About the event
Nirvana Comics presents a double feature of GHOST IN THE SHELL (1995) and NINJA SCROLL on Saturday 5/27!
Our latest double feature collaboration with @nirvanacomicsknoxville spotlights a pair of adult anime classics that helped solidify the genre's popularity with American audiences... plus trivia, giveaways, and anime-centric video goodies!
GHOST IN THE SHELL (1995) - Cyborg federal agent Maj. Motoko Kusanagi trails "The Puppet Master", who illegally hacks into the computerized minds of cyborg-human hybrids. Her pursuit of a man who can modify the identity of strangers leaves Motoko pondering her own makeup and what life might be like if she had more human traits. With her partner, she corners the hacker, but her curiosity about her identity sends the case in an unforeseen direction.
NINJA SCROLL (1993) - Jubei, a highly skilled ninja, is coerced into slaying his own clan of warriors. After begrudgingly killing his fellow swordsmen, he becomes a roving hired assassin. During his travels, he must face off against an organization of demonic ninjas known as the Devils of Kimon, who are plotting to take power of Japan's government. The Devils will stop at nothing, and have the power to annihilate entire villages. Now, only Jubei and a shogun spy named Dakuan can stop them.
