Back from my HK-Macau holiday – but we’ll save the travel stories for future posts. Right now, I have some news that Manila-based otaku will probably find more interesting than an extended essay on Portuguese colonial architecture and Lord Stow’s egg tarts.
As part of this year’s Eiga Sai – an annual event showcasing the work of Japanese film-makers – the Embassy of Japan and the Japan Foundation (Manila) are hosting a two-day J-Pop Anime Matsuri featuring the 2006 animated film Toki o Kakeru Shoujo.
TokiKake will be shown with English subtitles in Shangri-La Plaza Cinema 3 on the 26th (Saturday) and 27th (Sunday) of July 2008. There will be one screening on the 26th (at 6:00 PM) and two on the 27th (at 2:00 PM and at 8:00 PM). Admission is free.
