Film: "POP IN Q" (2016, 96min. Rating: PG)

Young girls stand up together to overcome adversity and save the world in this fantasy idol anime commemorating the sixteenth anniversary of Toei Animation.

From the director of “Pretty Cure”, the magical girls anime metaseries that has swept Japan and now culminated into 16 seasons, Naoki Miyahara directs “Pop in Q”.

Third year middle-schooler and track and field athlete Isumi (Seto Asami) is told by her parents that she must move to Tokyo with them.

In frustration, Isumi runs to the beach and comes across a mysterious crystal shard. Upon picking it up, she is transported to another world and encounters a strange life-form calling itself a Pokon.

The Pokon tells her that time and space is in danger of collapsing, and that there is only one way to save it – dance.

Presented by the Consulate-General of Japan, the Japan Foundation, Te Manawa and Auckland Council.
