About Us

NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there will be no regular on-campus meetings. Instead, we will be holding screenings and events online on our Discord server.

We’re the Japanese Animation Club at UCLA! Welcome to our site! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

We’re a club dedicated to facilitating both on and off-campus gatherings for the appreciation of Japanese anime and culture! We welcome all anime fans to join us at our club-hosted events and local conventions, to meet with others who share the same passion for art and entertainment.

JAC is part of a larger network of collegiate anime clubs in California called “Cal Animage”. The Cal-Animage network initially started so that different schools could work together to exchange manga/fansubbed tapes, since they were somewhat difficult to find back then.

The club’s original name was “Cal-Animage Eta”, which means we’re the 7th Cal-Animage chapter. Cal-Animage Alpha is in UC Berkeley. Cal-Animage Eta was founded over 25 years ago, making JAC one the oldest clubs at UCLA!


Meetings are currently held on Thursday at 7-9PM in The JAC Discord Server. We also sometimes hold events on Saturday.
