It's an Imaishi/Nakashima-thon to celebrate PROMARE's Blu-ray/DVD launch
In just a little over a week, fans of director Hiroyuki Imaishi and writer Kazuki Nakashima's work will be able to soak in some of their biggest hits all night long. A special all-night event for Trigger's PROMARE anime film is coming to TOHO Cinemas Shinjuku in Tokyo on January 31, and it will include screenings of Kill la Kill and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
In addition to the showing of PROMARE—which celebrates the movie's February 5 launch on Blu-ray/DVD—the first three episodes of Kill la Kill will be screened along with 2008's Gurren Lagann The Movie: Childhood's End and 2009's Gurren Lagann The Movie: The Lights in the Sky are Stars.
Hiroyuki Imaishi, Kazuki Nakashima, and Shigeto Koyama will be on hand for a staff talk show along with Trigger creative producer Hiromi Wakabayashi, and the version of PROMARE on display will be a little different, including all the video, color, and sound adjustments made for home video. Tickets for the event are ¥4,500 ($41) and go on sale online and at the theater on January 25.
