    - Laughing Under the Clouds, Pt. 1 | 4:15pm - 5:15pm
    The Meiji Restoration in Japan (1860's) saw many rebellious samurai who had enough when it became unlawful to carry a sword. To house all these criminals, a huge prison was made in the middle of Lake Biwa. Tasked with getting these hardened militants to their final home were the Kumou brothers. In this three-part prequel, episode one places us one year after the great battle against Orochi, the gigantic snake. Kumou Tenka, paralyzed in the final battle and darker things, is having a crisis of the soul and has withdrawn from the world. Will his younger brothers, Soramaru and Chutaro, find out what became of their older brother - and why?

      And now it is time for the GKIDS panel. They have a prolific movie lineup, so let's hear from them what they have to say. They got Perfect Blue, and they seemed to be primed to add more to that.
      MyAnimeList | Avatar: Haru, My Roommate is a Cat
      Watching: And Yet the Town Moves, Super Sonico, Hayate the Combat Butler season 2, Toonami Stuff
      Simulcasts: FTL, TOA-I, TSL, SAO, KTF, CQK, KMF, DAL, TSH, PNL, More TBD
      The only thing better than anime is sports. Get hit hard and you got JACKED UP! Or else it's a C'mon Man!

        Don't see any new updates from GKIDS today (not too surprising with the recent Perfect Blue theatrical announcement).

        The reasoning for ELEVEN ARTS not having a panel is the home video distribution agreement with Right Stuf: https://www.rightstufanime.com/form/eleven-arts.
