Anime fans in Aberystwyth will be pleased to hear about the local leg of the Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival. It's been running since 2010 and is set to return to the Aberystwyth Arts Centre on Saturday October 20th 2018. Attendees are in for a treat, they've got screenings of some truly delightful films, including Fireworks, Lu Over the Wall and Mirai.

We highly recommend Lu Over the Wall a quirky tail from Masaaki Yuasa (you can read our review here), along with Mirai from popular anime director Mamoru Hosoda, the screening is a week after it's run at the BFI London Film Festival, but also before it get a national screening. So you'll be able to see it before most people!

They'll also be showing Studio Ghibli's When Marnie Was There, something that you should really catch on a big screen. Other titles include Psychic School Wars and Attack on Titan: Roar of Awakening.

As always with events like this we suggest booking early to avoid disappointment, tickets aren't on sale yet for Aberystwyth, but will be soon, so please keep a look out!

Anime fans in Scotland hoping to get their anime fix this October are in for a treat as Scotland Loves Anime 2018 Film is set to return in Glasgow from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th October and Edinburgh from Monday 15th to Sunday 21st October 2018.

The successful film festival has got a selection of treats for all tastes, a lot of them are either UK premieres some are EU Premieres. If you like some shonen action you can't go wrong with the latest My Hero Academia: The Two Heroes movie. If you want something fun for the family Mamouru Hosoda's latest film Mirai fits the bill (they've got other Hosoda screenings planned, but details TBC). Are you after something a bit different and quirky? Then go for Penguin Highway (EU Premiere), which is based on the novel by Tomihiko Morimi, who also wrote The Eccentric Family and Night is Short, Walk on Girl.

We're also very interested in I Want to Eat Your Pancreas, a story of a boy who discovers that his classmate is terminally ill with pancreatic disease. This is another UK Premiere.

They've got so much good stuff, looking for something old school and cyber punk? Then they've also got a special screening of Cyber City Oedo 808. The cult classic introduced many people to anime due to a screening on Channel 4 in the 90s. The cinema website states that this version will be the original Japanese dubbed with English subtitles, however Scotland Loves Animation have confirmed on Twitter it will be the dubbed version with extra profanity.

Oh also don't forget that they've got a special screening of B: The Beginning with a special Q+A the series director Kazuto Nakazawa too.
