Live in Melbourne? February Will Be A Good Month For Anime.

In case you missed it, Madman has an awesome lineup in store for anime in February. Kicking off the month is the third Madoka Magica movie, Rebellion, which is showing on both the 1st and 2nd of the month at Cinema Nova. It looks like additional showings were also now added due to demand on 8 and 9 Feb, however only the original showings (13:00 on 1 and 2 Feb) will get the limited edition goodies (poster), which is interesting considering the new 10:45 showing on 1 Feb will now be the premier showing. Tickets are $20.

On 20 February, The Wind Rises will premiere at, you guessed it, Cinema Nova, beating out the US for release date (OK, by a day.) It opens 27 February elsewhere in Australia (and again at Cinema Nova). Tickets are $25 or $23 for Privilege Members and Concession card holders. Posters and door prizes will be distributed. Madman tells me on Twitter that this is nearly sold-out so if you plan on going, better hurry.

I have to say, the anime screenings has been one of the best parts of living in Melbourne. I’ll definitely be missing them back in Philly. Now go forth Melbourne! Get tickets while you still can!
