Premieres

Fullmetal Alchemist Original: Blu-ray Premiere

Friday, July 24 | 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM | Video 1 – HD (BCC Hall A) | Episodes 1-4
 
 

Synopsis:

An essential addition to any anime collection, Fullmetal Alchemist recounts the compelling story of the Elric brothers: Two young alchemists who sacrificed innocence and flesh when they ignored the laws of Alchemy in an attempt to resurrect their mother. The horrors they recklessly unleash mark the beginning of an adventure that leads an unforgettable cast of characters from darkness to light and back again.

In an era of war and corruption, State Alchemist Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse desperately search for the Philosopher’s Stone. The legendary artifact is their last hope to restore what they’ve lost – but how far will they go to get it? From the ashes of their childhood, Edward and Alphonse quickly rise to fame within the ranks of the military, realizing along the way that the power to create is only ever a breath away from the power to destroy. And whether they’re up against monsters, madmen, or military officials, the bond these brothers share will be the greatest weapon they have in the fight for their lives.

Tokyo Ghoul Season 1: English Dub Premiere

 
Saturday, July 25 | 7:00 PM  | Video 1 – HD (BCC Hall A) | Episodes 1-4
 
 

Season Synopsis:

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans — yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.
