July film: "Bakuman"
(Director: Hitoshi Ohne, 2014, 120min. Rating: PG, Cast: Takeru Sato, Ryunosuke Kamiki, Shota Sometani)

Drawing manga can be the death of you. Moritaka Mashiro (Takeru Sato) is well aware of this, having witnessed his manga artist uncle work himself to death. He is determined to avoid the path his uncle walked, despite being a gifted illustrator, and spends his days drifting in mediocrity instead. One day, class genius and aspiring manga writer Akito (Ryunosuke Kamiki) asks Moritaka if he wants team up as manga artists.

The pair tirelessly work day and night to realise their dream of creating a manga series for Shonen Jump Weekly—a considerable milestone for every manga artist. With no shortage of up-and-coming rivals, will they ever realise their dream?!

Presented by the Consulate-General of Japan, the University of Auckland, Massey University and the Japan Foundation.
