Last night, there were 17 people who came out for Mid-Manhattan Library's monthly Anime Night screening. This month, we watched popular game-turned-anime Disgaea. For September's patron feature, we caught up with Marcus. A man of few words, Marcus was nice enough to chat with the Library about why he likes anime and give us a few of his favorite titles. Let's hear what he has to say!
NYPL: What is your name and your age?
How many Anime Nights would you say you have been to? Your favorite?
Around 12, and Bamboo Blade was my favorite.
What do you like so much about anime? What is it about it that appeals to you?
The unique art style, and that there's a new episode almost every week.
How did you hear about our screenings at Mid-Manhattan Library?
I saw the flyer.
What are a few of your favorite anime titles?
FairyTale, Nichijou, and Ao No Exorcist.
Do you read manga, too? Why or why not?
Yes, because it's more bloody and it tends not to end abruptly or change the endings.
What is it about manga and anime that you like so much?
The many different genres and the lack of random discontinuity.
Do you think anime is more for boys, girls, or a combination? Why do you think so?
A combination of both since it covers many genres.
Any closing thoughts?
