Anime Club
Thursday, April 21
6:00-8:00 PM
Canandaigua YMCA
Say goodbye to the Y as Wood Library holds its last Anime Club meeting on Thursday, April 21 from 6:00-8:00 PM. We will be watching Bamboo Blade. It didn’t take long for pint-sized Tamaki’s lightning reflexes to catch the eye of starving Kendo instructor Toraji. This second-rate sensei is an embarrassment to the sport, and his Kendo club is running out of members. His only hope for redemption – and a full belly – is to get Tamaki to sign-on as his star pupil. Unfortunately, this sword-wielding prodigy is a serious anime addict! Snacks provided. Win prizes too! Recommended for ages 13 and up. The Canandaigua YMCA is located at 32 N. Main St. Contact Jenny Goodemote at 394-1381 or for more information.
