Rogue A.I., family troubles, and MMO-run civilizations, oh my! To celebrate Japanese cinema, we’re joined by translator Daniel Huddleston for a discussion of Mamoru Hosoda’s 2009 film, Summer Wars. You may be familiar with Hosoda’s other excellent work, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time; Summer Wars is also an excellent work.
We hope you enjoy the episode!
