What if you could stop the world? What if you had the ability to freeze time for everyone else, but had the power to stay in motion yourself? You could catch that bus. Actually, come to think of it, you could ignore the bus altogether and just walk to work, knowing that you could still reach your destination with plenty of time to spare. Actually, wait a moment – why are you going to work? That nine o’clock clock-in doesn’t have to happen until you feel like it. You could vote yourself a day off. A week off. A month? How long could you take being alone in a frozen world.
But... what if... you found out you were not alone after all...? Continue Reading

Grotesque monsters known as Impurities reside in Magano, a realm parallel to the present day. Exorcists purify these evil apparitions to protect the people. Rokuro Enmadou is opposed to becoming an exorcist, even though he has the talent to be one, but an oracle gives him the title of "Twin Star Exorcist," the name bestowed upon married exorcists.
Benio Adashino, the girl who receives the title along with Rokuro, is determined to exorcise all the Impurities in the world. The two find themselves wrapped up in more and more battles together as the Twin Star Exorcists, and as Rokuro watches Benio fight with the wish to become stronger, he's forced to face the weakness he's lived with ever since the Hiinatsuki Tragedy. Now that his eyes are turned toward the battle again, thanks to Benio, Rokuro makes up his mind to fight as an exorcist once more, and the Twin Star Exorcists take on the most powerful of Impurities together!

Synopsis: "The time is UC 1926. The Imperial Army's 203rd Air Mage Battalion led by Major Tanya Degurechaff has won the battle to the south against the Republic's stragglers. They expected to be given a vacation after returning victorious, but instead receive special orders from Staff HQ as soon as they get home. They are told that there were signs of a large-scale deployment near the Empire-Federation border.
Faced with the prospect of a new major enemy, the desperate Empire fans the flame of war.
Meanwhile, an international volunteer army spearheaded by the Commonwealth set foot in Federation territory. As they say, the enemy of an enemy is your friend. They suffer through misfortune purely out of national interest, and among them is a young girl.
She is Warrant Officer Mary Sue, and she takes up arms hoping to bring the Empire, who killed her father, to justice."
You can watch an official preview of the film (published to promote the recent screenings in the U.S.) below
So there you have it folks! A UK Premiere screening taking place at MCM London Comic Con!

The temple is on fire. The warlord Nobunaga makes his last stand against the henchmen of a traitorous underling. Hearing someone kicking open a side-door, three attacking samurai rush in to execute an escapee, only to face a terrifying, ash-smeared demon.
“In person they had never seen before a shadow so tall, a man so dark. Nobunaga’s bodyguard stood over them like an adult over children, their helmets barely reaching his chest... [He] clutched a samurai’s sword, its blade already lacquered in blood.”
This is Yasuke, the African samurai, introduced in a new book by Thomas Lockley and Geoffrey Girard, ahead of a mooted movie adaptation starring Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman (pictured). Continue Reading
