Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva to be Shown on the Sony Movie Channel Next Week


The Late Night Anime segment continues on the Sony Movie Channel (Sly 323) next week with none other than LEVEL-5’s Professor Layton’s feature-length instalment, Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva.

Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva contains the iconic animation and voice cast of the Nintendo DS Game and throws them into a feature length movie whereby Layton and Luke must unravel the secrets hidden within the theatre. If you are a fan of the games then it’s definitely worth watching, as it has all the atmosphere of the game but in a feature length movie.

Despite being released under the  ‘Manga UK’ logo Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva was actually one of KAZE’s first titles released in the UK under  partnership with Manga Entertainment UK, but even more interesting is to see the Sony Movie Channel broadcast the film at such an ungodly hour, especially considering that the film is only rated a U.

The film is being shown on Tuesday 22nd October at 12:45am, but in reality it could have been shown ‘much earlier’ and got a wider viewing audience, however for those interested the film is available on DVD and Blu-ray within the UK.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Sony Movie Channel (Sky 323) is a free-to-view channel, meaning as long as you have a basic Sky Subscription you will be able to watch it.
