Denver Anime Club Celebrates 25 Years
posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Denver Anime International (DAI), Colorado's longest running anime club, will be celebrating it's 25th anniversary on January 27th.
The club will hold a regular meeting at Gimme Anime on the 27th, however the afternoon's programing will include some "old favorites from years gone by." The programming schedule for the 27th, as well as directions to Gimme Anime, can be seen on DAI's website here
Denver Anime International began as the Denver chapter of the Cartoon/Fantasy Organization, meeting the basement of the Iliff School of Theology, where its founder, Micheal Burgess, went to school. After several years, C/FOoD changed it's name to Denver Anime International during a breakup of the national anime fan club. Over the years, DAI has met in an apartment complex clubhouse, a bank's basement, a county courthouse, a public library, a role-playing game shop, and finally Gimme Anime's community room. It has run anime rooms at several local conventions and many of it's staff and members were instrumental in the founding and running of Nan Desu Kan .
