OUT OF THE DARKNESS?
Mori High’s annual school festival is fast approaching, and Sunako’s class is gearing up to perform a cosplay café. Sunako’s roomies, the four hottest guys in Japan, are shocked when Sunako leaves the dark recesses of her room and heads out shopping with a gaggle of high school girls. However, what Sunako thought was a simple cosplay supply shopping trip soon turns into a full-blown girly event complete with karaoke, ritzy boutiques, and even a photo booth. Can the dark Sunako survive an entire day of perky pink-infested fun? Could this be her first step on the path to ladyhood?

For its 10th anniversary, the festival celebrates those who have dared to stand ‘on the edge,’ risking their careers, and sometimes their lives, to speak out for their art and beliefs. Join us for a wide range of events, including debates, one-on-one conversations, participatory workshops and performances in venues throughout the city.
