Who is the DAS?
The DAS stands for the Delaware Anime Society. We are a group of individuals with interests in Japanese anime (animation), manga (comics), music, and pop culture. We hold meetings via three chapters across Delaware and Philadelphia areas. These chapters are DAS Dover, DAS Wilmington, and DAS West Chester.

Are you associated with Delaware Anime Fans (DAF)?
Currently, we are not associated with DAF. They are an independent club. For more information about them go to http://www.delawareanimefans.com.

What do you think of other anime clubs?
We recognize with the growing fandom of anime, there are many anime clubs throughout the Northeastern United States, and we encourage our members to attend as many anime clubs as they wish. We also support Anime Clubs Unite, an organization that connects anime clubs from all over the world.

What do you do?
Each chapter holds free monthly showings of Japanese animation. Often times, we also include video gaming, raffles, and other events during the meetings.

Are the showings free? Do I have to be a member?
Showings at all chapters are free and open to the public.

What is the age range?
Members of all ages are welcome at our meetings. However, it is important to note that anime has genre types that span across many age ranges, and there is material out there that may not be appropriate for a younger audience. Please contact your chapter's president for specific ratings at your next meeting.

What is your policy on "hentai” or “adult” material?
The DAS makes it a rule never to show hentai or x-rated material.

What is your rating policy?
All Ages (A) – Nothing objectional
Teenagers (T) - May contain bloody violence, bad language, nudity
Mature (M) - May contain sex, drugs, and extreme graphic violence
Hentai (H) – Adults Only! Contains explicit sexual content. Never shown at DAS meetings or events.

Is the anime you show subbed or dubbed?
We show both subtitled and dubbed anime at our meetings based upon members' requests.

What is a Bootleg? Do you have a policy regarding Bootlegs?
Bootleg is a term that usually refers to an item or goods that are illegally sold and distributed. In other words, bootleggers make money off something they never really owned. The DAS does not show bootlegs (unlicensed copies of titles licensed in the USA), nor do we support the selling or distribution of such items.

Do you have a mailing list?
The club has condensed 3 mailing lists into one so that members of all chapters can all be together and talk more easily. There is also an announcements only mailing list where only meeting and event announcements are sent. Members should strongly consider joining one or more of the mailing lists to keep updated on upcoming events and meeting changes.
