Nishikaze (nee-she-ka-zay) is Japanese for west wind, a common occurrence here in Southern Alberta. Nishikaze is a local gathering for fans of Japanese anime, manga, and related media such as video games. While we showcase anime, we strive to expand our event into other areas of interest like live-action movies and Asian culture. Our annual event is an occasion where fans can show their passion and appreciation of the hobby; to meet other like-minded people; to have open discussions about popular topics and to just have a good ol’ time!
