 SHEPHERDSVILLE—It’s the annual dance that makes everyone over the age of 13 feel welcome.

The 9th annual Otaku Ball, hosted by the Bullitt County Public Library, brought together over 50 anime fans for a pre-Valentine’s party.

Participants were encouraged to cosplay (dressing up as a character) and awards were given out for the favorites. William Huey and Kirsten Kirchner were awarded the coveted Emperor and Empress titles.
