ANIME NITE ORLANDO: All Hail Mamoru Hosoda! (8/20)

Our annual post-AFO edition of Anime Nite Orlando is upon us. On Thursday, August 20th, enjoy the best in Japanese animation and cuisine at Bikkuri Lounge. (1919 E. Colonial Dr. Orlando, FL)

We have a night dedicated to acclaimed director, Mamoru Hosoda! Hail the new King of Anime! We'll be showing two movies of his that we have never shown before at Bikkuri Lounge: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and One Piece: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island! It's going to be one hell of a night!

When 17-year-old Makoto Konno gains the ability to, quite literally, "leap" backwards through time, she immediately sets about improving her grades and preventing personal mishaps. However, she soon realizes that changing the past isn't as simple as it seems, and eventually, will have to rely on her new powers to shape the future of herself and her friends. - From ANN Encyclopedia 

This ain't your daddy's One Piece! Or even your big brother's! This is a dark and twisted take on the popular take on the legendary Shonen Jump series and some have even speculated that this movie is a metaphor for Mamoru Hosoda's time at Studio Ghibli when he suppose to direct Howl's Moving Castle. Find out for yourself!
