Live action Night
I would like to propose a live action night to take place some time in Januarry (Eg before uni starts).
The playlist requirements would be simple. All content must be either Japanese or about Anime fandom. Ideally the Live action shows should be based on anime or manga, if not then they should be origional (Compared to western films) and unreleased in Australia.
I propose the following to make up part of the playlist, which I can bring.
Movie: Hinokino (2005). Director: Takahiko Akiyama. Cast: Masatoshi Nakamura, Kanata Hongo, Mikako Tabe, Riho Makise.
Synopsis: Satoru, a heartbroken boy who has withdrawn into his room for a year, uses a remote-controlled robot called "hinokio" to take his first cautious, fearful step into the outside world again. He goes to school and finds fellowship. Then through an encounter with a girl called Jun, he reconnects with humanity and feels once again the sensation of warm human touch (Eg gantz second season*). But Jun deeply desires to meet directly with the real Satoru, instead of meeting him through the robot. Satoru, who also wants to experience the world directly activates the robots sensation mode, exposing himself to mortal threat. Jun risks all in an attempt to rescue him.
