Summer Wars (2009) was the first original full-length anime directed by Mamoru Hosoda. It was distributed abroad in over 90 countries including America, France, the UK, Germany, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and more. It was also officially listed at the Berlin International Film Festival, one of the three biggest movie festivals of the world. Anime fans in Thailand can look forward to an exhibition of this popular movie in Bangkok!
Many fans expressed their wish to see the movie on a big screen, and the production of the exhibition will include a free screening as well. After the movie, there will be a talk event with producer Yuichiro Saito. Furthermore, they will sell exclusive Summer Wars merchandise, which normally can only be bought in Japan.
Japanese products in general and the rest of the popular works by Mamoru Hosoda (many of them translated in Thai) are very popular in the Asian country.
