Are you ready for another edition of Anime Addicts? It's a new month, so we had a new anime screening: this time it was all about Kaleido Star — the story of Sora Naegino, a young girl who dreams of joining the circus.
All of our regulars were in attendance, including Anthony, Matt, Erin, and Bobby. For the month of August, we were joined be a new anime fan who spent her day off coming all the way from the Bronx to watch anime with us. Let's meet her now!
NYPL: What is your name?
What is your age?
Where do you work? Do you go to school? Where?
I work at Mid-Manhattan Library and I attend Monroe College in the Bronx.
How did you hear about the Anime Night monthly film series?
I've seen the flyers around and, obviously, I work here.
What are a few of your favorite anime titles?
Blue Exorcist, Hellsing, and Ghost Stories.
Do you read manga, too?
Yes. I like Cirque Du Freak and Alice in the Country of Hearts.
What is it about manga and anime that you like so much?
The different storylines, the drawings. I love Japanese culture and have always loved animation [since I] was a kid. So it carried over as I became an adult.
Any closing thoughts?
I'll be returning for next month's anime! ^_^
With over 20 people joining us last night, Anime Night has become one of the hottest NYPL at Nite programs at the Library! Shanta and our regulars will be joining us this fall as we screen Disgaea in September, Last Exile in October, Chobits in November, and Samurai Champloo in December. We hope that you can join us, too!
