PREMIERES

Strike Witches Movie Dub Premiere | Saturday, Sept 3 | 10:30a – 12:30p | HGB Room 006

The Neuroi, a large and dangerous alien race, still roam parts of the world leaving destruction in their path. The Strike Witches “a group of girls with extraordinary powers, formidable weapons, and advanced aircraft appendages” have made great strides against the Neuroi. But the war against them still rages on. Yoshika Miyafuji was once a member of the Strike Witches and sacrificed the ability to use her powers in a major fight against the Neuroi. Unable to fight, she now wishes to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor and continue to help people. When new soldier and witch Shizuka Hattori comes to escort her to a prestigious European medical school, their journey becomes far more dangerous than originally planned. The Neuroi have changed, and their abilities are far stronger than before. Can the Strike Witches comes together once again to face their enemy? Or will they be able to without Yoshika’s abilities?

Ergo Proxy Blu-ray Premiere | Sunday, Sept 4 | 10:30a – 12:00p | HBG Room 217

Something is wrong in the perfect domed city of Romdo. Between the sudden rash of murders and a virus affecting all AutoReivs cyborg companions and workers who assist the people of Romdo all is not right in their dome home. Detective Re-l Meyer begins to investigate, seeking answers to the weird occurrences that are happening more and more around her. But when she begins to uncover the truth, her world is turned upside down.

First, the strange immigrant Vincent Law goes missing and then a monster appears before her, shaking her to her core. But this monster is something more, something dangerous and sinister. With each question and mystery, she is led back to the creature. But what is it really? What purpose does it serve? A sign of the end or a sign of a new beginning? Whatever it is, it repeatedly brings her back to Vincent and soon, alongside his journey back to another dome world called, Mosk. As they make their way across scarred and deserted Earth, Re-l and Vincent will learn more about the monster and the awakening which could be more of an ending than a beginning.
