Anime Night: Kaleido Star


August 3, 2011
For ages 13 to 18 years

Join NYPL at Nite this August for Kaleido Star

The acclaimed director of Sailor Moon and Princess Tutu brings fans the breathtakingly beautiful story of a young girl determined to follow her dreams all the way to the top! Sora - an amazingly talented acrobat from Japan - left her friends and family behind and moved to California to audition for a role in Kaleido Stage! This world-famous troop of performers is known for their death-defying stunts and spectacularly sparkling costumes! More than anything else, Sora wants to be a part of the glamour and glitz, but first she'll have to prove that she was born to perform - no matter how dangerous the next stunt may be! Prepare to be held on the edge of your seat by Kaleido Star, a highly recommend series that Advanced Anime calls the "show that dreams are made of".

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.
