As part of the weekly newswire Anime Limited have today announced that the Blu-ray and DVD release of Miss Hokusai has been delayed so that the film can receive a longer stint in cinemas.
The news comes as part of a weekly newswire post on the Anime Limited website which also reveals that the film will be released ‘sometime’ in April with a date to be confirmed at a later time.
We know lots of you have been enjoying seeing this (along with Anthem of the Heart) in cinemas across the UK as part of the Japan Foundation Film Touring programme. Today we are announcing that we are extending the run of the film being available to watch in cinemas across the UK and this will also extend into Ireland as well. This in-turn means that our home video release is subsequently going to be moving back to April. (Exact date to be confirmed soon.) Given there is now more time until our release we’re working to see if something extra special might be possible for our release which, all going well, we hope to be able to share details about soon.
Personally i find it bizarre for Anime Limited to ‘extend’ the films showing in cinemas; as it is a film that has been around in UK cinemas – in limited fashion – for quite some time; as it was also one of the films shown at Anime Limited at MCM Cinema screenings.
As it stands Miss Hokusai is currently expected for release within April; with a confirmed date to be revealed in the coming weeks.
