The Noitamina Shop in Odaiba, Japan hosts screening events of Noitamina block shows in their Cafe & Theater before the official TV airing. Screening is usually free and it was packed for recent PSYCHO-PASS screenings, reflecting the popularity of the show. Now the venue is gearing up for Katanagatari, which will start on April 11th in Japan.
Noitamina Cafe & Theater hosted the opening Katanagatari screening event with Yasuri Shichika's voice actor, Hosoya Yoshimasa on the 6th. The official Twitter account posted a photo of Hosoya at the event for people who did not win the lottery to attend.
There are total of 12 screenings planned and participants will receive a special post card per screening with designs corresponding to the episodes. Anyone who completes 12 postcards will also receive Hosoya's autograph at the end.
A special Katanagatari-themed menu is also being offered at the Cafe and participants can also enjoy it during the screening. Each order will come with a special coaster out of 4 designs below.
