Anime Club
Thursday, May 19
6:00-8:00 PM
Watch the latest and greatest in Anime every month with other teens who love Anime just as much as you! On Thursday, May 19 from 6-8 PM, grab some snacks, put your feet up and relax as we watch Summer Wars on the big screen. Kenji is your typical teenage misfit. He's good at math, bad with girls, and spends most of his time hanging out in the all-powerful, online community known as OZ. His second life is the only life he has until the girl of his dreams, Natsuki, hijacks him for a starring role as a fake fiance at her family reunion. Things only get stranger from there. A late-night email containing a cryptic mathematic riddle leads to the unleashing of a rogue AI intent on using the virtual word of OZ to destroy the real world, literarily. As Armageddon looms on the horizon, Kenji and his new family set aside their differences and band together to save the worlds they inhabit in this near-perfect blend of social satire and science fiction. Recommended for ages 13 and up. Free prizes too! For more information, contact Jenny Goodemote at 585-394-1381 or
