Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 14th May, 2016


Below is the program for May 14th, 2016.

We return after our monthly break, hungry for more anime. We are in the final stretch of so many of our regular shows. Soon you will see how last session’s survey will influence the program.
Your MC is slightly peeved that last session’s Bean Poll said you didn’t want to watch the final 3 episodes of “Here is Greenwood”, by 7 to 6. Why didn’t the rest of you vote for it? Now you must borrow it from the library, as we dig up the old Studio Gainax weirdity known as “FLCL”.

A word of warning. The Autumn Equinox has come and gone, and old enemy the sun has been defeated once more. But as a certain series of books warn us “Winter is coming”. We no longer need to use the Hall’s ventilation to cool us, from now on we need to rug to keep warm.

We have almost forgotten to thank Lotteries West, who are preparing to provide us with a grant to continue our good work.
