“Being odd since 2002”
The Oulu Manga and Anime Club (Oulun manga- ja animekerho) aka Omake is an organization for all who are interested in Japanese animation (anime), comics (manga), language and culture. Our aim is to connect anime and manga enthusiasts, and to spread the word about our hobby. We mainly arrange events in the Oulu region and northern Finland.
Omake arranges all kinds of activities, including meetings, monthly showings of anime, occasional anime allnighters, and sauna and board game evenings. For an up-to-date list of our next meetings, please see our calendar. Some useful Finnish words to know are:
- ”Videoilta” – Anime evening. We watch anime together, discuss our favourite series, play games etc etc.
- ”Peli-ilta” – Game night. Bring your Nintendo DS and/or your best card and board games!
- ”Miitti” – Meeting. Sometimes in a cafe or a clubroom, sometimes in a more unusual place like Megazone or bowling hall.
- ”Puolivälinkankaan nuorisotalo”, ”Puokkari” – Puolivälinkangas youth center in Mielikintie 7. The place where we have our anime evenings.
Everyone who is interested in our activities is very welcome to join the club. The membership fee is 5€ per year and includes a membership card with which you can get discount from Fantasiapelit game and comics shop in Oulu. You can of course come to one or two of our meetings to see what it’s like before you decide if you want to join officially or not.
For more information on joining or the club in general, please contact the board or come to a meeting and just ask! 🙂
