Our Aims

Our aims for 2018-19 are to provide our members with a great environment to make friends, watch anime and participate in a broad variety of activities! 
We hold weekly viewings on a variety of Anime, with themes differing week to week. Largely capping off each viewing with a discussion of our opinion of whatever anime we've just seen or the nuances of whichever particular subgenre we're watching (lol)
We also hold weekly board game nights, which work well as socials for all kinds of people, with a great and friendly atmosphere (that's only slightly competetive, we promise) 
And finally, we regularly hold trips to conventions (at reduced prices for members), as well as classes on cosplays!
Come join our group and find out more! We hold a variety of activities week to week so don't miss out <3
