Gintama Home Video Premiere | Saturday, March 17th | 12:30p | Hawthorne 1
Aliens known as the Amanto have invaded Earth and taken over feudal Japan. In this strange new era, a man named Gintoki Sakata with the heart of a samurai, and the odd company he keeps, have found a way to stay self-employed. They take on odd jobs, everything from finding lost kittens to saving the world. But the jobs rarely go as planned and never pay enough to cover their pain—or their rent.

Hand Shakers Home Video Premiere | Sunday, March 18th | 11:30a | Hawthorne 1
High school student and expert mechanic Tazuna is about to embark on an adventure that he can’t handle alone. When he comes in contact with a mysterious girl, the two find themselves in the world of Ziggurat where the power of joined psyches drives a race to challenge God himself. Caught in the midst of a gripping fight, they’ll have no choice but to get along…without letting go.

See you there!
