What we're about

The Boston Japanese Anime & Film Social Group is a public social group dedicated to bringing together members who are interested in all aspects of Japanese culture. As a public social group, all are welcome; however, you must be at least 18 years of age to join as required in the meetup.com guidelines. As members, we all have a common passion that links us to the group, but we are not limited to what we may see or do. Our organizers host a wide variety of events and we are always open to ideas from our members!

Some of our events include, but are not limited to, dinners at local Japanese restaurants, trips to museums and cultural exhibits/festivals, manga club, karaoke nights, mid-week anime nights, anime/film movie nights, and crafting events and more. Many of our members also attend conventions in and around New England and enjoy cosplaying. In addition to direct cultural events and activities, our group also goes on adventures together. We may go hiking, kayaking, to non-Japanese restaurants, to theme parks, etc... During these events, organizers and events host encourage and spark conversation that leads back to our love of the Japanese culture.

Overall, The Boston Japanese Anime & Film Social Group will introduce you people that are just as enthusiastic as you about Japanese culture. We are dedicated to bringing people together to have fun and make friends while enjoying the Japanese culture and other social activities, so if you are interested in meeting like-minded people, then this group is for you!

We hope to see you at the next event!

July Digital Manga Club! Vikings, because why not?

Online event

Welcome to another night at the Digital Manga Club! After all the warm slice of life moments last month, we're switching it to something a little more violent! Vinland Saga volume 1 by Makoto Yukimura (hardcover edition). As a child, Thorfinn sat at the feet of the great Leif Ericson and thrilled to wild tales of a land far to the west, but his youthful fantasies were shattered by a mercenary raid. Raised by the Vikings who murdered his family, Thorfinn became a terrifying warrior, forever seeking to kill the band's leader, Askeladd, and avenge his father. Sustaining Thorfinn through his ordeal are his pride in his family and his dreams of a fertile westward land, a land without war or slavery... the land Leif called Vinland. Copies are available at our own Comicazi! They are open, have curbside pickup, and limited delivery options, so call them at (617)[masked] to check your options today!
