The Saga of Tanya the Evil (anime)

Community Room
Fri, 08/31/2018 - 7:00pm to 8:45pm

In the sloping towers of modern Tokyo resides a man who is absolutely content with his job. He fires people with a smile, but that's fine - the principles of free market economics play no favorites, and there's nothing wrong with taking pleasure in the operation of a finely tuned machine. Until one day, an utterly foolish former employee pushes him onto the subway tracks, flagrantly disregarding the principles of rational self-interest. Time stops, and our hero is presented with a question - why does he not believe in God? His answer to that question will see him spun off into another reality, reborn as Tanya Degurechaff in a world at war. As Tanya, our hero will rise up the military ranks, gaining honor and prestige in a battle between blunt pragmatism and God himself.

The Hawthorne Anime Club was created to give people a place to gather, watch, and talk about Japanese animation. Each meeting will include screenings of everything from classic titles to new releases. The club is aimed primarily at teens and adults. Films are shown in Japanese with English subtitles. Refreshments served at each meeting.

Call ahead to reserve your spot! People under age 16 who are interested in attending are required to have a parent present or to have a signed parental permission slip.
