Welcome to AnimeUNSW! Formed in 1997 by three financially challenged anime enthusiasts looking to support their passion, we’ve since grown into Sydney’s biggest anime club, catering to members from all around the city. Check out our events, or join in our Facebook group to have a chat!
What do we do?
Our goal is to unite fans of anime and all things related together to enjoy, well, anime and all things related! Anime, manga, drawing, games, cosplay, music, Gunpla, there’s a lot to list. We’ve got a heap of events we do it through too. Here’s a few of the things we do:
- Weekly screening, gaming and art sessions
- Eat-out and karaoke socials
- Events out and about like beach episodes
- Pre/post-exam shindigs
- Gunpla workshops
- Stalls at various conventions (e.g. SMASH!)
- And more!
As a part of the rebirthed AnimeSydney, we also join forces with other anime clubs across Sydney, bringing you super great sponsors and combined events! Some of the things we’ve held in the past include our yearly Christmas Party, a Band Night, and Beach Episodes. It’s a great chance to meet lots of new people from outside our club!
