I started an Anime Club at my branch, where they pay me to watch anime with some really cool kids once a month. I'm also on the Anime Review Committee, which allows me the opportunity to recommend and review new titles for MCPL. This is pretty much a dream come true, since I've been a big anime dork for years. Since I have a lot of people ask me, "What IS anime?", I thought I would put together a short tutorial.

But no matter which class you attend, you will learn (or perhaps re-learn) the basic principles of genealogy.
Have you ever had one of those moments when you are trying to tell someone about something you just saw and you can’t remember the name of the show or possibly the actor?
