Anime and Manga Society

Creative Industries

Southampton Anime and Manga Society is a society dedicated to the mutual interest in anime, manga and other aspects of Japanese culture..

Welcome to the Southampton University's Anime and Manga Society website. We're a society dedicated to the mutual interest in Anime, Manga and other aspects of Japanese culture.

At the start of each semester the committee shortlists a selection of anime for the society to watch. At the first session of the semester the society watches the first episodes of these anime and each member votes for the series they would most prefer to watch. This is done for three categories - Main and Light and Dark.

Each week we preview a few anime, usually something currently airing or a classic anime.
We then watch a couple of episodes of the anime voted by the society.
Afterwards, we split into two and members watch their choice of the Light and Dark anime.

We meet every Wednesday in building 46 (Physics), room 2003(Lecture Theatre B) at 6:30 PM to watch several different Anime series and socialise.

We plan additional events throughout the year such as pub socials, seasonal movie showings (Halloween, Christmas, Easter), Christmas Meal, Cinema trips, Conventions, End of Year BBQ.

Steampunk Society (Kraken Soc)


Southampton University Steampunk Society aims to provide a focal point for Steampunks, Cyberpunks and Dieselpunks at the University of Southampton. Membership of the society is free, and we are open to anyone with an interest in Steampunk, Victoriana, science fiction and retro-futurism, from the simply curious to the more learned. We're a social society, and run weekly events, most regularly film nights usually followed by a social. In addition we run other events including music gigs, day trips, games nights, workshops and attend steampunk gatherings both locally and around the country. As a society, we also make an effort to socialise with the local groups in the form of collaboration events and attendance to monthly meetings in order to gain experience and build ties with our more learned counterparts. Throughout the year, we aim to have groups of our members attending the Surrey Steampunk Convivial, a small event in February as a way of introducing newer members to a larger steampunk community, and the 'Weekend at the Asylum' event in Lincoln which is the largest Steampunk gathering in Europe. Both of these events are attended almost religiously since their establishment and we intend to return again every year. We run a popular annual Christmas Vintage Ball once again which has little under 100 in attendance and usually held at the union and features performances from the University's folk society and circus society. We are continually growing as a society and hope to continue introducing new elements to our program every year.The wearing of Steampunk or Victorian clothing is not obligatory! (and we do offer advice if you want to start)
