Have to leave the TV on for the dog these days, and it's resulted in my discovering some fun stuff on PBS. We have added a couple of Odd Squad DVDs to the children's section, and Stephen Hawking's Genius.
By the way, when I was at Kitsune Kon this year, we played a group game of the visual novel, Long Live the Queen. I'd love to do something like that for the library, but with a title more geared to younger children. (Not all that complicated mood calculation and class scheduling!) Anyone have a good suggestion?

Sad to say goodbye to two awesome legends this month, David Bowie (Labyrinth, Zoolander) and Alan Rickman (Harry Potter, Galaxy Quest, Die Hard.)
With a new year, as always, comes a new budget! So far we have replaced several damaged and broken items from last year and caught up on some new releases. Do you have suggestions for what you would like us to add this year? Or movies you would like us to screen on Friday Night Movie nights? (Please don't suggest old Disney classics...everybody loves them, but nobody shows up to watch them here.)
New anime this year: readers of the Library Wars manga will be excited to know we will soon be adding the anime series! (Called Library War. They lost the 's' somewhere.) If it's listed in the catalog, it will be added to the shelves later this week (as soon as I finish watching it, ha ha, ha....) I will also soon be ordering Shangri-La, the series that was such a hit at the last Anime Halloween.

Well, Anime Halloween will be on actual Halloween, for the first time in years! Come all dressed up in costume for a free Seroogy bar!
Despite my worry that I had added too much anime to the collection this year, a great sale on Amazon resulted in my buying two more titles. Girls und Panzer, the story of high school girls whose after school hobby is tank fighting! And the re-release of the ever popular GHOST STORIES! That's right, you'll be able to check it out again. We have also added Soul Eater NOT, the moe-girls Soul-Eater spin-off.
For next year, I have my eye on Season 2 of Free and the re-release of Noein.
Hope to see you there! Keep watching!

We have also ordered the soon-to-be-released fangirl favorite swimming anime, 'Free!'

Our library has also added some exciting new titles!
Chi's Sweet Home: The cutest anime in history, about a lost kitten and her new family. (Still awaiting cataloging)
Silver Spoon: A troubled young man enrolls as a Dairy farming student at an agricultural high school, in order to escape problems at home. He is in for a rude awakening as he comes to terms with the facts of farm life.
Accel World: A nerdy kid with great video games skills is recruited as a champion by a beautiful girl, to take part in a virtual reality fighting game that is more real than it seems.
Baka & Test: In a school where students use their grades to compete in digital combat, the top students get all the best equipment, and the not-so-bright Class F has to struggle along with broken tables, old textbooks, and no respect. Can they fight their way to a better classroom?
Space Dandy: Dandy is a space bounty hunter who makes his space living by discovering new kinds of space alien and bringing them in for registration. With his faithful space sidekick (a talking vacuum cleaner) and a Betelguesean space cat, he travels space in his space ship looking for new space life and ogling buxom space waitresses at his favorite space restaurant. (Still waiting for cataloging!)

Another year has started, a new movie budget, and MORE ANIME! We have added a complete box set of Excel Saga and will be adding Space Dandy and Accel World in time. I am also hoping to squeeze Silver Spoon into the budget. See you at the movies!
