SMACK UQ is UQ’s very own anime club-turned-social group! We have weekly events including screenings and games nights, we go to Redroom and later dinner every Tuesday to take advantage of our discounted sponsor restaurants, and we also have regular parties, karaoke sessions, kick-ons, and more. If that wasn’t enough we also do infrequent big events such as beach days, camping trips, art competitions, convention pilgrimages, and so much more. Our Discord is constantly popping off both in text and voice chat, and with over 700 members there’s always something fun going on. We’re probably the only anime club that ends up making people watch less anime after they join – they’re too busy hanging out with the coolest group on the planet. If this sounds like a good time (spoiler: it is) then join our Discord at https://discord.gg/smackuq and get a taste!

FAQs

We hold events every Tuesday during semester, usually from 5:30 – 7:30pm, with dinner afterwards. These are usually held in the Steele building at the St Lucia campus. Our normal structure is weekly anime screenings where we watch 4 episodes of our chosen show, broken up with monthly games nights, trivia nights, karaoke, and occasional movie screenings. We watch 2 shows, 1 movie, and hold 3 game/trivia nights a semester. More details are available on our Facebook or Discord.

At the start of each semester our members put in show recommendations. The executives assemble a shortlist, which members vote on at our Get To Know You Party. The top 4 shows have their first episode screened at our Battle Of The Pilots, and we have a final vote to decide which one we continue with, which will be the first anime of the semester. Once we’ve watched that anime, each executive picks one and the members vote on that, the winner of which is the second anime of the semester. All movies are chosen by the exec team with no vote.

Yes we do, and they’re a great way to meet other members and have some fun. Each semester we hold a Get To Know You Party in the first week to welcome all the newbies and do games like anime music quiz. Sponsor Tour happens a few weeks later, where we take everyone around to all our sponsors across Brisbane to get those sweet discounts. After exam blocks we have our end of semester dinner, and we have events on weekends and during the holidays too! Beach trip in the summer, camp in the winter, convention pilgrimages, and other random weekend events like hobby workshops.
