The UBC Anime Club holds a variety of events! Our events include, but are not limited to, the following:
Weekly Anime Showings and Activities
Every Friday during the school term, members of the club meet up to watch anime, enjoy dinner together, and then conclude the night with a unique activity.
Typically, the anime we watch are those of new seasonal anime that are currently airing in Japan. The activities are different every week, but just to name a few: Karaoke, Video Games, 4Koma/Fanfiction Night, Boardgames, Food Outings and more!

Artists Workshops & Meetups

Two socials are held per year: the Halloween Social in October and the Valentine’s/White Day Social in February/March. Cosplay is always present and the event will also have games, food, prizes, and more. Check out others’ costumes for ideas, come in cosplay yourself, or just hang out and chat!
The youngest of our events, the annual Cosplay Cafe hosted by the UBC Anime Club attracts fans of cosplay, maids, live entertainment, and of course, desserts and refreshments!
Scattered throughout the year, food outings are a great way to socialize with other anime/manga/cosplay lovers while enjoying fantastic food. Locations, dates, and times are decided by members.
Every summer, the UBC Anime Club visits Minicomi, a smaller convention that helps support local artists.
MiniComi is a family-friendly, free-to-attend, single-day art market held annually in Vancouver. Dozens of artists gather each year to sell art of various forms, such as comics, prints, accessories, plushies, and clay creations. While some artwork is inspired by popular media (such as movies or Japanese animation), others are completely original. We welcome everything!
