Calling all Japanese film lovers... Bakuman. Movie is coming to the big screens in NZ for the first time!

Based on the mega hit Japanese manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, the same creative team responsible for Death Note, comes the live-action film adaptation of Bakuman. The movie is written and directed by Hitoshi Ohne (Moteki), starring Takeru Satoh as Moritaka Mashiro and Ryunosuke Kamiki as Akito Takagi.

Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high student, forgets his notebook in class. His classmate Akito Takagi, notes Mashiro's drawings in it and asks him to become a manga artist to his stories. Mashiro declines. Takagi incites Mashiro to meet with Miho Azuki, Mashiro's crush, and tells her the two plan to become mangakas (manga artists). In response, Azuki reveals her plans to be a seiyuu (voice actress). Mashiro proposes to her that they should both marry when Azuki becomes a voice actress for the anime adaptation of their manga. The two then start creating their manga, under the pen name Muto Ashirogi, in hopes of getting serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump.

Strictly limited season only in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Tickets on sale from Mon 16 May, book now to grab your ticket before it's all gone!
