The Anime and Manga Society is for anyone who is interested in anime or manga. Whether you are an experienced anime fan or someone who has only just started, there will be something for everyone. It is a great chance to meet like-minded people, and everyone is welcome.
What we do: Every Monday (18:00-21:00 EB.3.19*) and Wednesday (16:00 - 19:00 EB.2.88*) we come together to watch an anime chosen by the society. We watch a variety of genres, ranging from Comedy to Horror, from Action to Slice of Life etc. We also play a variety of games (Tekken, BlazBlue, DragonBall FIgherz etc.) for an hour, as well as having a different activity each week such as drawing sessions, origami, quizzes etc.
On top of the weekly activity, we do other events through the year such as: MCM Comic Con London: MCM Comic Con London takes place at the end of May and October. It's always hosted in the Excel centre, which is just a few train stops from the Docklands campus. We also host our own events such as walk-in cinema and anime-themed parties.
Meals and Drinking: Going out, and having a meal and/or a drink is one way of the society and everyone to bond. We strive to go to a variety of Japanese styled restaurants or cafes and experience as much as we can.
Quizzes: Nothing says "I am the biggest anime fan" than winning an anime-themed quiz. Members are put in random teams and then compete in order to win the title "Biggest anime fan". The quizzes can vary from trivia about different anime, or guess the theme song etc.
Joint events with the Games Society: Occasionally, the Games Society and the Anime and Manga Society will have a joint event, where we all go out for meals, play games, watch anime etc.
We have cosplay themed events with our lovely members that make their own cosplay. Everyone is welcome to join our cosplay events, be it a fully made cosplay or just partial. We give advice and help those that need help with their cosplay or are creating their very first cosplay.
And so much more!
