August 8 Meeting

Come cool your heels with us as Ponyo the goldfish makes a splash in the Santa Clara City Library! We also have a bathing suit episode of Bottle Fairy; a water monster in Tweeny Witches, and some chilling encounters in Twelve Kingdoms, Tactics, Planetes, and Rumiko Takahashi Anthology. We apologize to fans of Kara no Kyoukai: the Garden of Sinners, but we're dropping the anime because it became too hot for our program. However, in the first volume of Faust, Del Rey Manga apparently hinted that they will start publishing English translations of The Garden of Sinners novels some time this year, so fans can keep an eye out for them!

Showings are presented in Japanese language audio with English subtitles and are suggested for ages 13 and over unless otherwise specified. Starting times are approximate: Come early! No-Name Anime meetings are presented in and co-sponsored by the Santa Clara City Central Park Library. Many thanks to the library for hosting our meetings! This month, we're in the Redwood Room. Just follow the signs!
