Anime Limited have today announced that they will be giving The Napping Princess (otherwise known as Hirune Hime: Shiranai Watashi no Monogatari) a UK theatrical release during the Summer.
Screening details, such as Dates and locations, have yet to be revealed but we do know that the film will be presented in Japanese with English subtitles (as an English Dub currently does not exist). Curious about the film? Then check out the synopsis and trailer below.
Synopsis: This fender and genre-bending film takes us into the not-too-distant machine-driven future. Kokone should be diligently studying for her university entrance exams, but she just can’t seem to stay awake. Aside from stealing precious study time, her napping is even more distracting, as it brings on strange dreams with warring machines that hint at family secrets that have been dormant for years. She can’t ask her father, a hipster mechanic more talented and artful than his job requires, as he’s always busy modifying motorcycles and cars in flights of fancy. What are these visions that lead Kokone at once closer to and farther away from her family? Like all the best anime, the film revels in multilayered fantasy to show how sometimes opposites—waking and dreaming, the past and the future—are far more intertwined than they appear.
The Napping Princess will receive a showings across the UK during the summer of 2017; alternatively the Manga is being simulpublish by YenPress (as previously reported).
