It's Philippines-Japan Friendship month again and so we were at the Eiga Sai 2011 in Shang Cineplex Cinema 4, Shangrila Plaza.
We almost missed this year's event and we're just glad we were able to make it to watching the anime Summer Days with Coo.
The movie was worth waking up early. Summer Days with Coo is about a young water-sprite finding his place in the modern world. Coo, the water sprite, has been buried underground / trapped inside a rock since the Edo period. Hundreds of years later, a young boy named Koichi found him and brought him to his house thinking he was some sort of fossil. Of course we're not going to tell you more. It's a really nice movie so we hope you get to watch it too.
This year's Eiga Sai movies were:
One Million Yen Girl
The Chef of South Polar
Summer Days With Coo
Yunagi City, Sakura Country
The Summit: A Chronicle of Stones
Feel The Wind
