Despite the insanity of the last few months, UBC Anime Club is determined to continue on with weekly weeby activities, and the newsletter alongside that. We’ll be using Discord as our main platform for all online activities, so be sure to join if you haven’t already, and weeklies take place every Friday from 7:00PM to 10:00PM or later. Updates on what we’ll be doing each week will come through our Facebook group and #events channel in Discord. Give yourself the activities role in our Discord server by typing:

As we’re reviving our weekly newsletter (sign up for it here) for our online club activities, with fewer events we have more newsletter real estate to fill. Do you have an anime-related artwork, cosplay, video, or any kind of content you’ve made and are proud of? Email us, or contact us either through our Facebook page or @exec on Discord to submit your work and social media links so we can feature you!
On behalf of the 2019 executive team we would like to congratulate you on finishing finals and the conclusion of another academic term. With this comes a goodbye as well from the 2019-2020 executive team. We would like to thank you for the wonderful year, from heroes and villains at Halloween, icing gingerbread men at Christmas, finding your knight at Valentine’s (via otome game style) and finally the wonderful memories from our weekly events.
We would like to thank each member of the 2019-2020 executive team for their hard work, creativity and time. We would also like to thank every volunteer and everyone who made it possible. With that, we wish you all well and welcome the new 2020-2021 executive team.

As always, we as clubs greatly value your feedback on how to improve our events in the future, so if you could spare a moment to fill out our feedback form, please do.

A huge thanks to everyone who came and participated! It was an amazing experience, and we hope that you felt the same. We really tried switching things up significantly this time, so we’re really keen to hear your thoughts on how it went. Feedback on how this event was received is really important to us, since club reception is what decides if we repeat something like this again!
