Halloween With the Ninja Team!

Hi Everyone!

 

The Ninja Team was born in October, so we thought it would be fun to celebrate their premiere before the month is out - barely. Our previous online viewing event was a big success in July and we're thrilled to present another - this time it will be Halloween With the Ninja Team!

Sorry, we won't have any candy or costumes for anyone. But what we will have is a 90 minute collection selected to scare, surprise and maybe even shock! You might think you know the Ninja Team, but after you spend a Halloween with them, you may never consider them the same way again! Okay, that's quite enough hyperbole... Even I was groaning. We'll be presenting some of the scariest episodes of Gatchaman, Battle of the Planets and Gatchaman Fighter, along with commercials, newly-subtitled shorts you won't see anywhere else and a new item. Intrigued? Good, gooood... With 2020 being what it is, we figure most of us will probably be stuck inside for the holiday anyhow. So why not spend it online with some friends?

We're going to hold the meeting in my existing chat room again. I will provide links to everyone in the room so we can watch the clips and live chat about them together. Why not a Zoom-style video get together? For a variety of reasons; the chat room exists already, it's extremely simple to use, does not require anyone to sign up for any new services and keeps people anonymous. Future events might try a video conference if people want to attempt it. But for this one, we're going to go the route of the chat room again.

Halloween With the Ninja Team will take place on Saturday, October 31st from 6PM to 8PM, Eastern time. Which works out to the following:
3PM to 5PM Pacific (Los Angeles)
6PM to 8PM Eastern (New York)
11PM to 1AM (London)
7AM to 9AM Sunday morning (Tokyo)
8AM to 10AM Sunday morning (Sydney)

The program will run 90 minutes, but the two hour window will allow for latecomers and discussion. The chat room will be open afterward as long as people want to stay and talk. In addition to the videos we can discuss recent events, answer questions and share stories.

GatchaCon Chat Room

You'll have to create a nickname, and then click the "Connect" button (there is no Authorization or Password necessary).

Once you get into the room, you'll see the phrases "#gcon: Bird Go!" and "Welcome to GCon, BotP and Gatchaman chat!" So you'll know you're in the correct place.

My nickname in the room is "drazuma."

Then start typing and enjoy!

You may not be able to see who is there when you come in, but just type something in the bar at the bottom of the screen to let people know you've arrived. Or, someone may say hello if they see your name appear.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to supply a YouTube Playlist option for the programming this time. If you had problems connecting to the video source for our previous event, it is suggested you try using the Firefox browser. It seemed to work in post event tests for others who had problems last time.

Looking forward to seeing everyone who wants to brave... Halloween With the Ninja Team!

P.S. If anyone would like to try the chat room out before the big day, please come on by. We had a few disconnects and issues for some to get signed in last time, so it might be a good idea to try it out ahead of time. If anyone's there when you try it, I'm sure they'll say hello! Or, if anyone is interested in more dedicated software to connect, let me know and I'll provide a few options.

I'm hoping to be there . . . just not sure if I might have to be at work (believe it or not!).

Won't be showing up for this, got a date with a friend, but I hope it is fun for you all! Been a busy Eagle as of recent, but seriously, hope things cut out for you all.

There's something about watching your favourite show in a group that makes it more awesome, somehow.

When you all find the same scene funny, or someone points out something that might have been missed by the rest. I think it's great to share something you love with like-minded people.

Thanks again for hosting, Jason, and I hope I can participate in any future events.

I totally agree, KT. I would have responded more in the chat if I was quicker at typing! Had we been able to physically gather you all would have heard me giggling and gaffawing at many comments and on screen moments!

Jason, thank you so much for all the work you put in. Great job!

I agree as well. I can't tell you how much this means to me -- especially since the last couple of years of my life have been dominated by medical issues. Thanks so much, Jason!

Hi everyone,

It's been awfully strange not being able to see friends or get together with anyone this year. Being able to watch videos as a group has always been a highlight and I've missed it.

If this helped brighten your day in some way then I'm very, very glad. :-) I'm happy you all had fun and I'm looking forward to the next one - whenever that may be.

If nothing else, you all learned a very valuable lesson this time: Never volunteer to read reports to Katse!

Best,

The Other Jason

Hi everyone,

I've completed the transcript from our Halloween With the Ninja Team event. If you have not heard from me vie a-mail yet, that means I don't have your address. If you would like a copy of the transcript, please e-mail me at the battleoftheplanets.info website. Let me know the name you used in the chat room and I'll get a copy to you right away!

Thanks again to everyone who attended!
