Looking for a lively and colourful bunch? Look no further!
What we're about
The Anime and Manga society is dedicated to anime (Japanese animation), manga (Japanese comics), visual novels and other aspects of East Asian popular culture. If you're unfamiliar with otakudom, you may have heard of popular anime series like Yu-Gi-Oh, Sailor Moon, Naruto and Dragon Ball!
During term time we have weekly anime showings on Thursdays between 6.30pm and 9.00pm.
It's a bring & vote system where we watch five episodes a week, so we get to watch whatever you want!
Our members' favourite shows in 2016/2017 included My Hero Academia, Yuri!!! on Ice, Youjo Senki, The Devil is a Part Timer! and Little Witch Academia. Check 'em out! You can find more legal streaming options for anime here.
We meet in the Old Bar from about 5pm for anyone who is confused about where the showings are and for a quick pre-social natter. We welcome everyone and anyone to come and join us!
We also head down to the Hedley Verity for food and drinks after our showings, so it's definitely worth coming along and making wonderful new friends!
We hold a fortnightly Clubhouse event, usually at LUU Little House which allows you to chat to your fellow nerds and browse the society's extensive library with ease. We also hold semi-regular Marathon Showings (2016/17 marathons included Nichijou and sci-fi anime) which involve binge-watching anime in excellent company. There's always something going on with AnimeSoc!
Watch out for our weekend film days, group karaoke, Bowling trips, Cosplay & Drawing Workshops and joint events with other societies like the annual Xmas party, Thought Bubble Festival, our club night Geek Night, convention trips (last year we went to Birmingham MCM!), threatrical screenings, our annual freshers tour of Leeds City Centre, and many many more.
Autumn 2017 events are TBA - check back soon!
Membership is only £4 for the year and you get 10% off everything at Travelling Man and Forbidden Planet as well as free admittance to our showings and regular events.
It will also give you access to our ever expanding library of anime, manga and visual novels - feauturing manga series including Berserk, Dragon Ball, Food Wars, One Punch Man, and much, much more!
If you're interested, whether you're completely new to anime or have been watching it for years, come on down and check us out- we’re a very inclusive and friendly bunch! It’s a great way to meet like-minded people and you certainly don't have to join up straight away. We don't bite!
