Time for another potluck full of food, fun and anime! :)
For ongoing series: we're still watching Penguin Drum, which simply defies description but is wonderfully insane fun, and Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume's Book of Friends), about a boy who inherits a book full of spirit names, and the adventures he has with it. I also encourage everyone to bring your favorite anime, old or new, to share!
The usual things to remember: we can't watch a whole series in a few hours, so we'll probably only watch a few episodes of any one thing, depending on what people want. So make sure to speak up if you like something! And please feel free to bring drinks or snacks to share with your fellow fans, if you want--women cannot live by anime alone, after all. :D
The meetup is at my place again from 3 pm to 8-10 pm or so (or even later)--I have enough room for a small horde, at least. Cushy seating is limited, I'm afraid--I have padded folding chairs, but if you have any foldable/squishable seating that you would prefer to sit on, feel free to bring it. And if anyone needs directions, just send me an e-mail and I'll let you know exactly how to find me. We are further south again this time, so my apologies to any of our more northerly folk; we do have people willing to carpool, however, so don't be afraid to ask. And as always, if anyone wants to offer alternate locations, I'm always open to new options...
That's it for now--I hope to see you all there!
(My place is a little tricky to find so here are some directions: from the 167 freeway, take the Kent exit and get on Central Ave. From Central Ave, you'll want to turn and go up Willis St, which will turn into Canyon Dr within a few blocks. Follow Canyon Dr S up the hill, to 252nd St--it's a left hand turn next to an Assembly church. Then follow 252nd all the way to the end (it's a dead-end street) and turn into the very last condo complex on the road. Voila! As several members have discovered, do NOT trust Google maps--it will lead you astray. If you get lost, feel free to call me; my number is[masked]-9472.)
