I remember this similar type of 'animation only' cinema that has opened in 2004, failed epically. Since no there are much more pro-found otaku fanbase + more movies than before, I can see this succeeding.

I already respect ufotable quite a lot because of other things they've done, but this really is pretty awesome of them.

Good on them!

Interesting to see if this works out or not.

Wow, thats pretty awesome! Leave it to ufotable to do something so innovative and promising. I hope it turns out well, that area is a little bit secluded since its on a Shikoku island.
