I’ve written a letter to Cathay (a major Movie Theater Corporation in Singapore) to request the screening of Anime movies.
Here’s the letter:
On behalf of the large following of Anime fans, I would like to suggest the showing of Anime movies in your cinemas.
With your previous screening of the ‘Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance’ movie, many fans, including myself, were overjoyed that we were able to experience a movie from one of our favorite franchises screened in theatres. It was simply a treat.
This year, there are a multitude of Anime movies that many Anime fans in Singapore would have no hope of watching if your esteemed organisation decide not to bring in the movies. If so, as diehard fans of Japanese Animation, we would be understandably be disheartened.
Nevertheless, we are still hopeful that your organisation would favaourably consider the suggestion.
The outstanding movies are:
– Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE FIRST
– The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
– Macross Frontier Movie: The False Diva
– Fate/Stay Night Movie: Unlimited Blade Works
These movies are exceedingly popular in Japan and have achieved outstanding box office performances and are from the extremely popular Anime series. Since there are a significant number of Anime fans in Singapore as evidenced by the overwhelming attendance at last year’s Anime Festival Asia convention, I anticipate that the response towards these movies will be great as well.
It is a very common misconception that Anime is for children. Anime is an art form that can convey a myriad of stories and I believe that these movies can be targeted towards a much wider audience as there are many adults who are fascinated by them.
In view of above, I look forward to Anime movies gaining more presence in Singapore with the support of your organisation.
If you are an Anime fan from Singapore, I do hope that you can show and lend your support in getting more Anime Movies screened over here. (^.^) We can all do our part by bringing the wonder of Anime movies to the companies’ attention – politely and respectfully of course.
It would also be great if you anyone knows how to set up an online petition as I myself am not familiar with this field.
