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!
