CUAMS is the Cambridge University Anime and Manga Society. It was founded over a decade ago as CUCAS (Cambridge University Comics and Animation Society) with the intention of promoting comics and animation in general throughout Cambridge. Our focus has since shifted to specifically Japanese anime and manga, though our membership still consumes a wide variety of media.
We show anime twice a week: a main meeting on a weekday, and a second, smaller meeting on Sundays. Both meetings last about 3 hours, including breaks for drinks and snacks, and we tend to show episodes from three different series at each meeting — you can check the schedule page to see what we’re currently showing and how far through we are.
There are also occasional trips out to restaurants, the cinema, and the annual Garden Party. We aim to at least mention everything through either e-mail or the website, but more informal events often end up being organised through Discord. If you have any questions or just want to keep in touch, feel free to join.
The society is open to all and not just limited to students and staff of the university so if you’re in the area, feel free to come say hi.
