Propeller Anime is going to turn Bikkuri Lounge upside down with our September 17th edition of Anime Nite Orlando! We picked out a few great things that we think you all will like.
We'll be showing Patema Inverted, directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura (Time of Eve), as our main feature! It's a fantastic, coming of age film if you have not seen it yet. Plus, we'll be showing some great animated shorts! Including one that won one of Japan's highest honors.
In the Patema Inverted's introduction, an experiment in the near future to attempt to harness the Earth's gravity for energy results in the devastation of much of the surface as nearly everyone and everything is thrown into a reverse gravity field and sent flying from the Earth.
Some years later, Patema is a respected teenage woman that lives in a society that resides underground. Inspired by her friend Lagos, who had left many years before, she explores the tunnels. One day, she falls into a pit that leads her to a new world where everything is upside down. Or is she upside down? This event unravels the dark history between the two worlds and the chaos that will follow.
That's not all! We also have this amazing anthology of four amazing animated shorts called Short Peace, featuring the award winning Combustible from Katsuhiro Otomo. (AKIRA)
And we'll be opening with with another short film, Cencoroll, which was nearly singlehandedly written, designed, directed, and animated by manga author Atsuya Uki.
We will also have prize raffle! We have stuff to give away!
