October 10th Meeting

October brings autumn, athletics, and apparitions. While the Bottle Fairies celebrate autumn with art and athletics, Youko deals with spirits and half-beasts in The Twelve Kingdoms, Ryo Saeba is hired by a murder victim in City Hunter, the warlocks are brewing up trouble in Tweeny Witches, Loki from Ragnarok and Kantaro from Tactics are up to their supernatural escapades, and the past (or past episodes) comes back to haunt the Mini-Goddesses and characters in Samurai Champloo and Planetes.

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 Cedar Room.
