Nap­ping Princess

Animation Magazine - - Front Page -

(Sig­nal MD | GKIDS) Di­rec­tor: Kenji Kamiyama Re­lease Date: Septem­ber 8, 2017 Rot­ten Toma­toes Score: 67% Syn­op­sis: A teenage girl ac­quires spe­cial pow­ers and ad­ven­tures through a strange world called Heart­land, which is ac­cessed through sleep. Box Of­fice to Date: $39,000 world­wide The Word: “Drab re­al­ity and com­fort­ing fan­tasy merge in this warm­hearted an­i­ma­tion from Ja­pan…Not en­tirely co­her­ent, Nap­ping is still vis­ually strik­ing with some out­stand­ing ac­tion se­quences.” – Alan Hunter, Daily Ex­press. Nom­i­na­tion Chances: It’s a very crowded field this year, thanks to all of GKIDS’ in­de­pen­dent im­ports, so Kamiyama’s imag­i­na­tive anime may get lost in the shuf­fle.
