A Brief History of the Delaware Anime Society
The club was originally founded in late 2002 as a purely web-based chatting group on Yahoo. In 2004, we started having meetings at a cafe in downtown Wilmington, then meetings were moved to a gaming store and internet cafe in Claymont, DE. During this time we had our first club election when the original president expressed wishes to step down because she no longer lived in DE herself. Additionally we decided to add another chapter to the main group so as to be more accessible to the members living in Dover and below. The leaders felt a name change was in order and it was agreed to change the original name to the Delaware Anime Society, DAS for short. In 2005, our Pennsylvania affiliates requested to become the third chapter of the DAS, the DAS Kanameijis.
