Anime & Manga

The University of Birmingham's society for the appreciation of Japanese animation and Japanese graphic novels/comics. We aim to bring together everyone who is interested in Anime and Manga. Whether you're a hardened otaku, or just curious about anime, you're more than welcome to join us!

Our Committee for the 2021/2022 Academic Year is as follows:

President - Previn Chady
Vice President - Ashwin Nair
Treasurer - Harry Thomas
Secretary - Finlay Pearce
Librarian - Felix Brookman
Social Sec - Charlie Gardner

Our society is currently operating in person, but we are most active on our Discord server, which has over 700 users! Using this as our hub, we organise lots of virtual events for members.

Anime Nights

  • Monday 7-10pm, every week

  • G12, University House (Business School)
  • Anime screenings (4 episodes) and icebreaker games!

Manga library

  • Wednesday 5-6pm, every week

  • Mandela Room, Guild of students

  • Chat and socialize in a more laid back setting, with manga available to read throughout the session! Members may also loan manga.

Seasonal Events!

  • Such as art and cosplay competitions with prizes for winners, karaoke, comic con and other events! Details will be posted on our socials.


Since our server is always active, we have plenty of other informal events run and organised by our members throughout the week, which you're free to take part in, like gaming parties and voice calls! (???)


We also have plenty of initiatives run by our members, such as the Anime Music Band, and the Anime Dance Club!
