September 12 Meeting

Let's welcome the new school year with several new series: Otoboku, Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok, and Samurai Champloo. We'll also learn more about the land of the The Twelve Kingdoms, Hachimaki's nickname in Planetes, dog behavior in Rumiko Takahashi Anthology, witch traditions in Tweeny Witches, and folklore in Tactics. Of course, the Bottle Fairies try to learn more about school as well.
