Teen Anime Club: Princess Jellyfish

Wednesday, April 9th

3:00 to 5:00 PM

Anime Club Princess JellyfishThis month we'll be watching Princess Jellyfish (not rated). 

From the director of Durarara!! comes a thoughtful comedy on learning to look below the surface and finding the courage to rock the status quo. Plain, timid, and obsessed with jellyfish, Tsukimi is a far cry from a princess. Her life as a jobless illustrator comes complete with roommates who are hopeless social rejects. These wallflowers run a tight, nun-like ship, but their no-men-allowed bubble is unwittingly burst after Tsukimi brings home a rescued sea jelly and a beauty queen - who’s actually a guy. When threat of losing their cozy convent inspires this glamour boy to turn the neurotic entourage into a portrait of success, will Tsukimi take her chance to bloom or will she end up a hot mess?

Anime Club meets almost every month to watch shows, read manga, and have a good time. If you're an anime fan or just getting started on your first series, check it out! This event is aimed at teens ages 13+.

FCBD14rectangle_2014Are you ready for Free Comic Book Day? As the name implies, this is a day when comic book stores and libraries around the world give away comics to people of all ages. At the Puyallup Public Library, we’ll be giving out comics at the front of the library, from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm.

Supplies are limited, so visit us early for the best selection.

This year, we’re celebrating the art of cosplay. Cosplay, short for costume play, is the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game. If you’ve ever been to a convention like Emerald City Comic Con, SakuraCon, or PAX, then you’ve probably seen cosplayers! Throughout Free Comic Book Day, we will hold several programs talking about and celebrating cosplay, including showing cosplay documentary, holding an information panel, and hosting a cosplay dance in the evening.
