March 14th Meeting

In Japan, March 14th is White Day, a holiday on which boys give presents to girls in return for the chocolates they received on Valentine's Day. But, reciprocating can be treacherous. Several characters in D'Eon get their just desserts, the Holy Grail War rages on in Fate/Stay Night, and there are more relationship troubles in Genshiken, Rumiko Takahashi Anthology, Tactics, Planetes, and Code-E. In honor of White Day, we have a random onsen episode from Fruits Basket.

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.

Please note that next month's meeting will be held on April 4th because the library will be closed for Easter weekend on April 10th - April 12th.
