After a run in Glasgow the Scotland Loves Anime Festival will then come to Edinburgh’s Filmhouse Cinema for a week of the newest releases, reworked classics and a world premiere later in October.
At 6.15 this evening two films are being shown on the big screen :
Ancient Magnus Bride

Ancient Magus Bride (Episodes 1-3)
Norihiro Naganuma • Japan 2017 • 1h6m • Digital • Japanese with English subtitles • 15
Hatori Chise has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love. Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers, obtains her through a slave auction, Chise’s life will never be the same again.

Children of Ether
LeSean Thomas • USA 2017 • 14m • Digital • 15
An exclusive first look at Children of Ether, an original Crunchyroll production. Created by LeSean Thomas (Cannon Busters), Children of Ether boasts an impressive staff, including character designer Hiroshi Shimizu (Michiko & Hatchin), storyboard director Shingo Natsume (One Punch Man), and animator Mitsuo Iso (Neon Genesis Evangelion).

This is the eighth year of Japanese anime and this year’s festival will put important industry figures in the spotlight such as director Masaaki Yuasa with his new film Night is Short, Walk on Girl being shown alongside his classic Mind Game.
Night is short, Walk on Girl
