The Bangalore Anime Club is organising events and meets at anime film screenings so anime fans can come together for a shared community experience.

Story so far: As anime films were screened in PVR Cinemas and INOX, the Bangalore Anime Club (BAC) was formed, and they started organising meet-ups at theatres. The initiative began after the release of Weathering with You by Makoto Shinkai in October 2019.

  • Recently, the club protested the Hindi dub of Dragon Ball Super movie and stated that it should be screened in Japanese.
  • The fans reiterated that they are comfortable with anime in Japanese with English subtitles.

Growth of anime: Many anime fans feel that the existence of the BAC is a crucial step to maintaining the growth of anime in India. Although it is very popular, it is still a very niche category. A member of the BAC also organized many anime quizzes which are usually held at IISc.
