Once again, Propeller Anime presents another night with the best in Japanese animation and cuisine! On Thursday, March 19th, we'll host another exciting edition of Anime Nite Orlando!
Our main feature comes from Production I.G and is one of the most charming and whimsical films of this decade, A Letter to Momo. If you like Studio Ghibli movies, this one will be right up your alley!
Following the death of her father, who left her a letter that never got beyond a greeting, Momo struggles to come to terms with her grief and guilt, and finds herself distanced from her mother.
When the two move to a new home on a remote island in the Japanese Inland Sea, Momo befriends a young boy and his perceptive younger sister, a timid postman and three rascally goblins. With their help, Momo prepares to take the plunge into her new life on the island.

Before A Letter to Momo, we'll show the first two episodes of Kaleido Star! Sora is an acrobat from Japan who travels to America to join the world famous circus known as Kaleido Stage, but is but met with disdain, disgust, and adversity from her peers. Will she win them over and become a... Kaleido Star?!
