January 10th Meeting

It's a new year! It's time to start a new series called Planetes, deal with a new plot complication in Le Chevalier D'Eon, and meet new friends and enemies in Code-E, Fate/Stay Night, and Genshiken. The lessons of Human Crossing might help achieve some New Year resolutions. If the economic downturn is on your mind, then the Rumiko Takahashi Anthology episode may help you laugh it away, and the sheer entertainment of Ghost in the Shell and Tactics may help take your mind off of it. So, come join us for the first No-Name Anime meeting of 2009!

As always, many thanks to the Santa Clara City Library for hosting our meetings. This month, we're in the Cedar Room. Just follow the signs.
