Featured Anime: Garakowa -Restore the World-


An original anime project from Pony Canyon and A-1 Pictures!

Kantoku (Original characters design), Fumihiko Shimo (Screenplay) and Masashi Ishihama (Director) join forces to create an all-new animated feature “ Garakowa-~Restore the World -.”

“World order is restored”
“A young girl discovers a beautiful world”
  “They must return to that place”
Prepare to be shocked when these phrases connect!


Brilliant rays of colorful light float in a space devoid of gravity – “The Box of Wisdom.”

A space inhabited by multiple worlds, countless timelines and a diversity of people, where Dual and Dorothy battle the enemy — a virus encroaching on the world.

A world infected by the virus must be deleted.

This is Dual and Dorothy’s responsibility and job.

One day, Dual and Dorothy discover a new virus attacking a girl.

They save the girl and quietly wait for her to awaken.

Who is she? Where did she come from? Where will she go?

The girl finally awakens. She calls herself “Remo” and has only one thing to say:

“I have to return to the flower garden…”

Day Stage – SAT 14:30
