About Us

UWAnime was founded in the year 2000 by a group of university students wanting to help spread anime. Since the club’s humble beginnings, we’ve managed to acquire a clubroom for members to hang out in, with a large digital library of anime series and a substantial library of manga.

UWAnime holds fortnightly screenings in their clubroom, showing a number of different shows, each of a different genre. In addition, members are entitled to read all of the manga available in our manga library. With over 40 different titles to choose from, you’re bound to find something that appeals to your interests.Β  ^^

The banner originally used for this website was designed and drawn by nanochan, an ordinary committee member in 2006.

For more information, send us an email at uwanime[at]gmail.com or drop by the clubroom, located at the 2nd floor of Cameron Hall, Guild Village.

    1. If you are a UWA gold guild member, sign up price is $5, otherwise it’s $7 for non gold guild members, or non-students. Our email is uwanime[at]gmail.com , or you can leave comments here. πŸ™‚ You can sign up to be a member on O-day, or pop up to the clubroom during term some time and sign up then.

    1. Hi there,

      If you are a UWA gold guild member, sign up price is $5,
      otherwise it’s $7 for non gold guild members, or non-students.

      You can sign up by coming to the clubroom during term some time and filling in a form.
      We are generally open every weekday from 11 am or noon onwards and you can just come in and ask for membership.

      You also get a nice shiny laminated member card!

      Our email is uwanime[at]gmail.com , or you can leave comments here for any further questions πŸ™‚

  2. I went for a ride around your wonderful campus today and saw the flyer pity I missed out for the screening but when is your next one being held is it every fortnight that you hold screenings or do you have other special gatherings If anyone can join or come along to have a look around would love to know more about this club. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi,
      Our next and final screening for this year is on Friday, the 4th of November. The theme will be Type-Moon. The screenings are free for anyone.
      Other than the screening and the annual general meeting (Monday, 31st October), we won’t be holding any more events until next year.
      The UWAnime clubroom is usually open on university teaching days after 10am so feel free to pop in and hang out! πŸ™‚

  3. Hi i had sent a email but forgot to ask i already saw you said its possible for people that arnt students to join but when we are down there is there avaliable parking for non students and is it non paying parking or paying just wondering lol

    1. Hi,
      You don’t need to be a UWA student to join. There is parking available for non-students but I believe it is pay parking. UWA is also easily accessible by public transport.

  4. Hi,
    Interested in joining this community – not a student though, and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to attend most of the events due to full-time work. A bit off the topic here, but do you guys play Jap mahjong? I used to play this every weekend in Melb, but after a few relocations I haven’t been able to find any playing partners. . .

    1. Hi,
      You don’t need to be a student to join, nor is there any obligation to attend our events. However, please keep in mind that our club room is usually only open from 9-6 on weekdays during the university semester.
      Lastly, most of the Mahjong players in this club prefer to play Japanese style Mahjong. πŸ™‚

  5. Will you have a stall of some sort or something on O-day, or do I have to find you at your club room on O-day to join up?
    Thanks!

    1. Adding to this: Our stall will be near reid library (inner circle on james oval) Right near leisure/unisfa. Check out the map you get for details! If you can’t make it on Oday you can stop by the clubroom anytime to sign up as well~
