UTARPA is University of Toronto’s Japanese Animation Club. Situated in the heart of the new Megacity of Toronto, we not only serve the students of UofT, but also the general populus. In operation since May 1995, we are Toronto’s oldest established and quite possibly the largest Japanese Anime club in the city.
Our primary mandate is to provide and promote Japanese animation (also known as “anime”) in the city of Toronto. To that end, we have anime showings once a month, lasting approximately 6 hours each, where our membership gathers to watch animations of primary Japanese origin (subtitled or dubbed in English). Our annuities shows also include music, raffle draws, and other tidbits, usually of Japanese origin or of common interest.
After careful consideration and after hundreds of messages requesting a site meet-up, we have decided to go ahead and set it up! Instead of a normal meet-up we thought it would be a good idea to do a live action reenactment, we have setup a thread on our forum to organize who will dress as who and the details of the outfits we will be sporting. The Reenactment will be of the Dragonball Z episode 95. “Battle in Kami’s Lookout.” The meet will be located in the field at Garth park behind the Walmart on I-45 at 1:30 on Saturday April 30th. We will be grilling burgers and wieners so bring a hungry stomach and your families.
Membership is open to everyone.
