Showing #1: Movie and Gaming Night

Since the Fall season of anime hasn’t started airing yet, we’ll be watching a short movie: Millennium Actress!

After dinner break, join us again in Buchanan for Gaming Night, an evening dedicated to video games. There will be a PS3 with Rock Band, a Wii with Super Smash Bros Brawl and Mario Kart, and a DDR machine set up with a variety of anime, Vocaloid, and classic arcade DDR songs! If you have a Nintendo DS, bring it to join in on our Multiplayer Mario Kart game, or bring your Pokemon team to scout out new friends to battle and trade with! The consoles are separated by room but you are encouraged to try everything!

Term 1 Art Contest: Anthropomorphism

Anthropomorphism is the theme of our first art contest and is defined as “attribution of human form or other characteristics to anything other than a human being”. Meaning, this art contest is centred around the idea of making non-human forms more human-like!

The rules for this art contest are simple:

  1. You may submit multiple entries.
  2. Entries can be any medium: Black-and-white, sketched, digital, etc.
  3. All submissions must be completely original. This means no content from any anime, manga or any other copyrighted material (i.e Gijinkas from Digimon, Pokemon, etc.)
  4. Entries can depict any object of your choice in human form (e.g. a cellphone shown as a girl), but it must be tasteful meaning no nudity, sexuality, gore, etc.

The winner will be decided based upon two criteria: Creative design and skill.

The deadline to submit is the showing on November 22nd. Submissions can be emailed directly to us at or given to us at any of our events until the deadline.

The UBC Anime Club executive team reserves all rights to disqualify submissions at their discretion if any of the above requirements are not met.
