Thanks for coming to check us out on this year’s rather… different Imagine Day. This page serves as a hub of relevant links for you to click through, as well as a general overview of who we are, what we do, and what we have planned for today.
Until further notice, the vast majority of real time interaction, whether it’s chatting or running online versions of our weekly activities, will take place in our Discord. You can chat to us (the execs) in real time for whatever you need, as well as other members!
For Imagine Day, the schedule is as follows. These games will be hosted via our Discord. Check the #imagine-day channel for live updates, more information, or to ask related questions!
2:00 – 4:00 PM: Jackbox Party Games 4:00 – 6:00 PM: Skribbl.io
We’ll also be streaming classic comedy anime such as Nichijou for you to have a more casual anime-and-chill hangout just to chat throughout the entire event, hosted by our Librarian.
Have more general questions about the club that aren’t answered here? We’ll also be hosting a UBCAni Q&A panel (once again, in Discord). Stop by to say hi or ask whatever you like!
Join our mailing list for weekly newsletter updates on what we’re planning each week as well as events, both hosted by us and relevant ones from partners, and featured artwork from our own members.
In essence, UBCAni is a social club for anime fans to gather and sometimes do anime related activities. Throughout the school year, we cycle through different activities for members to participate in each Friday evening, from 5PM onwards. While we have dedicated time blocks for anime viewings and artist meetups, the main focus of each weekly is the activity, which includes things like karaoke, board games night, video games night, group dinner outings, and much more. Since we’re online for the time being, our online activities are usually playing some sort of game together online such as Skribblio, Mafia, Anime Music Quiz, etc.
Throughout the year, we also host bigger, paid events such as our Halloween and Valentine’s Socials and a cosplay cafe. The first event will be our icebreaker, so mark your calendars for September 25th!
For more information, feel free to explore the tabs at the top of our website, ranging from who our sponsors are (flashing your membership card will get you discounts and deals), our current executive team, our mascots, and our other social media!

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.
