Location: West Suburbs of Chicago
Time and Place: tba
A brief description: First and foremost this is a manga and anime discussion group based out of the West suburbs of Chicago. The group name just happens to be from an anime that I'm currently watching. The name was so great that I couldn't not borrow it. Anyways, my goal with this group is to have a monthly meetup to discuss some manga... more or less a manga book club. At some later date we may expand to having some anime showings as well and have a group to go to events like ACen. I would prefer that people be 21+ and no less than 18.
