What we're about


We're currently looking into spaces and places to transfer our Thursday Night Hang Outs from online-only to in-person. Watch this space for future updates.


A group focused on anime/manga fans meeting other manga/fans. If you're interested in the following then this is the group for you:

• Meeting new people interested in everything both sugoi and kawaii

• Discussing anime and manga both new and old, and recommending new series, streaming platforms, resources etc.

• Attending conventions taking place in the Bristol/Bath area (Covid-Secure)

• Attending online watch-parties

...and more things which I've probably forgotten to mention!

Due to the current situation revolving around Covid-19, the Meetup platform is currently being used as a springboard to The Anime Club's own Discord Server. This is where much of the discussion will be taking place, with Meetup.com acting more as an event management and calendar tool.

To be invited to the Discord Server, join the meetup and await approval by organizer. You should be prompted with two or three quick questions before your membership is approved (no need to panic, it's not an interview, if anything it's more for feedback purposes).

With all that being said, join the group! Start a discussion! Make a suggestion!

Anime Club Social - Outside!!!

Kongs of King Street

You asked, we answered!

The first of what will hopefully be a monthly social gathering, outdoors instead of on Discord!

We'll be meeting at Kong's on King Street, Bristol Town Centre. The aim of the evening is to just chill out with fellow anime fans and mingle. As it's Kong's, there will be coin operated arcade games to play, and we'll also be bringing a couple of board-games, manga, and sketch pads to doodle in. We won't say no to you bringing any of the above also, anything that starts a conversation is welcome :)

We're still feeling our way around these, so bear with us while we figure out the best way to plan future outdoor events like these. Suggestions and feedback is always welcome!

Weekly Hang Out [Discord]

Online event

New to the Meetup and our Discord? Come on down and say hello!

Every Thursday from 19:00pm till at least 21:00pm - pop in to one of the Discord server's voice channels! (labelled either 'Room 1/2/3')

Guaranteed there'll always be someone to talk to about what you're currently watching, or even how your week's been going so far. We occasionally break out some games, or watch content like anime episodes or trending youtube videos on the subject.

P.S. Not part of our Discord yet? Send one of the hosts a private message and we'll get you sorted :)
