Hello! We are Reading University’s Anime Society!
We meet every Wednesday 6-8:30pm and on Friday from 6-10pm in Edith Morley 124.
If you’re new to anime or haven’t watched a lot of different shows, you may want to come to our showcase sessions. At the beginning of each term we watch the first episode of a bunch of different series, which we will then vote on as a society to continue watching during other sessions throughout the term! You might find something new and interesting you would not have otherwise started watching!
If you really enjoy anime and want to watch a whole series with friends, you’re more than welcome to come to our Friday sessions when we’ll go through an entire series (voted on as a society) a few episodes at a time.
We will give warnings before any episode is shown if it is likely to cause problems for anyone.
During the first few weeks of term we showcase the first episodes of suggestions from Facebook and vote on what we want to watch in Friday's session. Anyone can suggest anime to watch, but you must be officially signed up through RUSU to vote!
The committee decides if a suggestion is appropriate, and will only be rejected if it contains potentially questionable subject material, but there's no harm in suggesting!
We don’t only watch anime, some of our other activities include:
Manga - We have a library of manga available to loan to society members
Dungeons and Dragons - With an anime theme
Socials - Pub crawls, inter-society events
Games nights - Other than D&D we also sometimes enjoy playing board games or party games often with (you guessed it) an anime theme!
Video Games - We not only have video game nights as a society, but also have an extremley active discord server where we play a plethora of games such as: Stellaris, HOI4, PUBG, Roblox (seriously), Rainbow six, Overwatch, Minecraft and whole load of other games.
Ice skating- Now with 30% less life threatening injuries!
During exam period we don’t always meet in the same room because it’s used for exams, please check the Facebook group just in case!
