'Kikaider' reloads; 'Kaguya' comes in

October 16th, 2014

kikaider reloadedIt seems a bit gauche for me to be going into full chatty blogger mode when there's a tropical storm/likely Category 1 hurricane bearing down on our island home and something else I'll talk about in a moment, so here are the highlights from what was supposed to be "Otaku Film Feast-ival Part 2."

>> Kikaider Reboot had its run on Oahu extended; the movie will now be screening at Consolidated's Kahala 8 theaters for a week starting Friday. Of course, the schedule is likely to change in case Kahala Mall decides to close in advance of Ana, but for now here are Fandango's listed showtimes.

>> On Tuesday, film distributor GKIDS revealed that Studio Ghibli's latest film to be translated for U.S. audiences, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, will be opening for a limited engagement at the Kahala 8 starting Oct. 31. Exact showtimes have yet to be posted, but I'll update you on that whenever I'm able.

And now, a quick housekeeping note: This post is dedicated to the memory of my grandma, Virginia Yadao, who died Tuesday night at the age of 88. (To answer the likely follow-up question: I'm doing fine now, probably because I've had many other things on my mind, but I'm definitely bringing a pile of tissues to the funeral next week.) I'm going to be taking a few days off from blogging, but I hope to be back to write about the films of interest to otaku at the Hawaii International Film Festival by late next week. In case I take longer than that to return, here's the list of films I'm keeping an eye on so you can buy your tickets now:

Stay safe until then, folks.
