The New York Anime Festival (NYAF) today announced it will host the North American Premiere of the anime film CATBLUE Dynamite at its inaugural event this December in New York City. CATBLUE Dynamite, set in the 1970s, is the story of a girl named Blue who gets mixed up with the mob over a missing Frank Sinatra album. But while going up against an army of hitmen might make a normal woman shake, Blue’s anything but normal. Blue has all the agility and finesse (and ears and a tail) of a cat, and when her reflexes alone aren’t enough, she can also count on an undead sidekick. Sinatra, catgirls, and ghosts are just the start of the psychedelic motion picture that is CATBLUE Dynamite.
CATBLUE Dynamite is the latest work from Romanov Higa, Director of URDA and TANK SWAT 01 and Action Director of the Hellsing Ultimate series. As noted, the premiere of the film will be a highlight of the The New York Anime Festival which takes place December 7 - 9 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City. The exact time and location of the premiere will be announced in the near future.
The North American premiere of CATBLUE Dynamite is presented by Wedge Holdings, the producer of the animation and an Official Sponsor of the New York Anime Festival. Fans and professionals wishing to discover more about CATBLUE Dynamite and Wedge Holdings will have numerous opportunities at CATBLUE Dynamite panels as well as at the Wedge Holdings booth in the New York Anime Festival’s Exhibition Hall.
“CATBLUE Dynamite is absolutely unique,” John McGeary, the New York Anime Festival’s Show Manager, said. “We’ve very honored to be working with Wedge Holdings to bring CATBLUE Dynamite to North America for the first time.”
