Weekly Events

During term time, we will have weekly online Anime showings every Thursdays that begin at 6:00 PM and will finish at around 9:00 PM!

You guys will vote on whichever anime you would like to watch from our list based on suggestions posted in our anime suggestions channel over on our discord

Everything is played at the highest resolution quality that we can find and streamed online through one of our partners, Tutturu.

Our members’ favourite shows in 2017/2018 included Death Parade, Juuni Taisen and Megalo Box.

Some popular titles that we watched during 2018/2019 were Zombieland Saga, That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime, and Noragami, to name a few!

If you like the sound of those, please come along and join us!

If you want to find out about the showings (or any of our other events), or just want to have a pre-showing chat, come and meet us over on our discord!
