IMPORTANT: After a short hiatus, POWA will be returning to a physical space at Joondalup Library, starting on May 30th. To learn more, see this post.


POWA is an anime and community club based north of Perth at the Joondalup Library in Meeting Room 1/2.

We screen anime weekly on Sundays from 1PM – 5PM, but also host a variety of additional events and get-togethers. Look below or visit our Facebook page to see our upcoming events!

While you don’t need to be a club member to watch with us, becoming one will grant you cheaper entry to screenings, voting rights on the anime we screen, discounts from our various sponsors, access to our library of anime DVDs/manga and more.

POWA Screening, 25th July 2021

Location: Joondalup Library, Upstairs Meeting Room

POWA’s regular weekly screenings continue!

Last week, POWA returned from an extended break to get right back in to our line-up of anime! Our members also decided to continue watching our current Romance series ‘Fruits Basket’ with a vote. For those who don’t know, every 4 episodes, we make sure to check with members if they want to continue watching a show.

Speaking of which, our comedy series ‘The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.’ will be up for its third vote this week. Come on down to the screening if you want to vote to continue watching the regular life of the insanely irregular psychic.

Entry for our weekly screenings is $4 for members and $5 for guests. However, your first time is free! We will be in the upstairs meeting room, of Joondalup Library. Our doors will open at the same time as the library – 1:00PM and we will start screening at 1:30PM, leaving you time to find the room and settle down with some drinks and snacks.

Gundam Month on POWA’s Discord

In celebration of the new film – Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway releasing today on Netflix, POWA is planning to celebrate the legendary mech series with over a month of watchalongs on our Discord server!
Similar to last year’s Ghibli-thon we will be watching the Gundam films available on Netflix via the stream syncing service Metastream, although it’s easy enough to sync up your own copies of the movies too.

These films are a great introduction to the Gundam universe, and will chronologically lead into Hathaway, which we will be watching at the end:

  • Mobile Suit Gundam I (1981) – Saturday, July 10th, 7pm
  • Mobile Suit Gundam II: Soldiers of Sorrow (1981) – Saturday, July 17th, 7pm
  • Mobile Suit Gundam III: Encounters in Space (1982) – Saturday, July 24th, 7pm
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack (1988) – Saturday, July 31st, 7pm
  • Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway (2021) – Saturday, August 7th, 7pm

We hope to see you there!
