55th anniversary will feature the return of classics from across the decades
EJ Anime Theater in Shinjuku is prepping for a three-week marathon of some of TMS's most iconic titles. Screenings will include selections of Lupin the 3rd and Detective Conan films and episodes, the Lupin vs. Conan special, Sherlock Hound, Magic Kaito 1412, and Panda! Go, Panda! A trio of Osamu Dezaki works — Aim for the Ace!, Ashita no Joe 2, and Gamba no Bouken — will be the subject of their own evening of viewing.
Fans of the company's shoujo selections will also have screenings to look forward to. Two separate events will celebrate the respective 25th anniversaries of Magic Knights Rayearth and Saint Tail, each featuring a selection of popular episodes followed by an interview with the main cast.
The TMS Entertainment Summer Festival at EJ Anime Theater runs from July 19 to August 8. A gallery and collab café are also in the works.
