When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he’s taken in by Kumatestu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test – a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.
This is the first screening in the Fall 2016 Cine-East film series; a full schedule will be available for download in the next APSI Bulletin.
