Nerdy movie night! So lets give this manga inspired Live Action a chance. Once again it'll be Cheap Tuesday (≈$7) a week after it's initial release, or come watch it again with us. I'll update once we get closer to the movie date, but as it stands we'll meet at the Kitchener Landmark theater for the 7pm viewing, then go to up the road to Fionn McCool's for dine and discussion afterwards. However if enough people agree we can venture to the Kitchener Cineplex Odeon and go from there.
