Teen Anime Night 2/11/15

Anime Kiba copyTeens grades 7-12 are welcome to attend our monthly anime night.

It's time for some anime classics! For many of you, these are the animes that first got you hooked. They're popular enough titles that your parents may actually even try to pronounce their names. Although they're mainstream now, these shows are all still great! Also, if you've never played Yu-gi-oh before, I'll be bringing a few starter packs for you to test out!

As always, we'll be drinking tea, playing games, drawing anime characters, and eating ramen!

Wednesday, February 11 • 6-8pm Carman Community Room 
Free, no registration is required. (Teens in grades 7-12 only)
