Will Teiichi’s dreams come true?

By: Geoffrey Greig

Will Teiichi’s dreams come true? Find out on November 15th!

We’re excited to be co-presenting 永井聡 Akira Nagai’s adaptation of 古屋兎丸 Usamaru Furuya’s manga 帝一の國 Teiichi: Battle of Supreme High at Reel Asian’s 21st festival!

The story is an absurdist satire of Japan’s elitist pathways to the seats of power. Sabotage, bribery, and everything else you can imagine charge the boys’ all out warfare. This hilarious and achingly relevant tale comes to a head when a system-disrupting challenger forces Teiichi to question the pure passion that drove him to his totalitarian bloodthirst.

Don’t take my or the press package’s word for it, come on out to the JCCC on November 15th! Not only that, but I’ve traveled far and long to obtain a secret code, the fabled DISCOUNT. That’s right, by entering the promo code: KAEDE you can get 20% off the screening of Teiichi: Battle of Supreme High! (and Blade of the Immortal as well)

That’s right, not 5, not 10, but 15 percent off, all with a simple promo code.

Still not enough? Stay tuned for a special that will run through the weekend and into early next week for your chance to obtain a boon that will make 20% seem like 20% plus 80%.

Tickets…. you can win tickets.
