Chocolate Underground | チョコレート・アンダーグラウンド Animezing

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan

This month the JICC's Animezing Series returns with a thrilling adventure, doling out a healthy dose of sweetness for chocolate and anime lovers alike!

Based on the British children's novel Bootleg by Alex Shearer, Chocolate Underground tells the story of two sweet-toothed boys trapped in a land where goodies like chocolate have been banned. Forced to sit idly by as their much-preferred pastry shop falls victim to the oppression of the Good for You Party, their frowns are turned upside down when they stumble upon a secret stash of sugar and cocoa in an abandoned mine. Soon they're running a bootleg chocolate factory underground, smuggling hope to chocoholics throughout the country as they ignite the first sparks of revolution.
