Very interesting choice in venue. Wonder if it'll do well and become a new stop for the 3rd movie if/when that comes out?

Geez, the closest the movie will probably ever be to me before it hits the U.S. dvd/blu-ray market, and it's the day right before Thanksgiving? GUH.

If it wouldn't totally awkward and totally weird-- and awfully insensitive to the family back in St. Louis and my own slight homesickness-- I'd try to see if I could travel back with my roommate to his home in the KC area.

Kansas city? I thought for sure they would show it in St. Louis first.

Why the hell are they showing two anime movies in [insults removed]?

I mean, Kansas is the LAST place I'd expect to see Madoka in.

I think you might be unaware just how much Saint Louis gets shafted by big media/entertainment events as compared to KC Wink (though there have been some exceptions, like Lady Gaga's tour stop in STL a couple years back). This may be because Kansas City might technically be a more densely populated city than the City of Saint Louis... which I think is a pretty unfair reason because then the significance of Saint Louis County is being overlooked (which, last time I checked, has over 2 million people living in it and is probably the largest suburban-metropolitan community in Missouri). And all the more unfair since, if it somehow DOES come to St. Louis at some point, I won't be in St. Louis anymore for Thanksgiving break! ;A;

Geez, where the heck did that bigotry come from? And it's not even the deep South we're talking about; we're talking about the red and blue midwest here-- and in a metropolitan area that for better or for worse is a large blue city in a reddish purple state.

Furthermore, read a little more closely-- they're showing the movies in Kansas City, MO and not Kansas City, KS. (Mainly because the Missouri side of KC is more heavily populated, for some reason.)

Good for you, Kansassouri. You've come a long way.

Kansas is pretty deep red as a state, but KC is one of the more liberal areas, and Lawrence, Kansas (about 30 minutes away) is pretty much the liberal hub for the whole state. So, KC is a pretty reasonable place if they're looking for a midwest anime fan congregation.

EDIT: Also, I think Johnny Yong Bosch and Kari Wahlgren would take issue with your KC hate. Wink Stereotypes aren't everything.

Hay there, I'm a liberal college student who loves anime and lives in KC. So I think I am quite qualified to say that Chagen46 mad a very moronic statement. KC is actually a very liberal city with major populations of all religions including a large atheist population (which I would be a member of). Also Animerican14 is quite right, the main part of KC that most people think of (and where this theater can be found) is actually located in Missouri, not Kansas (thank god).

I'd also like to point out that KC has a very large anime fan population and hosts Naka-Kon which is one of the larger anime conventions in the midwest. Also it's not really shocking that Screenland at the Crossroads (Crossroads being KC's famous art district) is showing the Madkoka films considering that they actually have a long record of showing anime films. This is where I was able to see all the Eva reboot films as well as the recent Trigun movie, they also plan on showing the live action Battleship Yamato movie.

So in conclusion might I suggest that Chagen46 actually come and visit KC,MO and see these movies while he's in town. I'm sure he'd realize a thing or two about how stupid his comment really was.

Screw you, I want to see it come to Atlanta or maybe Charlotte! The deep south could certainly use some Madoka love!

This is amazing news! This theater showed Evangelion 2.0 as well, so I was hoping to see more anime there. You can bet I will be there!!

...But hey, really, stop hating on Kansans. We're not all terrible bible-beaters, I promise.

Chagen couldn't even be bothered to see that it's being played in Mizureh; do you really expect him to make a well-informed critique of the region?

Also, I find his lack of tolerance amusing, given that he of all people needs it badly.

I'm still surprised that it's not scheduled to be shown here in Boston. Summer Wars played at the Museum of Fine Arts here when it was on tour. With our high concentrations of educational institutions and hospitals, it should not be surprising that a third of the residents of Suffolk County, where Boston is located, are between 15 and 29 years of age. About 8-9% of the population is Asian, though mostly Chinese and Vietnamese. You would think having as large a population of university students as we do here would make showing Madoka commercially viable.

Maybe I should move to Kansas City.

Awesome! I live in Topeka and have been to this theater three times (for the first two Rebuild of Evangelion movies and the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood movie), so I'll have to try to pencil this in.

This. Either of those two cities is more deserving than KC and I'm obviously not saying that because I live in San Antonio and Austin is like 2 hours from here
