Live talk and screening event will cover 50 years of SF history including material from Anno's personal collection
It's a well known fact that when Hideaki Anno is not swimming in a huge pool of money like Scrooge McDuck or not working on the 4th Evangelion reboot film, the director likes to spend his liesure time as a colossal fan of Japanese science fiction / tokusatsu TV shows.
Anno is bringing his vast knowledge of tokusatsu to a special live-talk and screening event that will be held at 7:00 PM JST at the Shinjuku Wald 9 theater in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan, on March 17, 2017.
The event, entitled "Hideaki Anno's Special Private Collection TV Tokusatsu Hero (Theme Song, etc.) Historical Gathering", will take a look at the opening and ending themes of some 50 works of the tokusatsu genre that span a time period from the 1960's to the 2010's. Anno will be joined on the discussion panel by tokusatsu expert and anime scholar, Ryūsuke Hikawa.
Tickets to the event go on sale on March 03, 2017, and they cost 2500 yen ($22.29 US).
Eat your hearts out, Ultra-fans.
