The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy round out their month of Ani-MAY with a stunning (and surprising) project from Mamoru Hosoda that surpasses time and bullet trains with 2018’s Mirai. The Undeniable Uwu’s are completely dialed into this anime feature that debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, setting a whole new expectation for this generation’s anime.

Grab your yellow pants & your popcorn, & tune in to find out in this week’s special Ani-MAY episode of The Filmlosophers!
