SCI-FI-LONDON: MANGA All-Nighter Announced

This year celebrates the 20th year of MANGA, the distributor who first bought Japanese Anime to the UK, and as such SCI-FI-LONDON’s first all nighter has been anounced as a MANGA special! Along with the usual goodie bags, freebies, ice cream and red bull which you would normally expect at these events there is an epic list of films to be screened throughout the night. The films showing are:

Akira HD
A secret military project endangers Neo-Tokyo when it turns a biker gang member into a rampaging psionic psychopath that only two kids and a group of psionics can stop.

Eden of the East: Air Communication
On November 22nd, 2010, ten missiles strike Japan. Known as “Careless Monday,” this attack does not result in any apparent victims, and is soon forgotten by almost everyone. Then, three months later… Saki Morimi, a young woman currently in Washington D.C. on her graduation trip, is saved by a mysterious man, who has lost his memory, and has nothing except for a gun and a phone with 8.2 BILLION yen in digital cash.

Eden of the East the Movie I: The King of Eden
The story continues where it left off from the Eden of the East TV series, and brings Morimi Saki back to the USA in order to find Takizawa Akira. The other Selecao however are actively moving to take part in the game, and a few in particular are making dangerous moves in order to eliminate Takizawa or move towards their picture of a better Japan.

2001 NIGHTs: TO
REDLINE
(Japan 2009, 101 mins, Dir: Takeshi Koike)
It is the biggest and most dangerous racing game of the universe and it’s only held once every 5 years. Over the top action and luscious colour, it is pure adrenaline from start to finish. Whenever you think it can’t get any louder or faster, it will prove you wrong.

Sounds like a great night to me, and to finish it off with the 3D epic “2001 Nights to Redline” should guarentee that everyone is still awake at the end of it!

The MANGA all night will be at the Apollo Cinema in Picadilli Circus on April 30. It all kicks off at 23.45 and will finish in the early hours of the morning! Tickets cost £35. Make sure to get plenty of sleep the day before!!
