, for a total of four episodes (21 thru 24). We will thus reach the end of Penguindrum. If you normally choose to turn up at 7.30 because you don’t wish to see the previews, make sure you come along at 6.30 so you don’t miss anything. After that, we will watch three episodes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (Live Alive, Melancholy V and Melancholy VI) – that will also bring us to that show’s end. Well, with regards to the TV series, at least… After that we split into Dark and Light showings. These are also slightly different this week as we endeavour to finish shows rather than leave you hanging. We will not be watching Princess Tutu or Hellsing – instead, we have two episodes of Acchi Kocchi or of Black Lagoon (11 and 12). This should be a good one.
But that isn’t quite the end of AnimeSoc for this year. On Saturday 15th December we will be watching The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, the feature length Haruhi film. We’ll be starting at around 2 o’clock, and we’ll be in our usual room (46/2005). The film takes place after the main series around Christmas time, so it’s a suitable end to the year. It’s probably one of the greatest anime movies ever made, so you’d be unwise to miss it!
