Lupin The Third Vs Detective Conan The Movie
A new mineral with stealth properties is discovered in a faraway land. Unfortunately, this discovery attracts the wrong crowd, one guy by the name of Arsene Lupin III. Meanwhile, Vespania’s Queen Sakura dies and her son Prince Gill follows soon after. This leaves the royal house in disarray.
When a new ruler is appointed, she becomes the target of everyone’s suspicion. Our little hero, Detective Conan, comes into the picture when he sees the new queen in trouble at a party he is attending. Directed by Hajime Kamegaki, with the voices of Minami Takayama (Conan) and Kanichi Kurita (Arsene Lupin III).
Hunter X Hunter: The Last Mission
The second feature-length anime film based on the hugely popular Hunter X Hunter manga, which revolves around Gon, a powerful “Hunter” who specialises in fantastical quests for strange relics, unknown creatures, hidden treasure and so on. The Last Mission delves into the murky past of Isaac Netero, chairman of the Hunters Association, and the shadowy Jed, a user of the “On” power that derives its power from hatred.
When the Battle Olympia Tournament comes under attack by a group of On-using warriors hell-bent on killing all Hunters, Gon and his friend Killua are forced to find the source of the invasion and in the process, discover the dark secrets that Netero has been hiding all these years. Voice talents include Mariya Ise, Megumi Han, Chisa Yokoyama and Daisuke Namikawa.
Magical Sisters Yoyo And Nene
When a big tree entangled with a tall building suddenly appears out of nowhere, sisters Yoyo and Nene, who have magical abilities, go and check it out. They are suddenly transported away from their world to a place where weird happenings are going on. Ai Kakuma lends her voice to Nene and Sumire Morohoshi voices Yoyo.
