Mumbai Anime Club - Media Mentions

It's been more than two years now since the inception of Mumbai Anime Club (MAC). During this time, we've held over 15 MAC meets, attended the Washoku Food Festival, were a part of the Japan-Indo Creative Contents Forum (JICC) and more recently, participated in the highly successful Cool Japan! Festival.

Our efforts, it seems, have not gone unnoticed by the media. As it turns out, Mumbai Anime Club and/or its members have been covered by the press on many occasions. This article aims to list them all down, for your pleasurable read.

The Anime invasion has begun! Muahahaa!!

Media Company: Indian Express (Pune)

The Indian Express is a national newspaper and being covered in it certainly brings forth promises of not only aspiring Anime/Manga fan clubs in India, but the growth and awareness of Anime in general. The article speaks about how different fan clubs have formed in several major cities and conduct various activities and meets to keep the enthusiasm intact. Credits to Reetam Majumder and Daniel Victor for making this article possible.

If you find any article that speaks about MAC (that hasn't already been posted), do let us know. We'll add it to the list ^_^
