Same in Southampton. Subbed 2 showings on Friday 17th and then one a day through to the 23rd and Dubbed 18-23rd (unless 1 of the 2 on the Friday is supposed to be dubbed?)Main weathering with you showings are now and it’s on from 17-23 Jan each day at my showcase.
Looking forward to seeing it again. Ride Your Wave was my favourite of all the new films on at Scotland Loves Anime this year.
That's a great line-up there.Screenings from January 24 to 29 include three Psycho-Pass: Sinners of the System films, Masaaki Yuasa's Ride Your Wave, Studio Trigger's Promare, Children of the Seawww.animenewsnetwork.com
second chance I suppose
I'd love that. I think that thing was tried back in 2010 with a touring event called We Love Anime. It was never repeated, though — probably because it was just too much to organise with all the different cinemas involved. But then, cinema screenings of anime were a much rarer occurrence back then. Anime Limited have really changed the landscape now.I wonder if they have ever thought about doing a tour around the country, 2-3 days showing the films that were at the festival.
Leading both Anime Ltd and Scotland Loves Anime has left me in a good position to shed some light on that.I'd love that.

We'd really love to do it - the only hiccup is DCA has an event aimed at kids & teens at almost the same time called Discovery Film Festival so historically we've been unable to line anything up as that eats a lot of their free slots up. We try our best to slide an anime film in every year at least and they're a keen venue for main theatrical so you never know! We're good friends with the DCA so if there's any way to do it we definitely will.On this subject, actually, forgive me for pestering if you read this, @Hanners, but I've often wondered whether there could be any future in Dundee's independent DCA cinema becoming an official Scotland Loves Anime venue, too.
Anime screenings at that cinema always do really well, sometimes even selling so many advance tickets that they have to upgrade it to the bigger of the two screens. I saw the Konosuba movie there just last weekend, and it was all but completely sold out. There was an even bigger crowd (in the larger cinema #1) for Promare, and there's multiple showings of Weathering With You coming up, along with the annual visit from the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme.
At one of those previous events, I overheard a DCA staff member remark that anime always does good business there, so I couldn't help but wonder whether it could ever become one of SLA's official venues.
The Japan Foundation Programme is the name you're thinking of. I plan to watch it at Sheffield's Showroom cinema in February (Showroom also has the Kakegurui film).Ride Your Wave is coming to cinema next month as part of some Japanese season I can't recall the name of right now I know HOME here in Manchester won't be having every film that London will be showing but I hope they bring Ride Your Wave and the live action Kakegurui film here.
Booked dub of Weathering With You on Sunday
I really hope SLA happens this year. Dates are messed for so many cons and stuff that I have zero clue if Edinburgh would line up weekend 16th or 23rd October
