February 13th Meeting

Valentine's Day is coming up, and the Bottle Fairies learn about making chocolate. Although the Card Captor Sakura anime didn't have a Valentine's Day episode, Sakura is the personification of everything sweet and pink. Meanwhile, Youko learns about the relationship that destroyed one of the Twelve Kingdoms, Tweeny Witch Arusu explores a relationship with her mirror, Loki and Kantaro have girl problems, and Half Section fights to make the office safe for romance.

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.
