* For those of you thinking that anime is all about hello kitty ... you've been missing out on all of the other aspects of it! It includes everything from Ghost in the Shell and Akira (the most requested titles over here) to the crazy series Elfen Lied. Yes, Miyazaki is anime - yes, Dragonball Z is anime. It's a general category encompassing a genre. When you hear the word 'animated' do you always think of Scooby Doo? We recommend checking out this event. Even if you just show up to see people's Cosplay outfits.
