Are you interested in anime or manga? You may want to consider the Japanese Club, they meet in room ll-312 every Wednesday from 3:30-4:30. Focusing on being inclusive while learning about Japanese culture is paramount.

“We are one of the top teams as far as making the charity money this year,” club sponsor Thor Kjeseth said. “The money goes towards the things we do during the year like the extreme fest.”

For students that are interesting in trying new things or meeting new people, the Japanese Club is an excellent fit. You don’t have to have any experience or knowledge about Japanese culture at all, the club is open to everyone as long as they have an open mind.

Due to Covid-19, there have been some club activities that have been suggested but can’t be done due to limits and restrictions. Some fun activities they enjoy doing involve going downtown, such as traveling up to the Buddhist temple, museums, and restaurants.

While not going as a group, many members of the Japanese Club love to go to conventions that are held downtown, such as the Denver Pop-Culture Con.

“So lots of the kids, some of the best, are like the most extravagant cosplayers and our school is part of that club,” Kjseth said.

It is a year-long club, so if you missed the first day feel free to join still and meet all these new amazing kids.
