Returning to Edinburgh and Glasgow from this week, Scotland Loves Anime has established itself as one of the most popular film festivals around – and we have tickets to be won to two new films.
Running from 11th-13th October at the GFT in Glasgow and 14th – 20th October at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh, fans will have a chance to see new and old films alongside special events with anime experts.
Among the films being shown are Masayuki Miyaji’s FUSE – Memoirs of the Hunter Girl, which follows the story of Hamaji, a young huntress who lives alone on a mountainside. Following the death of her grandfather, she receives a letter summoning her to the city of Edo, where her brother lives. Upon arriving, she becomes involved in hunting deadly creatures terrorising the city – half-human, half-dogs called Fuse, who consume human souls.
Yasuhiro Yoshiura’s Patema Inverted – following a catastrophic attempt to harness alternative power sources, Patema’s community were driven to settle in a dark, cramped network of tunnels below ground. She roams them by torchlight, dreaming of adventures on the surface. She gets more adventure than she bargained for when she sneaks into a forbidden area of the settlement that takes her above ground…
