AADL-GT: Ann Arbor District Library Game Tournaments

No, not the man, the game.

Boom! The Superbowl is coming to the great lake state, and the library is getting in the football spirit. Warm up for the big game by displaying your virtual gridiron skills in the AADL MaddenBowl tournaments. What team will you choose to lead to victory? Get on The Bus with the Steelers and Big Ben? Maybe pick the Seahawks with the power running of Shaun Alexander. Or just pick the always cheesy speed QBs Vick and Culpepper.

A Touch of (anime/manga) Evil

Anime Villain #4

February's animanga club is all about VILLAINS! Post to vote for your favorite villain in anime and we'll watch a clip featuring the winner of this unpopularity contest.

Animanga club for teens (grades 6-12) will meet at the Malletts Creek branch of the library on Tuesday, February 7 from 7-8:30 PM in program room A-B. There will be snacks, prizes for those who blog, anime clips to watch, manga and anime to discuss, and so much more.

So...who's evil, nasty, ill-intentioned, or just plain annoying?
Also--Guess the villain in the picture..

Upcoming Anime/Manga events in 2006

Fruits Basket: Tohru Freaks
Tohru Freaking Out. Nuff said.

My ears are ringing a bit, but I had the best time tonight at MC Otakon! Thanks to everyone who came, I hope to see you at future events, including the GT Tournament this weekend where I will be helping with food. Here in some sort of order are the manga/anime related events for 2006. They include Animanga Club events, a new Cos-Play DDR program and the Inu Yasha special program. (see full event schedule after the break)

MC Otakon: Furuba

Fruits Basket: Tohru Freaks
Tohru Freaking Out. Nuff said.

Ohayo gozaimasu!
MC Otakon is back for another night of discussion, quizes, my home-made(okay, out of the box) brownies and Anime viewing. All the free books have been taken, but if you've read the series you are welcome to drop in to Malletts Creek on Wednesday night at 7pm. Be advised.. like AADL GT, I have a tendency to run overtime to watch an extra episode. And I prefer the sub, not the dub, much to certain fans' dismay.

Okay now to discussion of the books.. this week we're talking about 4-6. Some of my favorite moments after the break.

Fruits Basket Discussion Thread

In honor of the Fruits Basket discussion at MC Otakon, I want to share some Chinese Zodiac resources. Find out about your sign!

I also want to note that as of now, this Wednesday's program is full.

The Myth of Dynamite: Exposed!

RPS is an international sporting organization built around a contest that is centuries old. In Japan, it's called Jan Ken Pon; in Germany, Schnick Schnack Schnuck; and in parts of the US it's known as Roshambo. Rock Paper Scissors is a simple game, but when played in a competitive series, it becomes an intense, high-stakes contest of psychology, intuition, and nerves of steel. Next week, we've got Chris Berggren, Bronze Medalist from the 2004 Rock Paper Scissors World Championships, to tell his story, share strategies, and assist at the first ever AADL Rock Paper Scissors Tournament, July 14th, 2:00 PM, at the Downtown Library.
