The Animatrix Network is an anime & manga fan club located in the Southwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. We usually meet on the third Saturday of each month (except when holidays or conventions coincide). The meetings are free and open to the public. Join us for a day filled with anime.

This site provides news, reviews, commentaries, and previews of the world of anime and everything it inspires, such as live-action films, comics, music, art, and other weird things to enjoy and contemplate.

The Story of Tezuka Osamu

We found this wonderful website featuring the Life and Times of Tezuka Osamu, creator of Astroboy, Kimba the White Lion, and Black Jack. He is also known as the "Godfather of Anime." The website is in English with plenty of photos and facts covering not only his illustrious career in manga and anime, but his childhood upbringing and influences upon modern day animation. It's a great site if you are doing research on him. To check it out for yourself...
There also flash games available, but those are in Japanese. With some careful scrutiny, you should be able to figure out the rules for each. The game BANG! is a card matching game.  A card is drawn for you and you must match it with one of the face down cards above. You only have a few seconds to match as many as you can. It's a little more challenging than you may think.
