Omigoodness! Well, I hosted my NINTH anime festival, at the library where I work, earlier this afternoon...in fact, it ended about 30 minutes ago.
I survived the onslaught of the 17 teenagers who attended, okay...it was actually 16 teenagers and one somewhat older librarian but sixteen teenagers in a single room is still scary!
However, the kids all enjoyed themselves and here's what I showed:
At the previous festival someone made a request for RUROUNI KENSHIN, so I brought in my copy of season one, which is all that I currently own of the series. I chose a random episode and it was the timid sumo wrestler episode, not one of my favorites but it's still a nice episode.
Then I popped in episode 20 of TRIGUN, one of the Gung-ho Guns episodes.
Then we watched episode one of COMIC PARTY!, Which is amusing and presents an uncannily accurate picture of the convention going experience.
The festivities ended with a couple episodes of CROMARTIE HIGH SCHOOL, which are short in length and very weird but I like the series.
Oh yes, I also wore my festive shirt celebrating the 80s anime, BASTARD! It's black with a giant eyeball and a pic of Dark Schneider on the front.
All in all it was a well-received program and I got still got paid to sit on my arse and watch anime for 2 hours.
Not sure when the next festival will be...perhaps during a school break this fall.
