Star Wars and High Speed
Usually, the movie promo materials are installed on the 6th floor of Amu Plaza, in front of the theaters, or in the basement near the food court. It's not common to see stuff set up on the first floor. I like the fact that they have the droid model here. But, having seen the commercials for the movie on yahoo, I really hate this particular droid design. It looks like it's specifically aimed at the same target audience as the Ewoks were. Blech.
The technical name for this droid type? - dirty soccer ball.
I've never seen the manga this anime is based on. The name is "High Speed". It may be the first sports manga about a swim team. Not sure if it makes marketing sense to release it in the middle of December...
I think it's going to be pretty easy to figure the story out without ever actually having to bother watching the movie.
