Welcome to JAC-Dan!

Welcome to the official website for Northumbria Students Unions’ Japanese Animation and Culture Society!

JAC-Dan meets weekly to socialise, watch anime, East Asian movies and shows, play video games and learn about Japanese popular culture. We aim to create a friendly community and bring together those who have a shared interest in everything Japanese, from cosplay and manga to anime and video games. The JAC-Dan community represents a diverse range of subcultures and fandoms (from furries to film lovers). Our hope is that our members will enjoy themselves whilst also having the opportunity to discover something new, learn about all aspects of Japanese culture and expand their cultural knowledge and experiences.

We are a multi-award winning society who pride themselves on the friendly and inclusive community we provide. Whether you’re looking to talk about your favourite anime, get cosplay tips, or simply meet a diverse and interesting group of people, we have something to offer.

But don’t just take our word for it- see what our members have to say!
