Manga UK To Release 5 Centimeters Per Second on Blu-Ray This October

Manga Entertainment UK have announced that they will be releasing Makoto Shinkai’s animated feature-length-film 5 Centimeters Per Second on Blu-Ray on the 29th October 2018.

Animted by CoMix Wave, which is of course the same animation studio behind Makoto Shinkai’s other films such as The Place Promised in Our Early Days, Voices of a Distant Star and Your Name, 5 Centimeters Per Second is a three-part (or three-chapter) story that explores the prospect of young love, hope and loss.

Synopsis: Beginning with the lyrical image of cherry blossoms falling at five centimeters a second Makoto Shinkai paints a breathtakingly vivid tableau of young love, desire, loss and hope. Told in three chapters we follow the young dreamer Takaki through his life as cruel winters, cold technology, silence and finally adult obligations and responsibility converge to crush the delicate petals of true love.

Finding beauty in everyday objects and moments, Shinkai reveals he is a master of animation and haunting beautiful storytelling. Fall in love with this gorgeous thoughtful film hailed by critics and audiences alike for its beauty, truth and innovation in animation.

Manga Entertainment UK had previously released 5 Centimeters Per Second on DVD and the film has been released on Blu-Ray in other countries; but following on from Anime Limited’s release of the Shinkai Double Pack it sparked a demand from anime fans for this film. Naturally Manga UK have been able to respond and as such we can expect this film on Blu-Ray in the UK next month.

5 Centimeters Per Second is scheduled to be released on the 29th October 2018 and (in other news) Manga Entertainment UK have also licensed Rooster Teeth’s thirteenth and fourteenth season of Red Vs Blue for DVD and Blu-Ray release next month.
