July film " Shinchan : Battle of the Warring States "
(Director: Keiichi Hara, Original Manga: Yoshihito Usui, 2002, 95min. Rating:PG )

Won several awards including Best Animation Awards at 2002 Japan Media Arts Festival.
It is the 10th film based on the popular comedy manga and anime series Crayon Shin-chan.
One morning Shinnosuke and his parents have the exact same dream. Shinnosuke becomes entranced with the “pretty lady” from that dream, his dog Shiro also seems to have had the same dream and begins digging a hole in the yard.

Shinnosuke discovers a wooden box in the hole. There’s a letter inside written in his own handwriting that says he’s in the second year of the Tensho era (1574). Even though he has no recollection of the letter, while standing at the bottom of the hole, he unwittingly travels through time to an unfamiliar place. All seems happy ending, but sad destiny hits Matabe and Princess Ren…

Presented by the Consulate-General of Japan, The University of Auckland, The University of Waikato, The Japan Foundation.
