JICC Hosts "The World of Anime Fandom" and "Honey Clover"

There's always something brewing at the Japan Information and Culture Center. Since the first time I discovered them, they have never disappointed with their continuous flow of live action, anime, and inspired exhibits.

To celebrate their one-year anniversary of JICC's monthly anime series offerings, the DC Anime Club will give a presentation on "The World of Anime Fandom," including the cosplay phenomenon. As a special treat, you can win a prize by attending in costume. The event takes place on Friday, January 16th at 6:30 p.m.

JICC will also be screening, in association with DC Anime Club, "Honey and Clover" on January 23rd. Based on the best-selling manga series by Chika Umino, "Honey and Clover" is the touching story of five art school friends struggling to navigate the tricky transition from student to adult. Their ideas of life and love are forever changed when they befriend the talented young Hagumi, whose very presence seems to complicate their quest for personal and professional fulfillment. Honey and Clover received the Kodansha Manga Award in 2003 and is immensely popular in Japan.

These events are free, but requires your RSVP to Jiccrsvpwinter09@embjapan.org. For more information, visit JICC.
