Whew! We had a big movie night yesterday--nearly 60 attended Madagascar 2! Everyone agreed it was a great movie. Thanks for coming!

This month I've gone a little hog-wild with the anime budget. Yes, of course, we are still ordering a variety of family movies and new releases!

But I have recently added two classic anime series. Love Hina is a famous 'harem' anime. Keitaro, who failed his college entrance exams, becomes the manager of an all-girls' dormitory as he studies to try again next year. Most of the girls have crushes on him, a few beat him up regularly, and one of them may be his mysterious childhood friend, to whom he made a promise that they would attend Tokyo University together.

Also, after an intense Ebay struggle, we got both seasons (and the Extra Class disc)of School Rumble, the classic high school romantic comedy. The main character is a goofy girl named Tenma. She has a crush on Kurasawa, who doesn't know she exists. Meanwhile, Harima, the school delinquent dropout, has returned to school because of his crush on Tenma (who doesn't know he exists.) And so it goes...

Movie lineup change

After previewing City of Ember, I've decided to bump it off the lineup of upcoming movies in favor of a newly released animated film I just discovered.

(Not saying anything's wrong with City of Ember, the new film will just make a better all-audiences movie.)

See you Friday!
