Scotland Loves Animation, the organisers behind the UK’s largest and longest-running anime film festival, are bringing their fan favourite celebration of Japanese anime to selected cinemas across the United Kingdom this year with events including next month’s We Love Anime touring programme, allowing fans to discover the range of incredible stories that anime has to offer.

After appearing at Sheffield Loves Anime over the weekend, the numerous films will be shown in Japanese with English subtitles between Saturday 4th December and Sunday 5th December at selected Picturehouse and Showcase Cinemas. So what’s in store? We’re glad you asked.

POMPO THE CINEPHILE (12A)

Pompo is a talented and gutsy producer in “Nyallywood,” the movie-making capital of the world. Although she’s known for B-movies, one day Pompo tells her movie-loving but apprehensive assistant Gene that he will direct her next script: a delicate drama about an aging and tormented creative genius, starring the legendary and Brando-esque actor Martin Braddock, and a young actress seeking her first break. But when the production heads towards chaos, can Gene rise to Pompo’s challenge, and succeed as a first-time director?

LOOKING FOR MAGICAL DOREMI (PG)

A college student losing confidence in her dream of teaching, a company employee struggling to reintegrate after working abroad, and a part-time worker trying to save for college while being tied down by a good-for-nothing boyfriend. Sora, Mire and Reika couldn’t be more different, but these three women are brought together by one thing: their love of Magical Doremi! Travelling across Japan to visit the places from the show they loved as children, the trio laugh, cry, and support one another as they realise that the messages of Doremi and friends are still with them, and can help them each take a new step forward.

OVER THE SKY (12A)

Mio has feelings for her childhood friend Arata, but can’t convey her feelings. One day, as they continue their delicate relationship, the two fight over something trivial. After letting tensions settle, Mio goes to make up with him in the pouring rain. While on her way, she gets into a traffic accident. When she regains consciousness, a mysterious and unfamiliar world appears before her eyes.
Includes a pre-recorded Q&A with director Yoshinobu Sena.

SUMMER GHOST + Q&A (CERT TBC)

Tomoya, Aoi, and Ryō are high school students who met online. Tomoya cannot live the life he envisioned for himself. Aoi cannot find her place in the world, and Ryō has his once shining future suddenly pulled away. Each has their own reason for needing to meet ‘the summer ghost’ – an urban legend of a spirit girl who appears when fireworks are set off – and one summer night, when life and death cross paths, they find her.
Includes a 32 minute pre-recorded Q&A with director Ioundraw.

As huge anime fans, we can’t wait to watch these. Both Pompo and Summer Ghost have definitely caught our attention. Which ones have piqued your interest? Let us know your thoughts in the comments and be sure to check out more anime related news here.
