BAAMF! Bay Area Anime and Manga Fans

I am sure there must be a large group of MALers from the Bay Area, so I created this place where we can all converge and chat. I personally have moved back to the Bay Area recently after a long time away, so I am curious about what anime clubs exist here and any other fun anime or manga related events that may be going on. It is also fun to talk with other folks in the area who like anime :)

We are lucky to be in the Bay Area, with easy access to anime goods in Japantown, and 2 local Kinokuniya stores, not to mention the other bay area anime stores! Viz is also headquartered here.

Bay Area anime convention or event discussions also welcomed! (Fanime, YaoiCon, the Cherry Blossom festival etc.)
