Every Thursday night at 7:00 PM in the Teen Lounge the Manga club meets to talk about--what else?--manga (well, anime too)!
We also snack--last week we chomped on Pocky, the week before Strawberry Cake Rolls--and talk about what j-pop artists we've been listening to lately. At our first meeting we watched the first two epiodes of FullMetal Alchemist, and at the second we watched the first episodes of School Rumble and Scrapped Princess.
In order to become a true otaku, we've started to compile some helpful links that we think you'd enjoy. Don't know what the heck an otaku is? Click here! Our first insallment will be about where you can watch your favorite anime online, where to go for reliable anime/manga reviews, and more!
