Anime Club @ Fairmount St. Library

November 3, 2008

Yeah, we’ll probably talk about cool anime films.  Yeah, we’ll probably recap the Teen Anime Fest.  Yeah, we’ll probably discuss your favorite graphic novels.  Yeah, I’m probably going to make you participate in one of those dorky/superfun icebreaker games.  Yeah, we’ll probably watch a couple of episodes of a popular anime series.  Yeah, it’s probably gonna be the same old stuff and the same people. 

Oh wait.

We’re going to make awesome key chains with your favorite anime characters on them!  That’s right!  How could I forget?  Just exactly how are we going to do that, you ask?  Well, you’ll have to come and find out for yourself.  The action begins around 5:30 at the Fairmount St. Library.  Hope you can make it to Anime Club tomorrow night!
