Anime and Manga Society

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 two categories - Main and Extra. 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. Mains are 2 cour shows (23-26 episodes) while Extras are 1 cour shows (11-14 episodes)

As of 2017, we also have a friendly 'chat and chill' meet-up for further socializing on Fridays at 6:00 PM, usually in building 34/3011 - check our discord to make sure! 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.

Please join our discord to get involved!
