Anime Night: Sgt. Frog
July 6, 2011
For ages 13 to 18 years
Join NYPL at Nite this July for Sgt. Frog
Keroro is Sergeant Frog - the leader of a platoon of warriors sent to conquer planet Earth. But when the amphibious invaders discovered how much humans enjoy dissecting their comrades, the troops were scattered, the mission was aborted, and Keroro was abandoned. Now, this once proud soldier spends more time wielding a vacuum than he does the weapons of war. It's a far cry from the glory of battle, but hey, at least he's got his own room. And though the invasion may have slowed to a hop, Sergeant Frog still occasionally yearns to overcome his karaoke addiction and reassemble his troops. Watch out world, the frogs are taking over.
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.
