Davis Anime Club (also known as DAC) is a social club at UC Davis for UC Davis students focused on creating a strong community among people who enjoy anime and other elements of Japanese culture. DAC has meetings twice a week, where the club watches new anime as they are airing overseas as well as recent favorites. DAC enjoys its status as the largest anime club on the West Coast and is proud to host the first anime club rush week in the country. Outside of regular meetings, Davis Anime Club hosts a great deal of social events, from frequent games of espionage to its own convention, DAiCon.

Current Officers


Darker Than DAC
Are regular DAC shows a little too tame for you? Join Darker Than DAC! This sub club is the place to go if you want anime that is of good quality, but lacking in mainstream appeal or containing controversial content. If you are looking for anime that is a little darker, a little edgier, and a little more questionable than what we show in club, this is the sub club for you!

DAC Gaming
If you enjoy trading card games, board games, or tabletop RPGS this is the sub-club for you! Whether you are new, an amateur, or a veteran player, come and play games with us. You can look forward to monthly Booster Drafts, Board Game Nights and occasional Table Top RPG campaigns. There will be weekly TCG gaming times on campus.

DACosplay Team
If you are looking to unleash your creative side, this is the sub-club for you. Come create, perfect, inspire, and assist anyone in the sub-club with an interest in sewing, crafting, and designing costumes, props, and other cosplay articles. Look forward to tutorials on prop building, hand sewing, and the best tips for easy cosplay construction, as well as free time to work on your own projects with friends!

Art Team
If you like to draw, sketch, ink, or paint, this is a great place to come and learn some new techniques! Come, relax, forget your homework woes, and create for a little bit. Perfect for beginning art aficionados and pros alike. You can look forward to art swaps, competitions, and more!


The earliest records that SPAC has on file regarding the club's existence are from the 1992-93 school year. 1

DAC was founded in 1992 by John Kilpatrick and Paul Hirose. The first showing was Kaze no Tani no Nausicaa and Gundam 0083 episode 1.
