The UBC Anime Club holds a variety of events. Pictures from our past events are viewable in the Club Gallery. Our events include, but are not limited to, the following:
Two art contests are held per term and the winner is decided by the executive team. The winner receives a wonderful prize provided by one of our sponsors.
You do not have to be talented to submit art! All submissions are welcome and will be proudly displayed in the Club Gallery.
Two dances are held per year: the Halloween Dance in October and the Valentine’s/White Day Dance in February/March. Cosplay is always present and the event is as much of a social gathering as it is a dance. 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 helps with Minicomi, a smaller convention that helps support local artists.
MiniComi is a 1 day artists market inspired by those in Japan (eg. Comiket). Artists will bring a wide variety of items for sale. This may include self published comics, doujinshi (fan comics), doujinSoft, prints, pins, jewellery, plushies and many other creative things. Like Comiket in Japan, Cosplay is most welcomed!
Check out the Official Minicomi Website for more information.
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, Manga Round Robin, Boardgames, Food Outings and more!
Workshops and Collaborations
The UBC Anime Club also provides a variety of different workshops to assist its members in honing their interests! Workshops in the past have included cosplay, wig, Vocaloid and CG Art panels, all hosted by fellow club members!
Our club isn’t an island! In addition to our own internal workshops, we do our best to reach out to a number of different clubs for events that members of both clubs can mutually enjoy.
