So, you lads couldn’t get tickets either, huh? Guess there’s nothing left for us to do but juice up on Evlend, stay up all night and listen to myself babble like a broken record.
More details have emerged about the all-night screening of Studio Rikka films scheduled to take place at Theatre Shinjuku on Saturday, 28 March 2009. In addition to the first three acts of Eve no Jikan (Time of Eve, 2008-ongoing), the screening will feature the earlier Yoshiura Yasuhiro films Kikumana (2001), Mizu no Kotoba (Aquatic Language, 2002) and Pale Cocoon (2006). If I’m reading the event listing correctly (someone better in JP than I am help me out here!), it appears that an advance sale of the third Eve no Jikan DVD will also take place at the same event.
The doors will open at a quarter to midnight and the event is expected to begin when the clock strikes twelve – or, this being Japan, when the digital display flashes 24:00:00. Tickets will be sold through Ticket Pia at JPY2,800 each.
I will be in Tokyo on the 28th, although I’m not optimistic about my chances of landing a ticket since I’m scheduled to arrive just a few days before the event; by that time they’ll probably be sold out. Naturally, I plan to try my luck anyway.
Anyone out there knows how to purchase a pass from Ticket Pia (and if there’s an outlet somewhere in the Ueno area)? I’ve heard their tickets can be purchased through the Loppi machines in Lawson stores, but I’m not sure about this.
Note: Tip of the hat to icie for first mentioning this event back in January.
