Club FAQ

How do I join the club?

In order to be considered an official member of the club, you must sign the membership list which is available at any showing throughout the year. Membership is valid for the club year that you signed up in and in order to continue being an official member you must sign each club year’s membership list.

How much is club membership?

Anime@Carleton does not charge any membership fee. Our showings are free to attend for everyone.

Can I attend the showings without being an official club member?

Yes, you may attend any showings without being an official club member. If you become a regular attendee we may ask you to sign up, but you may decline. However, if you are not a member you are not entitled to the benefits of membership that are listed below in the next Question & Answer.

What does club membership get me?

The benefits of being an official club member are,
- the ability to attend all our events;
- the ability to vote in any process that requires a vote;
- speaking rights during any general meeting of the club;
- eligibility for any giveaways that we hold;
- the ability to get more involved in the club through Officer or Executive positions.

Do I have to be a Carleton student in order to attend the showings?

No, anyone can attend our showings. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a student at the University of Ottawa, Algonquin College, someone who resides in Ottawa or are just passing through the city.

Besides showings, what other events does the club hold?

Besides the weekly showings the club holds,
- bimonthly sushi dinners where we go out to an all you can eat sushi restaurant;
- marathons of requested series;
- meetups at theatrical screenings.

There is also gaming between members on Steam and sometimes meetups for boardgames.

What is the demographic of the attendees for the club's showings?

The current primarily demographic of the club is mature students and alumni. This may change slightly throughout the club year when we have an influx of new students coming to check out the club in the early fall and winter terms.

Is there a minimum age limit for guests and members?

We do ask that anyone in attendance be 18 or older, due to the wide age range of the content being shown at club showings.

How can I get more involved with the club?

You can get more involved with the club through either an Executive or Officer position.

Executives
Executives are the administrators of the club. Be advised that only Carleton University students or alumni may be Executives.
Officers
Officers are appointed by the Executive to support the club in some way. If you feel like you can contribute something to the club, speak with the Executives about an Officer position.

Showing FAQ

When are the showings?

We hold weekly showings on Saturdays from 1:30pm until 11:00pm. Showings are held year round. The only break that the club takes is over the Christmas and New Years holiday and sometimes over the weekend of Anime North.

Where are the showings?

Showings are held on the Carleton University campus, to find out where we’ll be for any given week, check the Home page. We’ll always have a room posted in the weekly post.

What are Schedules A and B?

Schedules A and B are our weekly rotating schedule of content. Each week we'll rotate between Schedules A and B, this is done to allow members who don't come to every showing a chance to stay current with what is in the schedule that they show up for. This doesn’t apply to the content in free showing.

What is free showing?

Free showing is a part of the schedule that is open to any members who have brought stuff in they would like to watch or introduce to other club members. Please be advised that anything brought in by members for free showing will be at the executive’s discretion whether it gets shown.

Anything that gets shown in free showing will normally get finished in free showing at a rate of one episode per week.

What is a classic series slot?

Starting in 2015-2016, the classic series slot was put on hold.

A classic series slot is a slot in the timetable that we fill with an older series. Series that fall into the classic category are any from the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s. Besides the classic slot, sometimes the weekly slot is used for older series.

Does A@C watch Anime subtitled in English w/ Japanese audio or dubbed in English?

All series and movies shown are subtitled in English w/ Japanese audio, unless otherwise posted.

Are you going to continue series xxxx?

With few exceptions, if we start something, it will generally be finished.

Will you show Anime xxxx?

If you would like to request a certain series, movie, or OVA to be shown, let us know and we'll take it into consideration when making up the schedules.

Do you need Anime for the showings?

Most likely not, we have a fairly extensive collection and can usually track down any episodes we are missing. But it never hurts to ask; at least we will know what all the options are.

Who comes up with the schedules?

The schedules are decided upon by the executives. Member input is accepted, but the final decision about what gets shown rests in the hands of the executives.
