The anime debut of innocent little Shiva and the demonic chaperone she calls Teacher, well known to the devoted readership of the manga The Girl From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún (600,000 strong in Japan alone), is upon us! The affecting gothic fairytale by manga artist Nagabe is brought to life by rising young animation talents Yutaro Kubo and Satomi Maiya, whose short films have screened at the Annecy, Ottawa, Hiroshima and Zagreb animation festivals. Produced by Wit Studio (ATTACK ON TITAN), this otherworldly creation makes its World Premiere at Fantasia this summer! – Rupert Bottenberg
