Anime Watch

Preparations for Anime Halloween have begun! I hope many of our anime fans and otaku can make it again.

We have added new anime this year, as always. Chrome-shelled Regios is new this year, and we have replaced our worn-out copy of Negima, as well as added the second season! (Title is "Negima?") Season 5 of Hetalia will be hitting the shelf tonight, and thanks to a generous donation, Season 2 of Code Geass will also be added before long. We have also ordered a DVD containing two short OVAs, Coffee Samurai and Hoshizora Kiseki. The first is the strange tale of an ancient samurai reincarnated as a coffee vending machine. The second is the story of a boy with uncanny knowledge of the stars.

Keep watching with us! And get your cosplay ready for October 25th!

Back to the Eighties!

Rev up your radical Delorean and prepare to go into the past as we present a totally tubular time-travel trilogy from the days when New Wave was gnarly and everyone was wondering where the beef was! We go Back to the Eighties on August 1! Movies will be shown at 3, 5 and 7 pm. Don't miss it, or you will be declared grody to the max! (NOTE: Date edited to avoid Fair Week!)

Spring at last!

Well, let's hope Winter is finally over.

Our spring Anime even was once again loads of fun. We have added exciting new titles like Natsume's Book of Friends and Penguindrum this year.

We've also been working hard on our Spring movie lineup. Hope to see you on Fridays!

Too cold for anything but MOVIES!

Hey, hope you're getting through this cold winter okay! We are buying plenty of exciting new movies, so remember to get your library on! Those of you following popular series will be excited by this month's release of Downton Abbey Season 4, and Game of Thrones Season 3!

April 1st Amnesty Day is approaching fast--as long as your items have been returned, we will erase all Seymour library fines for anyone who comes in! Time to get those killer movie late fees wiped out.

In anime, be ready for the fast-approaching Anime Afternoon, on April 5th this year! It's earlier than usual due to schedule conflicts. We are adding new titles this year, as always--here in Seymour, we have Natsume's Book of Friends awaiting cataloging, and Penguindrum on order. In the library system, since the last event, libraries have added Nura Rise of the Yokai Clan and Hakuoki.

Anime Halloween was great!

Just want to say that our annual Anime Halloween was fantastic, with over 43 people attending, lots of great shows chosen, and tons of fun! Special thanks to those of you who brought treats and helped with the cleanup, and a big thanks to everybody who came, for helping to make our anime events ever more awesome!

Anime n Stuff!

This Friday is our second outdoor movie night, hope you can make it! The Friday Night Movie lineup is almost set through October. Included is a screening of the documentary, Green Fire.

And of course, Anime Halloween is coming up fast! Preparations and permission requests are under way.

We have added lots of exciting anime titles to the shelves this year:

Soul Eater: The hugely popular shonen anime about kids learning to fight at a school run by the Grim Reaper himself.

Steins: Gate: A time-traveling tale of suspense and conspiracy.

Sound of the Sky: A sweet post-apocalyptic tale of a girl who joins the army to learn to play the bugle.

Clannad: The classic school life anime.

Persona 4: a video-game based title about kids traveling into a strange techy world to battle their alternate selves

Canaan: An action thriller about the results of a secret medical experiment gone wrong.

My Bride is a Mermaid: Slapstick comedy about a boy who is rescued by a mermaid, and must marry her, against the wishes of her mobster family.

Squid Girl: A cute comedy about a squid who comes ashore to take over the world and teach humanity to respect the ocean.

Genshiken: We have replaced our Season 1 with a box set containing both seasons and the OVAs.

Black Cat: A classic donated by a patron. I haven't watched it, so I can't talk about it. :D

Anime fans will also want to have a look at Appleton's exciting new acquisitions, Angel Beats and Un-Go.

Summer is coming!

Summer is coming! That means summer hours, the summer reading program, and the ever popular OUTDOOR movie nights! (They have not yet been scheduled, we will let you know when. I can tell you, though, that we will be showing the new Oz movie and an older favorite about boys who dig holes...) Summer also means there are less new releases to choose from for the Friday Movie nights, so feel free to make suggestions. This July we are pleased to present our very first SING-ALONG movie night on July 12th! Bring your Munchkins and beware of falling houses! Woohoo!
