Farewell to STAC

Another chapter in the annals of  the local anime community closes as after more than a decade in operation, the Shiro Tsubasa Animation Club, organisers of the End Of Year cosplay event, has disbanded. As mentioned in their announcement yesterday, chief among the reasons for closing shop are lack of new membership and event financing. This official statement confirms rumors circulating earlier that this year’s EOY was indeed the final one, after many years of holding the event since 2000. As the NTUVAS  has a long running relationship with their club, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank the club’s former members for their contribution to the communtiy and wish them good luck with their future endeavours!

Abayo!

Ponyo on The Cliff – In Cinemas 1/1/2009!

ponyo_on_the_cliff_by_the_sea_1_jan_poster_low

Coming to our shores this new year is another big Anime movie! Straight from Japan’s box office, where it earned both critical and financial success, comes Studio Ghibli and celebrated animation director Hayao Miyazaki‘s  latest offering, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (Gake no Ue no Ponyo).

Putting a spin on the classic tale of the “Little Mermaid”, Ponyo on the Cliff is centred around a boy named Sosuke, and his strange and magical pet goldfish Ponyo who he rescues from the sea. As their friendship grows, Ponyo wishes to give up her aquatic lifestyle to become a human girl. Little does she know that her choice comes with dire concequences not just for both of them, but the world itself!

With movies like “Spirited Away” and “Howl’s Moving Castle” to Miyazaki’s name, the movie promises to be wonderfully crafted personal tale, in the vein of  Miyazaki’s own “My Neighbour Totoro“, for all ages to enjoy. It will also prove a visual treat for the eyes, with 170,000 seperate animation cels used for the film, a record for Mr. Miyazaki!

Like Sky Crawlers, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea is distributed by Encore Films and is exclusive to Golden Village Cinemas. Come the 1st of January, do go catch a chance this new Miyazaki classic on the big screen!
