Just in case you you don’t know where the EHCA is:

The University can be a bit of a hassle to get around.

The EHCA is the new building across from the hospital. On a bright day it looks something like this:


Quite colorful.

By LRT you want to stop off at the Health Sciences Station and walk north. Or walk south from the S.U.B. building.

Website Move

Hello Everyone,

Nearing the End of September we shall no longer be using the old www.bakaclub.com website. Instead we will be moving to a new domain www.bakaclubuofa.com. The new website is currently being updated and shall be completed soon.

Unfortunately the new site will not have a forum as there has been limited forum activity from active student members; therefore it is more practical to focus on using the site as a blog/ announcement page. Discussion is much more active on the Facebook group page on https://www.facebook.com/groups/BAKAclubuofA/ and we highly encourage you keep up to date with this group as we do not always have time to update every page.

We hope you like the new page and encourage you to email baka@ualberta.ca with any questions or concerns.


Baka Executive


Hello everyone,

We’ll be starting a new year very soon and I have a few exciting announcements to make.

First off this year we’ll be giving out newly designed business cards at clubs fair, I’ll post the images as soon as they are finalized, but they have all out contact info and a snappy Kaia image on them.

Second order of business we are going to change the meeting structure, the days of watching anime for hours is long in the past and we need something more fun and engaging to keep the club fresh and new. Instead of weekly marathoning anime, we will be trying out different activities along with watching a few episodes each week.
There will be re-dubbing of animes, guessing the content of a show based purely on an AMV, anime themed game nights, contests and prizes, themed nights where we show off the best and worst anime we’ve ever seen, nostalgia nights and much much more

The first meeting will consist of cards against humanity ANIME STYLE

how it’s going to work: we will be building an entirely new deck of cards based on your suggestions, we’ll need characters, voice actors, tropes, themes and much more

Don’t know what it is? check it out here: http://cardsagainsthumanity.com/

I’m sure you can all come up with a TON of great cards and it’ll be hilarious to play~

Of course we’ll also show some anime/ amv’s as we’re doing this for background noise, or we can just tune into a Japanese radio.

Let me know what YOU want

I’m very excited to start running the NEW Baka meetings!

Out of Country

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE: I will be out of country for a week starting August 22nd
please direct all queries to Petar or Kyle while I am gone

please keep preparing for clubs fair and hopefully get the art for the banner done in time for September. TV ads shall be submitted before I leave, Poster jobs and business cards will be submitted before I come back.

If you have any concerns please voice them now to baka@ualberta.ca
