Club rotational suggestion slot 2017-2018
« on: October 07, 2017, 05:10:55 PM »

Hello everyone! Here is the thread for the 2017-2018 club rotational anime slot, where you can share your favourite shows to the club!

For those of you who may not be aware, this thread is intended to decide what will be watched in the final viewing slot of each club showing. Each member may pick one (and only one) show that they want the whole club to watch. A show will be picked at random and made known before the showing at which it will be played.
 
The key rules are as follows:

a. The show should be something you think is good.
b. The show should be something you think most people haven't watched.
c. The show must be appropriate (no excess gore or ecchi/hentai/rape, use your brains)
d. Once your show is played, you do not receive another selection for the rest of the year

Remember, you get ONE (1) pick. If you post a suggestion with several shows at once, your suggestion will not be listed.

Once you have chosen your show, it will be added to the list at the bottom of this post. Shows can be suggested in this thread or via PM’s to any of the executive members.

Each show selected will be watched by at least one executive member prior to the showing to verify that it adheres to the rules, particularly rules a and c.

In regards to rule a, please pick a show that you genuinely like, and not something you like because it’s so terrible that you find it funny. Joke anime are fine for things like after hours when everyone’s just goofing off, but using it in the suggestion slot robs other members of the opportunity to show something they really enjoy and that other people may never have heard of.

For rule c, we understand that the nature of some anime can move into more adult territory, and the execs aim to avoid rejecting a suggestion if possible. However if a show is rejected, we will be sure to give you our reasoning on why it was not shown. A show will be immediately rejected if it contains graphic instances of sexual assault, gore, or explicit sex.

With that out of the way, the execs also have some suggestions for the suggestions (insert inception joke here). These are just things that we feel would help when trying to pick a suggestion, but are by no means mandatory:

-Avoid sequels when possible, especially to long running works. This also applies to remakes where knowledge of other series impacts how much the viewer will understand or enjoy the show

-Movies can be suggested, but please let the execs know the length of the film before we watch it

-Try to avoid more recent works (mostly things that have aired within the past 2 seasons)

-If the first two episodes of the show you pick are appropriate, but later episodes are not, please make it clear. We will still watch your pick, but this will help people who wish to keep watching outside of club determine if they should continue

And that’s that! I hope you all have a great club year, and that you pick a set of great shows! Feel free to post your suggestions or any questions you may have.

PUMPKIN SCISSORS

A ceasefire put an end to the long war between the Royal Empire and the Republic of Frost. Three years later, the Empire is still plagued by starvation, pestilence, and soldiers turning into bandits. To aid in the war relief effort, the Empire created the Intelligence Army State Section III, also known as the Pumpkin Scissors.

Considered a waste of resources by some, and just an instrument of propaganda by others, the Pumpkin Scissors still takes their role in the country's reconstruction seriously. One day their life starts to change when a certain corporal with a mysterious past joins the team.

No. 6

"Many years ago, after the end of a bloody world war, mankind took shelter in six city-states that were peaceful and perfect... at least on the surface. However, Shion—an elite resident of the city-state No. 6—gained a new perspective on the world he lives in, thanks to a chance encounter with a mysterious boy, Nezumi. Nezumi turned out to be just one of many who lived in the desolate wasteland beyond the walls of the supposed utopia. But despite knowing that the other boy was a fugitive, Shion decided to take him in for the night and protect him, which resulted in drastic consequences: because of his actions, Shion and his mother lost their status as elites and were relocated elsewhere, and the darker side of the city began to make itself known.

Now, a long time after their life-altering first meeting, Shion and Nezumi are finally brought together once again—the former elite and the boy on the run are about to embark on an adventure that will, in time, reveal the shattering secrets of No. 6."
