Manga Manga Manga! Cherry Blossom Festival Anime Marathon
Vexille SATURDAY: Washington is so weird. We welcome in spring with a kite festival and an anime marathon. Next you'll be telling us about some giant rabbit that lays eggs and might have pastel-colored fur.
The Freer Gallery will show four anime films on Saturday, including "Vexille," about a futuristic Japan that has cut itself off from the world. Tickets are free, and the films are short, fun and lovely. If you can get over the guilt of spending a beautiful spring Saturday inside.
» Freer Gallery of Art, Jefferson Drive and 12th St. NW; Sat., March 28, 11 a.m., free; 202-633-1000. (Smithsonian)
