April 24 anime Crayon Shin Chan: Bravo! Samurai Battle

Crayon Shin Chan: Bravo! Samurai Battle to be screened at the Japan Information and Culture Center, Embassy of Japan.

DC Anime club in Collaboration with Japan Information and Culture Center, Embassy of Japan will screen Shin Chan The Movie April 24, 2009 6:30 pm as part of inaugural showing for a new film series based on both Anime (Japanese Animation) and Manga ( Japanese Comics).

After dreaming about a beautiful lady dressed as a feudal ear princess, Shin Chan’s dog discovers an ancient box of letters while tearing up the garden. Inside, they find a note written in Shin Chan’s clumsy script, but he has no memory of writing it. Suddenly, he finds himself transported to Japan’s war-torn Warring States Period, surrounded by riots, rebellion and strife. Will Shin Chan’s crazy antics save his new samurai friends and rewrite history?

To celebrate the 10th anniversary Yoshito Usui’s popular manga and animated series, Crayon Shin-chan: Bravo! Samurai Battle is full of the great gags and silly scenarios Shin Chan fans have come to love. Winner of the prestigious Agency for Cultural Affairs’ Media Arts Festival Grand Prize for Animation, which was also awarded to Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award winning Spirited Away the year before, the surprisingly moving final scene is sure to bring tears to your eyes.

This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required.


Seating is limited and granted on a first come, first served basis.
