Mashahiro Ando 103 min In Japanese with English subtitles Cert. 18 SWORD OF THE STRANGER is a thrilling action anime and a hair-raising adventure laced with stunningly animated fight scenes and a high body count. Kotarou is a young boy pursued by the royal army of China’s Ming dynasty. When his trusty dog Tobimaru is injured in an ambush he reluctantly hires a nameless samurai for protection... however, No-Name has a guilty past to deal with along with some of China’s fiercest warriors. Trouble continues to follow them, for within the Chinese militia lies Rarou, a fearsome Western fighter who answers to no one and is in search of a worthy opponent, and he will not rest until he finds the boy and the samurai. And when the true reason for the Chinese militia’s presence in Japan is revealed, it will test the bonds between Kotarou and No-Name. Following the film will be a "Studio Bones Screentalk" with anime expert Helen McCarthy (The Anime! Movie Guide, Hayao Miyazaki: Master of Japanese Animation, and founder of the magazine AnimeFX) and two specials guests: director Masahiro Ando and producer Mashiko Minami from the anime studio that made COWBOY BEBOP, FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST, SOUL EATER and SWORD OF THE STRANGER.
