Well, it looks like time is not our best friend, since we won’t have the right DVDs in for the right weeks.
Luckily, it’s a simple fix! This week, we will be showing Garzey’s Wing during the first half of showing. And then next week, we should have Harmageddon ready to go! Also note that Mars of Destruction was not released in the US, so we won’t be able to show it at all (more Harmageddon to enjoy!). However, since it’s widely considered to be one of the worst anime ever created, we highly encourage you to find a way to watch it on your own.
Anyways, get ready to enjoy this month of Unintentional Comedy! We’ve got some of the most terrible things to ever grace the screen, so be excited!

If you thought that last semester’s schedule was wacky, you might want to sit down and hold onto something before you look at the schedule we’ve got planned for you this time around. Coming together at the absolute last minute, we’ve got more random shows stacked up front, some crazy-odd special nights, and (due to timing) the ENTIRE MONTH OF MARCH is devoted to some incredibly funny series that were never meant to be funny.

The semester is already at its end! That means studying, and finals, and the long-awaited trip home… but MOST importantly, it means that it’s time for the MARATHON!
That’s right, CJAS’s semester marathon is coming up on December 1st, right after your last classes come to a close. Come spend a whole 12 hours (or as many of those as you’d like) with us to view our great schedule!
Now, this is important: WE ARE IN KAUFMANN AUDITORIUM UNTIL 3 PM. That’s the auditorium right next to Lewis, where we normally have showing. So, we’ll watch everything including Black Jack in Kaufmann, then head over to Lewis during the break.
Don’t forget to come early and try to get into our GAME SHOW! At 4:25 PM, three contestants’ anime knowledge will be put to the ULTIMATE TEST, a head-to-head competition for FABULOUS PRIZES!!! (disclaimer: prizes may or may not be fabulous)
Enough silliness! Here’s the schedule for you! Come for as long as you’d like, whenever you’d like.

Discotek acquired the license for Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo early in 2012. We were counting on them releasing this series on DVD, but that still hasn’t happened. And so, we’re forced to make a substitution.
Instead of Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo, we will be showing the series that finished next in our voting, The Vision of Escaflowne. As this was voted in as two episodes, this will also push out one episode of G Gundam. Don’t worry, though, there’s still one more in the schedule!

CJAS has some exciting news for all fans of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli!
While licensing costs are usually too expensive for us to show any of these films, a special touring series of new Studio Ghibli prints is coming to the Cornell Cinema this fall! CJAS will be co-sponsoring this series, so make sure you go and get your tickets!
More information on this special event after the jump. Continued…

Tokyo Godfathers? More like, Tokyo Not- uh… fathers… um… yeah, we can’t show it.
UPDATE: We will show two random episodes of Azumanga Daioh, followed by the conclusion of the first arc of Humanity has Declined. Showing will start at 7 as usual.
Due to licensing issues, the scourge of every modern anime club, we will not be able to show our movie, Tokyo Godfathers this week. But fear not! Continued…

At the outset, let me say that I am not an expert in any of these things. Also, this is a discussion of ideas, not a search for problems nor solutions.
All right, so J. K. Rowling is notorious (at least to me) for bringing up a lot of controversial topics and then proceeding to ignore them completely. (I’m looking at you House Elf Rights Activists!) One of her most interesting ideas was the goblin opinion on ownership. In the book, it is a small matter that acts primarily as a plot device regarding the sword of Gryffindor. Basically, the goblins want it back because they believe that ownership of any object belongs to its creator.
