"Cal Animage" is a loosely organized association of international anime clubs. The first chapter,
Cal Animage Alpha, was founded at UC Berkeley in 1989. Our club, Cal Animage Beta, was established
in 1990 as the second chapter. In 1992, Cal Animage chapters from multiple universities, including
UCSD, co-sponsored the first Anime Expo.
Although anime distribution has increased in the United States, making it easier to purchase and watch shows, Cal Animage Beta continues to host weekly anime showings as well as bi-weekly off campus or on campus social events. Some of our events include Karaoke, Club Dinner Socials, and Tea Party, which is an anime marathon and potluck. Our largest event of the year is Animefest, an on campus convention that includes gaming, performances, Artist Alley, panels, and more!
