BFI Southbank Anime Weekender Details Confirmed; Includes Code Geass, Cardcaptor Sakura & Eureka Seven


Those living close to London, or wishing to spend an entire weekend watching various anime films, will be excited to learn that the BFI Southbank Cinema is hosting an ‘anime weekender‘ in May with numerous films being shown on the big cinema throughout the weekend.

The event, which takes place on Friday 18th May 2018, Saturday 19th May 2018 and Sunday 20th May 2018, will see various Anime Limited licensed films being shown including Your Name, Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution Movie 1, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Movie 1, Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms and Lu Over The Wall as well as Manga Entertainment UK’s In This Corner Of The World.

Surprisingly Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2: The Sealed Card, which acts as a conclusion to the original Cardcaptor anime series and has never seen a release within the UK, will also be shown as part of the event.It’s unclear who (or if anyone) has licensed Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2: The Sealed Card for a UK cinematic showing; but i’m guessing if a UK distribution has picked up distribution rights we will mostly likely hear about it in the coming weeks.

Screening dates and times for these film can be found below but tickets will go on sale next month.
