Exciting new movies!

I have to say, this is a great time to be scheduling the Friday Night movies. So many top-level new releases that we're scheduled all the way to Halloween! I keep a couple of emergency fall-back movies in the drawer in case of a lack of good new releases, but have not had to trot any of them out for some time. (Justin and the Knights of Valor finally got used when the BFG DVD release date was delayed for the second time.) If you are curious, the emergency movies we are holding in reserve are Beyond Beyond and April & the Extraordinary World.

More exciting new anime titles, both dubbed in English! We have GATE, the story of the military action that takes place when a portal to a fantasy world opens, and a unit of the Japanese Defense Force is sent to investigate. Also new is the animated version of School-Live! We have also just added Volume 7 of the manga. This is the story of a club that lives at their school and never leaves...for very good reasons.

Sadly, we have had a couple of brand new movie titles stolen off the shelf recently. It's sad to think someone would steal from the whole community like that. When it happens, I have the choice of spending movie budget money to replace the stolen items (instead of adding even more new titles) and feeling as if I am subsidizing the thief's collection, or just ignoring the theft and not having those stolen movies available for the rest of our community. We wil have to take some new anti-theft measures if this continues.

Anime Afternoon schedule change!

This year's Anime Afternoon will be on April 29th!

I hope you all can make it. I am looking forward to seeing you there!

We have new and upcoming additions to our anime collection!

On the shelves now is the complete Allison & Lillia, a lighthearted adventure series. In Part One, rookie pilot Allison and her sharpshooter friend Will discover a secret that ends a centuries-old war, and take part in helping to build a peaceful future. In Part Two, Allison's daughter Lillia and her friend Treize work to protect that peace from those who prefer the profits of war. (subtitled)

Waiting in the wings to be added to the catalog is the zany school comedy Nichijou! If you love Azumanga Daioh and Lucky Star, be prepared for the next level of total insanity, where you never know what epic battles will rage outside the window when you are sent to stand in the hallway, what lengths your classmate will go to to prevent anyone seeing her naughty drawings, or what strange special features a bratty eight-year-old inventor will build into your robotic friend next.(subtitled)

Coming up on pre-order:

Steins: Gate, the movie! If you have not watched the epic time-travel series yet, now is a good time, because there's a follow-up movie coming to your library. (English dubbed)

Kokoro Connect: What happens when a group of high school students mysteriously starts switching bodies?(English dubbed)

Is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon? (17+) An eager young adventurer looking for love sets out to rescue helpless maidens in distress, only to discover that he is the one in need of rescue!(English dubbed)

Spirited Away, 15 years old!

I was very excited when I received an e-mail saying that Spirited Away was going to be appearing in movie theaters to celebrate its 15-year anniversary! But then I clicked the link to buy tickets, and the nearest theater was near Chicago.

But we have our own theater! So, for those of you who love the story of Chihiro (and those who have never seen it yet) we will have a special showing here at the library on Monday, December 5th, at 7 pm. Hope to see you there!
