Panda Bear in Africa

Story: Ping is a young panda who lives in an idyllic village in the middle of China. But when his best friend, Jielong the dragon, is kidnapped to be given as a gift to a spoilt young lion, Ping doesn’t waste a second: he sets off on an adventure that will take him all the way to Africa!

Flavors of Iraq

Story: The Fatiha is the first sura of the Koran. In Muslim tradition, it is also the name used for the ceremony to pay tribute to the deceased. Today, it’s Amir’s Fatiha, Feurat Alani’s father, a French and Iraqi journalist. It’s the opportunity for his friends and family to reflect on Amir’s story, and for Feurat to revisit his own story and Iraq’s history.

Look Back

Story: The overly confident Fujino and introverted Kyomoto couldn’t be more different. Their love of drawing manga is the one thing connecting these contrasting girls. However, one day something happens to them that shatters everything. A heart-wrenching and impactful story about growing up.


Story: “That’s a hassle.” That was second-year high schooler Nagi Seishiro’s favorite phrase as he lived his dull life. Until Mikage Reo, a classmate who dreamed of winning the World Cup, discovered Nagi’s hidden skill, inspiring him to play soccer and share his outstanding talent. One day, he receives an invitation to the mysterious BLUE LOCK Project. What awaits him there is an encounter with the finest strikers assembled from across the country. Nagi’s dream of becoming the best, alongside Reo, will take this prodigy to a world he’s never known.
