Saturday July 9 is Manga & Anime Day at Niles Public Library!
Our Anime & Manga Club meets at noon to watch Sgt. Frog and share original manga art. Discuss new releases and old favorites.
Stick around for Real Japan for Anime Fans program with local author James Kennedy. Learn about the Hadaka Matsuri, a Buddhist festival in which thousands of nearly-naked men fight for holy sticks. Come along on the pilgrimage to the 88 temples of Shikoku. Explore the neon streets of Tokyo and tour the temples of Kyoto. Discover how the real Japan ties into its pop culture—for instance, did you know the bathhouse of the gods from Miyazaki’s Spirited Away is based on a real bathhouse?
