February 14th Meeting

Happy Valentine's Day! Anime fans aren't known for being good with relationships, and our anime episodes have several non-relationships to demonstrate that: the Major and Kuze from Ghost in the Shell, Shirou and Saber from Fate/Stay Night, Madarame and Kasukabe from Genshiken, Ai Tanabe and Hachimaki from Planetes, and Ebihara and Kotaro from Code-E. We're going to skip ahead to a particularly unromantic episode of Rumiko Takahashi Anthology, explore the love between a man and his pet reptile in Pet Shop of Horrors, solve a mystery dealing with women in Tactics, and watch Teillagory end his relationship with our heroes in Le Chevalier D'Eon. Come see broken hearts and awkward relationships on this Valentine's Day at No-Name Anime!

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