As you know, we’re huge fans of bringing anime to the big screen whenever and wherever possible here at Anime Limited, and you’ll be pleased to hear we aren’t the only ones – it’s a passion that we share with our good friends at the MCM London Comic Con.
Thanks to that shared love of big screen anime, later this month we’re bringing you an all-new version of our MCM Loves Anime event for London Comic Con, which runs from the 25th-27th May 2018.
To house our planned screenings, MCM London Comic Con is bringing a full-blown theatrical experience to the event in the form of a mobile cinema which will be housed within the event itself. We’ll be providing a couple of fantastic big-name anime films across the event weekend, so check out all of the details below!
