Manga of the Moment~

Hotel Africa by Hee Jung Park

This manga is a little different then some of MCPL’s other titles. It’s set in Utah and is about a boy named Elvis Spillane who is trying to break into the film industry, along with his friends Ed and July. The life of a twentysomething slacker has its ups and downs, but that’s nothing new to Elvis, whose unusual childhood was spent growing up in rural Utah, raised by his mother and grandmother in a bed-and-breakfast called Hotel Africa. While spending time with his friends, Elvis reflects on his childhood memories: the travelers who passed through the hotel, the ways they touched his life, and how he might have touched theirs. – For Older Teens 16+

This manga is well drawn and has an interesting story line. If you would like to try something different, check out this title.

Check it out!

The movie will be in movies for two nights only~ Island 16 in Holtsville is the only theater in our area that will show the movie.

Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody synopsis: After unidentified beings known as “Blanks” start popping up, they are soon followed by a Soul Reaper named Senna who makes them disappear. Puzzled by these unknown beings and the even more mysterious girl, Ichigo and Rukia set out to learn more, but uncover an evil plot when a menacing clan tries to kidnap Senna. Banished from the Soul Society long ago, the clan’s leader is sending the World of the Living and the Soul Society on a collision course, and Senna seems to be the key to his diabolical plot for revenge. Can Ichigo and his fellow Soul Reapers save the two worlds from annihilation?

This event is English dubbed.

Coming Soon

Hey Guys,
I just ordered the xxxholic first and second DVD collections and Hell Girl volumes 1-6 DVDs.

Also on order is the Cantarella manga title.

From birth, Cesare Borgia is surrounded by hellish shadows that threaten to consume him. Damned by his own father, hated by his closest brother, separated from the sister who loves him, and driven by the demons of Hell itself, he sets out on a quest for power that threatens to set the world of Renaissance Italy ablaze.)

As soon as they come in, I will let you guys know! 🙂

Iron Man

Today Iron Man is coming out. The movie looks good and the pics I have seen look impressive, let’s just hope it doesn’t forget about the storyline when it has such great special fx.

If you don’t know what Iron Man is about, here’s a quick summary, real quick:

Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, who I might add- was born on Long Island. Tony is smart, super rich and has a huge business empire. His parents are dead (Marvel, like Disney, has lots of orphan characters). Tony gets hurt during a super experimental experiment and has the Iron Man suit made up after he gets hurt. His new suit gives him super human strength and superhero capabilities.

The Iron Man suit looks awesome btw.

Don’t forget we have the Iron Man comics at the library which would be cool to read before you catch the movie (or after).
