We coordinate a variety of events throughout the year.
- Nan Desu Kan: The 20-year-old premier anime convention of the Rockies, at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center. With a total weekend attendance of nearly 30,000, NDK is one of the top ten largest anime conventions in the country.
- NDK NYE: New Year’s Eve Costume Ball, at the Denver Marriott South. NDK NYE is one of the few, if not only, nighttime New Year’s events in the Denver Metro area to welcome all ages. Features costumes, photos by CG Photography, dancing, music by NDK’s own DJ Jeremy, Video Gaming, Japanese Gaming, Table Top Gaming, Cosplay Royalty, and friends!
- NDK’s Rave2Save Japan: Special one-time event to support Japan after the Great Earthquake. Raised a combined total of $13,440 (we matched the proceeds dollar for dollar and donated them to the Japanese Red Cross).
SANA was a cooperative effort between RMAA and the Consulate General of Japan in Denver. Our longtime friends in the Japanese consulate asked us to help them answer a question: Why is anime is so popular in the United States? To explore this question, we created SANA; a one day invitation-only symposium featuring some of the most highly regarded authorities and founders in the anime industry.
