The British Museum announces impending anime film seasons

The British Museum, which is based in London, is planning a couple of anime-flavored film seasons that will run from the end of July right the way through until the end of September.

“MANGA TO ANIME FOR FAMILIES” (“a series of Japanese animated films for the whole family”) and “LATE NIGHT MANGA TO ANIME FILM SEASON” (“a series of feature films which have put the Japanese animated film industry on the international map”) are spotlighting some quite obscure, older classics (They Were Eleven, Phoenix 2772 – Space Firebird) along side some movies as recent as Naruto The Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow. The full schedule is as follows:

  • Naruto The Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow (July 28)
  • Porco Rosso (August 4)
  • Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind (August 11)
  • Phoenix 2772 – Space Firebird (September 7)
  • Barefoot Gen (September 13)
  • Akira (September 14)
  • They Were Eleven (September 21)
  • Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society (September 28)
  • Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (September 29)
