Posted in anime, Crafts, Games & Gaming, Uncategorized with tags on May 7, 2017 by encinolibraryteens

Besides our fun experiences with the Oculus Rift this month, Encino Teens also did a lot of other cool activities worth sharing. We had a particularly game-centric month in teen club with our awesome teens bringing in their own card games to share. We played both One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Betrayal at House on the Hill. We also got a little crafty this month making our own fiesta float and painting light switch plates.Ā April was also a super sugary month in the snacks department with munchies including brownies, cookies, candy, and cupcakes. Anime club featured epic discussions on subbed vs. dubbed, as well as viewing of five different anime series throughout the month. Come join us in May for more entertaining times in the Encino Teen Room! šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚Ā 

Encino Teens February Fun!

Encino Teens had a really fun February that involved using our WiiU for all types of gaming, making pizza cake pops, drawing tons of cool anime and manga-inspired works, and constructing duck tape roses for our valentines. We munched our way through way too much heart-shaped candy, played a laugh-out-loud game of Superfight, and feltĀ inner peace after doing someĀ zentangle drawing. Our Anime Club finished the first season of Nanbaka (which we all highly recommend!), with some other anime episodes peppered in. Ā Join us for another fun-filled month in March featuring a special Teen Tech Week edition teen time and more Anime Club every Monday! *By Julia, your Encino Teen Librarian*

Girls’ Generation


When I was first introduced to kpop, I was introduced to Girlā€™s Generation, a nine member girl group. As one of the top girl groups, their songs are not only widely popular in Korea, but they are also well known in many parts of Asia. Ā Their official fan group calls themselves “sones” and many of the members keep contact with their growing fans with Instagram, Weibo, Twitter, and more. Their debut song, ā€œInto the New Worldā€ has very inspirational and motivating beats and garnered a lot of attention. The very first song that got me interested in the group was ā€œGenieā€, which sports a sailor concept and is part of one of their most successful albums, Run Devil Run.

What color CD to scratch designs into??


Wait! It’s Anime Club… that means onigiri (Japanese rice balls)!!! Forget the CDs.


Hanging out at the laptops while eating onigiri and snacking on some Japanese candy.


Second round for onigiri! It’s been decided unanimously that sushi rice is better than jasmine rice when making onigiri.


Done eating and using the laptops? Then it’s time for table tennis!

Overall a fun night at Mission Library!

IGO Anime Art Competition

IGO OTAKU cracks

So before school ended last school year, Igo library had anĀ  AnimeĀ  Art Competition that occurred concomitantly with the Annual IgoĀ  Anime Festival. The winner was actually yours truly , (by the way, I’d like to thank my parents for giving birth to me, my art teachers for building my hubris through flattery, and the public education system for supplying said art teachers) and my artwork is attached here:

Imperial (small_

I hadn’t drawn this specifically for the purpose of entering the contest, it was just on hand when I saw the advertisement, and I thought, what the heck.

I thought it was a small competition with only a couple of entries at first, but wow was the competition fierce. There were 48 entries from nine different high schools across San Antonio. The other contestants were truly talented; it must have been a hard decision for the judges.

Here are a couple of the many other entries:


ThisĀ artistĀ is phenomenal. He entered several drawings, but I have a penchant for this one in particular. It’s very dark and edgy, with an almost macabre feel. I love the contrast between dark and light, I think adding color would actually lessen the wow factor of this piece.



This next artist is actually a part of IGO Otaku:


And a couple more,






Yep. Young people these days are so talented, especially on topics they are passionate about.

The prize was a wonderful and well appreciated surprise too.
TheĀ bundle of goodies was stacked neatly in a pile, with twine wrapping it in place.

It had a DVD of Cardcaptors Sakura on the bottom, then a manga, a Barnes and Nobles gift card, a box of pocky, and a small hand made bag.

That’s enough incentive to compete next year.
