By the creators of festival darling and Reel Anime 2008’s breakaway hit, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, this is a lively action-comedy with amazingly creative visuals from studio Madhouse. Timid math genius Kenji has been asked away for a summer job with Natsuki, but his crush gets complicated when he finds out he’s to pretend to be her boyfriend! Meanwhile, what can Kenji and his new family do about the bizarre hacks in the online world of “Oz”, which are bringing real life to a halt?!
“Medusa”, a deadly virus, becomes a worldwide epidemic. In order to escape from this deadly virus, a handful of people are chosen to be put into a cold sleep, laying in a capsule housed in an ancient castle, hoping for the future cure.
Among them is teenager Kasumi who eventually awakens along with a few others to be attacked by horrifying creatures and like Sleeping Beauty, the castle is covered with thorns!
An action horror-thriller that true to form, will keep you gripped and guessing who will actually make it out alive!
A white knuckle ride to smash the senses! Red Line is the biggest racing tournament with the most deadly racers in the universe.

JP is a dare-devil reckless driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized wheels named “Trans Am.” Among the elite drivers, will the ultra hot Sonosee prove his undoing or can a high speed romance survive a mass destruction race?
One of the most exciting and visually inventive films in years, studio Madhouse have gone all out with the incredibly stylised RED LINE and it must be seen on the big screen!
