Welcome to UWE Anime!
Our society invites anyone who shares interests in anything anime-related, regardless of how many shows you have seen or how much manga you have read. To us, what matters is that everyone has a great time no matter if they are new to anime or a veteran. We aim to expand each member's experiences by showing a variety of genres and movies that you might have never heard of while offering frequent socials so you can talk and discuss with friends made in the society.
We are a friendly society who are accepting of anyone and believe UWE Anime is a great opportunity to make friends who share a common interest. We hope you will enjoy your time with us!
Freshers Fair and Taster Session:
Don't forget to visit our stall at Freshers Fair on Friday 20th September 2019! We're excited to meet anyone interested in joining the society and are more than welcome to answer any of your questions. There will also be a raffle you can enter to win prizes on our first taster session.
Our taster session will be on Thursday 26th September 2019 in 1N05. This session will give you an idea of what the society has to offer with an anime-themed quiz (with prizes for the winners!) as well as watching three shows that we believe are of good quality and might not be something you've seen before.
Our sessions after that will transition into our main sessions, but know that our taster session on the 26th and the following sessions on the 1st and 3rd will be completely free!
Our usual sessions are every Tuesday and Thursday and are focused on watching anime between 6-8PM in 2D07.
Our Tuesday sessions are our variety nights, focused on showing different content every single week. We rotate between Genre Nights, Movie Nights, Roulette Nights and Committee's Pick Nights.
Genre nights focus entirely on putting on shows of a specific genre, such as action or comedy. Movie nights are exactly what you'd expect; we spend the session watching a movie. Roulette nights are where members of the society are given the opportunity to put on a show of their choice to watch on the big screen. Lastly, Committee's Pick are nights themed around a committee member, allowing you to see what their personal taste is.
Our Thursday sessions are dedicated to shows that will be continuously watched every week. For this semester (September-December), they will be:
Socials and Events:
At the end of a session, we hold a social at the SU bar on Frenchay Campus. These frequent socials are a great way to talk to people who share an interest in anime or to meet with friends you've made in society. Drinking is completely optional for these events.
We also have socials in Bristol's Cabot Circus where we meet to drink bubble tea and socialize, something that has become a bit of a society tradition thanks to our Participation Officer :)
There are also other events planned, including:
- Christmas Society Meal
- Cosplay Workshops
- Trips to MCM Comic Con and Hyper Japan
If you want to see what the society has planned for the week, you can check our semester schedule here.
The schedule is regularly updated so keep checking back for the latest information.
Social Media and Contact Information:
We have two forms of social media - our Discord server and our Facebook group, which will both be frequently updated with the latest information on society sessions and more.
If you would like to engage with our community outside of sessions or have any questions you want to ask, feel free to join one of these two or both.
Our Discord server especially is active with people talking often and there is almost always a member of the committee online who can answer your questions. Alternatively, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a question for the committee.
