'Scotland Loves Anime 2016' Line-Up Announced

Scotland Loves Anime (SLA) is one of the hot tickets for fans of Japanese animation in the UK. Every year it allows audiences the chance to see a wide range of anime on the big screen, and includes a number of premieres and exclusives. This year's line-up is no different.

This year includes an early chance to see the new Makoto Shinkai film Your Name, as well as a retrospective of the director's past films. The festival will also screen the videogame spin-off CG feature Kingslaive: Final Fantasy XV, and Studio 4C's Harmony, and there will be a unique chance to see a collection of Production I.G shorts. Lost 70's cult classic Belladonna Of Sadness and 40's propaganda piece Momotaro, Sacred Sailors will also be screened.  And once again, the event will contain a top secret mystery film, which won't be revealed until the screening.
