Upcoming Anime/Manga events in 2006
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.

More musings on Furuba
Given many factors including having two powerpoint presentations, three v. long papers totaling 55 pages, I did not spend as much time preparing this month as last month. I really wanted to develop smaller group discussions so we didn't have to shout all the time. Any ideas you have for future events, please post them. I am writing notes, and I read all the little comments you make on the neon evaluations.
