The line-up for this year’s Fanomenon Anime Day includes two new action-packed and visually spectacular features – the first Dragonball Z feature film for 17 years, Battle of Gods, and a prequel to the Appleseed movie from the original’s director. Short Peace is a unique collection of anime shorts from different directors including the legendary Katsuhiro Ôtomo (Akira). The award-winning Giovanni’s Island is a moving story of childhood innocence amid political conflict, based on real events. The finale of the Anime Day is a double bill of two masterpieces, both screening on new digital cinema prints: Ghost in the Shell and Grave of the Fireflies.
