First Friday showing of the year


The shows listed here are what we will usually be showing every week on fridays

Except for this friday — We’ll be having a special opening showing where we will be watching anime from the Young Animator Training Project 2010:

These are four standalone short animations that the Japanese government funded to help train new animators for the industry.

We’ll also be watching the first four episodes from Carnival Phantasm, a crazy Type-Moon parody OVA — Type Moon produced Visual Novels like Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night, but you don’t need to have prior knowledge of any of their works to enjoy these parodies.

And here’s a link to an article that spoke about the Young Animator Training shorts from awhile back:


Can’t wait!
