November 14th Meeting

November is traditionally about gathering the harvest and sharing it with friends and family. Separated classmates share a journey in Twelve Kingdoms, warlocks are harvesting fairies in Tweeny Witches, a mysterious new character gathers birds in Loki, Mugen and Jin join yakuza families in Samurai Champloo, and Miyanokouji makes new friends in Otoboku. Come gather with No-Name Anime and share the viewing experience!

14:35 Abunai! Break time!
On a totally random note, Japanese has fewer consonant sounds than English, and Japanese speakers learning English often cannot distinguish between the "L" and "R" sounds or the "B" and "V" sounds. Therefore, the English words, "love" and "rub", would sound the same to the Japanese. If you'd like to learn more about Japanese, browse section 495.6 on the second floor of the library.
