Due to the current and ongoing global pandemic, we here at UBCAni understand the struggles we all face together this school year and we would like express our utmost gratitude for your continued love and support during these troubled times. Since club events for the foreseeable future will remain restricted to online platforms, we have decided to significantly reduce our standard membership fees for new, returning, and non-UBC members! Rest assured that our exec team will continue to strive to put these funds to good use in organizing events and activities to ensure the satisfaction of our valued members.

Membership Fees for 2020:

New UBC Student Membership: $5.00

Returning UBC Student Membership: $4.00

New General Membership: $7.50

Returning General Membership: $6.00

As we are unable to accept membership fees in person this year, we will be accepting them through e-transfer. After filling out this form: UBCAni membership form, please e-transfer the corresponding fee to ubcani@gmail.com. After we have confirmed your payment, we will send you a confirmation e-mail with your membership number. More detailed information can be found on the google form itself. Please note that this may take a few days as our club has a lot of members.

If you are unable to pay through e-transfer, we also accept alternative methods like Paypal. Please don’t hesitate to email us at ubcani@gmail.com or message us on Discord or Facebook if you have any questions or require our assistance in any way.

UBCAni Virtual Icebreaker 2020-2021!

To kick off the new school year, we are pleased to announce our annual UBC Anime Club icebreaker event!!! Join us on our Discord server for 2 whole nights of anime-themed games and fun! This year we’ll be hosting our icebreaker online on our club’s Discord server over two evenings on Friday, September 25th and Saturday, September 26th.

What are the UBCAni “Awards”?
Think the Crunchyroll Anime Awards, but the people’s vote is the only one that actually matters, contestants pitted against the next revealed contestant one after the other until one rises above the rest, king of the hill style. Will your waifu make it through all the rounds to win the awards? Vote to ensure victory, and debate is highly encouraged- the saltier, the better.

What is “Are You Funnier Than a UBCAni Exec?”
Adapted from Jacksfilms’s YIAY Live series with the same title, think Cards Against Humanity but all the cards are fill-in and the audience are the voters of the funniest answer- least funny is eliminated each round. Respond to weeb-related prompts with the funniest answers you can think of and face off against the host. May the funniest weeb win!


This year we are holding a member-exclusive raffle where the grand prize is an EXQ Rimuru Tempest figure!


In addition, we will also have other prizes such as keychains and a selection of Fate art prints that the winners may select from!
