Anime Night: Gun x Sword
June 1, 2011
For ages 13 to 18 years
Join NYPL at Nite this June for Gun x Sword
There's a claw-fisted, fiance-murdering, older-brother-corrupting, genocidal maniac terrorizing the planet of endless illusion, and only Van, a tight-lipped loner in a jet black tuxedo, can bring the scoundrel to justice. Armed with his shape-shifting sword, a mechanized suit of armor sent from the heavens, and a fierce hunger for condiments, Van hunts the villain who murdered his one true love with dogged determination. Riding shotgun on his quest is Wendy Garret, a pretty young spitfire who'll do anything to reunite with her long lost brother. Together, they seek vengeance in a lawless, futuristic frontier, draining bottles of ketchup and righting wrongs wherever heroes are needed. With any luck, they'll find the men they seek before the sun sets on civilization once and for all.
What is "anime" you ask? Well it's short for Japanese "animation." This cartoon style has been around as early 1917 and exploded in Japan sometime in the 1960s. The world outside of Japan started embracing anime in the 1980s and it has only grown in popularity with each passing year.
