Deakin Anime Club was established in 2001 and it had one purpose, to unite all lovers, admirers, enthusiasts and fans together in the name of Japanese Animation.

It’s our role, our dream, our purpose and our pleasure here at Deakin Anime Club to provide you with the best atmosphere other than your own living room, to watch anime, befriend like minded people, discuss the good, the bad, the downright horrible and the so bad it’s good anime you’ve seen, experienced and lived through, (It’s a dangerous world of anime out there), it’s not just a social experience, it’s like a family, united in their love for anime.

Here at anime club we strive to bring you the best in Anime every Trimester, to achieve this, we’re always asking out members to suggest the anime they like, and we the council the vote on the best of them, for the benefit of the club’s entirety(Obviously we can’t screen certain things, we may all be adults here but there are lines not meant to be crossed(Save those for Bad Anime Night)).

We also host regular events, both anime themed and not, including but certainly not limited to; City Tour, Trivia Night, Video/Board Game Night, a anime themed dance party Yabaii, Laser tag, Christmas Party and my personal favourite Bad Anime Night (Anime so bad it’s good!), we’re always happy for members to have their own say about events they like to see again, or even for brand new events, our members are our club and we’re always finding ways to include you in all aspects.

  1. Hi there,

    We noticed that you are big fans of anime, so thought you might be interested in the latest run of interviews on our website as they involve a number of high level voice artists, directors, writers, engineers, etc from the anime industry. Our site performs long-form interviews with these artists in hopes of helping the wider public understand the great artistry and effort that goes into producing all forms of animation and supporting aspiring artists. Our most latest interviews has included Terri Doty, Austin Tindle, Todd Haberkorn, Joshua Seth and more, with an even more extensive list on their way, including J Michael Tatum this week!

    Our site is in the process of inviting several of these guests to Australia to meet fans there, but it hinges on there being enough support in the area. If you enjoy these articles and would like to see such artists in Australia in the near future, please show your support and let us know.

    Out site also keeps readers up to date with the latest anime and greater animation news, as well as reviews (anime special coming soon) and fun articles such as 50 fun facts

    We hope you enjoy the site, and thank you for your support of the anime industry
