Anime Night: Toradora!
Tuesday, December 2nd, 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Community Room
Grades 6-12
Registration appreciated

Winter is on its way and that means it’s time to (re)watch Toradora! We won’t have time to watch the whole series, but come meet up with other otaku and get your (re)watch started.

It’s Ryuji’s first day as a junior in high school and it seems as if things are looking up. He gets to sit in between his only friend, Yusaku, and, more importantly, the girl he’s secretly crushing on, Minori Kushieda. But just when he thinks the stars are aligned in his favor, he unwittingly crosses the most feared girl in school, Taiga Aisaku, making her onto his arch enemy. To top it off, Taiga has moved in right next door to Ryuji and happens to be Minori’s best friend! Can this school year possibly get any worse?!
