For June, we are meeting on the first Saturday, June 2, just a few days after FanimeCon. In a full-length Full Metal Alchemist movie, Edward and Alphonse Elric will investigate a new kind of alchemy. Plus, don't miss our continuing shows! As always, our showings are free, and there is no need to sign-up, RSVP or agree to a nefarious contract. Please join us.
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 in their community rooms. We are usually in Cedar, but on some months, we might be in Redwood instead. To find us, just follow the signs!

Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos
(Subtitled, Alchemical Fantasy Adventure)
Edward is given the seemingly simple mission to recapture a renegade alchemist who has broken out of prison, and he travels to Table City to start the search. Before he even arrives within the city walls, however, the situation has completely transformed into a complicated web of connections. There is the alchemist, Julia (the girl he will rescue), the human chimeras persuing them, the bat militia perhaps after Julia, and the government of the city that has been oppressing the Milos -- the people of the valley -- for generations. As they are drawn in, Edward and Al learn from Julia that the Milos and Table City have long histories of seeking the Philosopher's Stone, an alchemical artifact that can grant immortality -- at the cost of other's lives. Edward and Al eventually realize they have arrived at a time when these competing factions are on the verge of obtaining a Philosopher's Stone, despite the perils that its power will bring.
