AN EXCLUSIVE 16 WEEK SERIES • WEDNESDAYS AT THE STATE THEATRE
CURATED BY THE MICHIGAN THEATER

Manga as a visual and literary medium has inspired some of the most iconic and memorable anime and live action films in key genres of the past several decades. From AKIRA to TOKYO TRIBE, the results are unique, fresh and, ultimately, concepts that are then flatteringly stolen across the globe, to take the medium to the eye-popping CGI and cinematography that is seen today.

This series is intended to help celebrate and educate audiences to not only the stellar films launched by Japanese manga, but the ready-made “storyboards” this unique source material helped deliver to how we take in film today. Manga is a genre-bending format that changes constantly and will be showcased in unique adaptations such as the hilarious THERMAE ROMAE and the heart-warming BUNNY DROP.

As there were so many films that stem from this series, consider this simply a brisk, satisfying weekly walk through highlights to encourage even more reading, more viewing and love of this cherished and beloved Japanese source medium.
