Ghibli screening at National Library - Another one [15 Jun 2010|04:56pm]

Hey everyone.
I don't know how many of you guys turned up last time, but it appears that the Ghibli screening at the National Library was a huge success, and the Japanese Embassy have organised a second set of screenings. More information here. To summarise, they're showing two movies on Saturday the 26th of June (Porco Rosso and Ponyo, at 1pm and 3pm) and another two on Saturday the 3rd of July (Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro, at 12:30 and 3). All movies are in Japanese, with subtitles. Anyone interested?

Cleaning up the house [25 Mar 2010|08:04pm]

So I'm moving to Japan (ironically) and I have a LOT to get rid of in terms of doujinshi! I've bought a LOT as a student over there and since its at my home, I decided I have no space. I have less than a month to get rid of this stuff so please please please take it off my hands.

I've set my prices including postage, and fandoms include:
  • Gintama
  • Bleach
  • Code Geass
  • Oofuri
  • Persona
  • Tales of (Destiny, Abyss & Vesperia)
  • Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro
  • Original Artists
I'll be adding a lot more whenever I can so be sure to check back! The account may look new but I have a personal account at itako if you want to make sure. I've sold things before but I have to stress that prices are non neg. outside of the $2 discount for Oz buyers.

All items here!

Ghibli screening at National Library - Also, hello ^-^ [08 Feb 2010|06:51pm]

[ mood | hungry ]

Hey everyone, I don't know how active this community is but I thought I'd put this out anyway. By the way, Hey, I'm Kesa [not my real name :P]. I'm sixteen and a big anime fan. Nice to meet everyone :)

Anyway, the Japanese Embassy is apparently doing a screening of a few Studio Ghibli movies at the end of the month, at the National Library of Australia. More information here. In summary, they're showing Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind on Thursday February 25 at 6:30, Kiki's Delivery Service on Friday the 26th at 6:30, and Howl's Moving Castle on Saturday 27th at 2:30. All films are in Japanese with English subtitles.

Personally, I'm planning to go along to the first two, but I'll be at the Canberra Show during the Howl's screening (if all goes the way I plan). Anyone else out there interested?

Oh, by the way - It's all free entry, no bookings required.

Fansubs? [22 Jun 2006|10:32am]

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if there's anyone out there who would be willing to share fansubs with a poor girl stuck on a dialup connection! :) 

I'm specifically looking for Jyu-oh-sei, Kiba, Keras, and Ergo Proxy at the moment, but would glady be open to anything else people wish to share. I'd be willing to pay for any cds/dvds one uses to copy things for me as well as reimburse for postage if we do it that way, plus perhaps a bit extra for your time. 

Thanks. :)

FREE Anime Screening in Garema Place [04 Apr 2006|10:54pm]

Hello, all :]

My name is Aj and I bring here news of an anime event running this Friday, in Garema Place (Civic), for people who haven't yet heard. It's already been mentioned once in this here community, but I thought I'd verify some details.

Volunteers from the ANU Anime Society are running a free screening of Japanese animation in the heart of Canberra's CBD - Garema Place.

The screening will take place on Garema Place's prominently positioned glass fibre cinema screen. Not only is this screen very well placed, it is also an architectural beauty: it won the Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA) Art and Architecture Award in 2000 as well as the NAWIC Achievement in Design Award in 2001.

The screening will commence on Friday, April 7th, from 6pm to 10pm. The screening will focus on first episodes as well as short films from a number of recently released Japanese animation titles so that people can come to the screening at virtually any time and enjoy themselves. There will also be DVD, poster and merchandise giveaways on site.

For more information, please visit http://www.animeau.org

[ mood | excited ]

The people who brought you anime.au.05 and chibi.au.august05 are proud to host an exciting new event in the nation’s capital - chibi.au.summer05!

A one day, mini-convention showcasing Japanese Pop-Culture and the latest Anime titles from Japan.

Come dressed as your favourite character to participate in the Cosplay Tea Party, or enter a piece in the Art Competition to win great prizes. Your trash is someone else’s treasure! Bring along your unwanted secondhand merchandise to sell at the AniBay, or simply search amongst the vendor’s to find that special item.

After something a bit more active? Play DDR, Karaoke or Para-Para at our Big Screen Video Gaming Arena or test your fighting skills with Tekken 5 and other fighting games running throughout the day. Virtual fighting doesn’t appeal? Watch Pai-Lum Kung Fu martial artists demonstrate their exceptional skills!

If you just want to chill-out, rock up, sit back and enjoy the wide range of Live Action Drama and Anime Screenings shown throughout the day. We’ll have a great selection of delicious Japanese food and beverages available on the day, so come along to try something new and tasty.

I'm compiling a list of Aussie artists. If you have a website, deviantart account (or the like) etc please give me the url so I can start the list. Also if you have any links to other Australian artists it would be much appreciated ^_^

I'm also trying to get a list of good anime and manga related livejournal communities if anyone can point me towards some it would be lovely...

Also, is anyone else dying for Howl's Moving Castle?

And...Ghibli Soundtracks if anyone is interested.
