The Row House Cinema will screen parts 1 and 2 of the Laughing Under the Clouds Gaiden trilogy on September 1 and 2. Anime News Network provides a synopsis:
The manga includes stories not told in the original manga, including some from the past and some from the future. The original manga's story takes place in the 11th year of the Meiji era, when the number of people in Japan who feel dissatisfaction toward the government are increasing due to the increasing speed of Westernization and the ban on samurai. In order to curb the increased rate of crime, the government opens a new prison. The three brothers of the Kumo family are entrusted with the duty of transporting these criminals to the new prison, but adventures await them on the way.
The trilogy's third installment opens in Japan on September 1. The movies will play for two shows only, and ticket information is forthcoming. The single-screen theater is located at 4115 Butler Street in Lawrenceville (map).
