Is it free or you charge members?
It’s free to come in and watch anime, do most events, but you need to pay to be a full member and vote on things like showings and hold officer positions. We don’t make you pay unless you want to have more perks. Please check the membership page for more info. Most members start paying after a few meetings and deciding if they like the Anime Manga Society. To gain access to all possible club activities they eventually pay for a semester or year membership.
