Round-Up!

First of all, we have to apologize for the lack of activity this webpage has seen the last few months. However, we are happy to say that everything looks to be back on track! We gave the site a bit of a spring cleaning (in Autumn no less), updated a few pages, added some features etc. in order for our viewers something new and shiny to look at. Also, if you are visiting for the first time, we’d like to give you a great, big hello! 😀

Games Day is almost upon us. Our members are getting their thumbs ready for a seriously action-packed session of console gaming, competing on consoles old and new across a wide variety of genres. We look forward to seeing people at the DCC at Noon on the 22nd October 2016. Price of admission for all members and newbies is £2 a head. We might even be holding a tournament or two so watch out for updates either on here or the Facebook group (feel free to send a join request – we don’t bite!)

Series 2 Slot: Battle Athletes Victory

Due to an unexpected change in the line-up, the Roberta’s Blood Trail OVA’s for Black Lagoon will NOT be playing at NamSoc and will instead be replaced by the sports/comedy Battle Athletes Victory. We will update on if and when the Black Lagoon OVA’s will be played.

Battle Athletes Victory will begin next week and will run for 26 episodes in either English or Japanese with English Subtitles.

Series 3 Slot: One Punch Man

One of the most popular series released last year, this past Tuesday saw the member-voted premiere of One Punch Man, Shonen Jump’s superhero parody series – definitely one to check out. The series will run for 12 episodes and will be in Japanese with English subtitles, due to lack of an English dub at the time of this writing.

New Event: NamSoc Picnic

With Summer on it’s way, it’s time to go outside! This June we’re hoping to embrace the warmer, sunnier weather with an outdoor picnic. Planned for Saturday 18th June, we’re hoping to make it a day of fun and hopefully the first of many this year. Click here for more details.

Series 1 Slot: GATE

With School finally “rumbled” for now (sorry…), NamSoc now moves over to the recent Fantasy/Modern action mish-mash known as GATE. This screening will consist of two 12-episode seasons and will be in Japanese with English Subtitles as no English dub currently exists. This screening is rated 15+ due to violence, language and adult themes.

Series 2 Slot: Black Lagoon

With Cobra finishing his fight in space, we next take our action back to Earth with the ever-popular Black Lagoon series. The NamSoc screening will be showing all 29 episodes of the series (at the time of this post): 12 episodes of season one, 12 episodes of season two (a.k.a. The Second Barrage) and the third “season” OVA: Roberta’s Blood Trail (consisting of five episodes).

The show has both an English dub and Japanese audio with English subtitles, which will be decided by NamSoc members next Tuesday. It should also be noted that this series is rated 18 by the BBFC due to frequent, strong lanaguge, frequent, bloody violence, drug references, dark themes and shots of nudity.
