Animania at Parklands-Turner!

April ushered in the first gathering of the Parklands-Turner anime club, the Animaniacs! To celebrate, we have compiled three popular anime titles, that also have their own manga series as well. If you're new to the world of Japanese animation, have no fear! Anime is simply hand-written or computer-drawn animation that originates from Japan, and manga is the print, comic book style version of those stories. Read about these titles, and who knows, maybe you'll find a favorite of your own!
