OTAKUS RULE!!! Happy New Year. We have tons of things to get out to everyone so please read our entire issue and get ready for the New Year.
ANIME SPOTLIGHTS STELLVIA In 2167, an electromagnetic wave--the result of the explosion of a supernova--bathed the earth in harmful radiation. Now, 186 years later, an even more harmful "second wave" is on its way. Meanwhile, a fifteen-year-old computer genius named Shima Katase has just entered a space academy and is teetering on the brink between star pupil and class troublemaker. But as the Second Wave hurdles toward Earth, she may be a key player in minimizing its damaging effects.
Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars What if one day, you discovered that the world wasnâ€™t quite what it seemed? In the year 2070, life is rather quiet for Hajime Murata, a curious second-year student at Misumaru Middle School. Classes by day, fights with his little sister by night; nothing too exciting ever happens. Even when a strange alien ship appears over Tokyo, no one's really that shocked. After all, the government has been covering up aliens for years, right? Then, a mysterious new transfer student arrives at Misumaru, wearing an ancient school uniform. Gentle and polite, everyone considers Muryou Subaru to be a pretty nice guy - everyone, that is, except for student council vice president Kyoichi Moriguchi. When Kyoichi challenges Muryou to a fight on the school roof, Hajime rushes over just in time to see the simple schoolyard brawl turn into a startling display of psychic powers! Let your voice be heard! With all these strange events unraveling around him, Hajime is determined to figure out the truth You, your family, your friends, your pets, your about the world he thought he already knew. This enemies, your neighbors, your boss, your is his story; a tale of aliens and humans, teachers, the fishes in the deep blue sea, NEED starships and spies, and friends who are often to let your cable providers know that you more than they appear.

POETRY CORNER The First Fall
Gray clouds form over the horizon Soon it is dark, yet light is displayed Slowly at first, white petals begin to fall Gently touching your face As light as a feather Melting quickly from the heat of your body Soon. Very soon it gathers strength and purpose And then you look and see, As far as the eye can see A white blanket has covered the city. Simple Beautiful Amazing K. Johnson
