Next Club Meeting: June 24, 2023, at the Fountaindale Public Library in Bolingbrook from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

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 Simpsons Tribute to Hayao Miyazaki

Springfield's turning Japanese as the show's animators pay homage to a living legend. And if we have to accept the retirement of the man who gave us Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away (among a host of other works of classic animation) after The Wind Rises, at least we can take some comfort in the fact that it's leading to something like this -- frankly, we found it kind of moving -- appearing on prime-time American TV. 

Play spot-the-reference in the video below.
