Anime and manga fanatics meet up at the Patchogue-Medford Library to share their enthusiasm for the this Japanese art form.  We talk to some of the fans about its history and design.  Anime and manga were first in Japan, and could be found on television and in comic books, respectively.  They are now in the United States and are a huge phenomenon.  What's truly different about them is the character design, and also the fact that the books read from right to left.  Fans at the library like to draw the characters and do origami as another art form.
