From Mamoru Hosoda, the visionary director of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, comes a brand new, award winning animated feature, Summer Wars, released on DVD and Blu-ray by Manga Entertainment on 28th March 2011, the story of an ordinary family forced to go to extraordinary lengths to avert an impending cyber-apocalypse.

Described by Jonathan Clements (author of "Schoolgirl Milky Crisis: Adventures In The Anime And Manga Trade") as "Ghost In The Shell for the Facebook generation", as a "contemporary romance for the Facebook generation... [that] rivals the work of Ghibli" (Tom Smith, Neo) and by Anime News Network as "a triumph... incredibly entertaining and intriguingly intelligent... pretty much perfect", Summer Wars was the winner of the 2010 Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year, the 2010 Japan Media Arts Festival's Animation Division Grand Prize, the Anaheim International Film Festival's Audience Award for Best Animated Feature and was nominated for the prestigious Golden Leopard award at the Locarno International Film Festival.

Kenji Koiso is your typical teenage misfit. He's good at maths, bad with girls, and spends most of his time hanging out in the all-powerful, online community known as OZ. His second life is the only life he has until the hottest girl at school, Natsuki Shinhara, hijacks him for a starring role as a fake fiancé at a family reunion to celebrate her grandmother's birthday. Things only get stranger from there. A late-night email containing a cryptic mathematical riddle leads to the unleashing of a rogue Artificial Intelligence agent intent on using the virtual word of OZ to destroy the real world. As true Armageddon looms on the horizon, Kenji and Natsuki's family must set aside their differences and band together to save the worlds they inhabit, both real and virtual.

"A near-perfect blend of social satire and science-fiction" (Anime News Network), "richly detailed and beautifully written" (Twitch), Summer Wars is "a superb example of Japanese anime. with an appeal beyond Japanese animation buffs" (The Los Angeles Times).
