Next Club Meeting: June 22, 2024, at the Fountaindale Public Library in Bolingbrook from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Animatrix Network is an anime & manga fan club located in the Southwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. We usually meet on the third Saturday of each month (except when holidays or conventions coincide). The meetings are free and open to the public. Join us for a day filled with anime.

This site provides news, reviews, commentaries, and previews of the world of anime and everything it inspires, such as live-action films, comics, music, art, and other weird things to enjoy and contemplate.

About the Club

    • The Animatrix Network is a fan club, by fans, for fans of Japanese animation. We helped shape the anime and manga fan community in and around the Chicago-land area since our founding in 1995. Our monthly programming schedule has a wide variety of anime titles ranging from science fiction, comedy, fantasy, horror, romance, and adventure. Join us each month to escape the ordinary world and dive into new realms of imagination!
    • Membership is FREE!
    • Simply register your name and email address to receive the latest info on club activities, meeting dates, and viewing schedules. At the meetings, we encourage all members to network with one another. It is a great place to discuss your favorite shows with other fans, make friends, and even sell or trade anime or manga. Be a part of our Animatrix Network and you can open new doors into the fantastic world of the anime fan community. 
    • Age Group
    • 18-years-old and above
    • Due to the graphic nature of some of the anime we screen at the club, we highly suggest that those who attend be of a mature, open, and consenting mind. Most of the anime we present are for general audiences. Some are family-oriented, while others may contain adult language, violence, and nudity. We do try to provide as much information about any anime we schedule for each meeting but make no guarantees about the mature material it may contain within. Expect the unexpected.
