An Artificial Love Story

During Anime Expo last year, we announced that we had acquired the rights to the romantic sci-fi film, Hal. From the studio behind Attack on Titan comes their first film ever, and wow is it stunning. Hal is a love story set in the near future, with sci-fi elements and gorgeous animation. Manga fans might recognize the character designs from Io Sakisaka, the manga artist and creator of Strobe Edge and Ao Haru Ride.

 

We’ve been pretty quiet about this film since we announced it last year, but now we’re pleased to tell you that the film will be coming to Blu-ray and DVD combo pack this fall; and yes, it will be a dual language release (that means it’ll have both a dubbed and subbed track).  Here’s a promotional trailer.

 

 

synopsis:

From the studio behind Attack on Titan comes the directorial debut of a bold, new voice in the world of anime.

Kurumi’s heart was broken by the sudden death of her boyfriend in a tragic airplane accident. Forced to carry on without her beloved Hal, she fell into a reclusive and joyless existence. Kurumi had given up on the world, but a brilliant scientist devised a plan to win her back. By melding futuristic technology with the binary equivalent of human emotion, they created an ultra-lifelike robotic surrogate to take Hal’s place – and lure Kurumi from her shroud of solitude. Resistant at first, this shattered beauty slowly yielded to her feelings of longing – and took comfort in the company of a robot. Though their unique bond grew stronger with each passing day, Kurumi and Hal would soon discover that nothing about their artificial love story was quite as it seemed.

 

 

Hal‘s official North American subtitled film premiere will be at Sakuracon this Friday at 4:15 pm. Be sure to catch it if you’re attending!

 

New Release Tuesday – In Case You Missed it the First Time

Happy New Release Tuesday! We have several releases today for those who might have missed them the first time around, or were waiting for a lower price point before pouncing.

 

First up, the collections continue with One Piece Collection 9!

 

synopsis:

When Luffy and his mates drop anchor at the bizarre island of Long Ring Long Land, they’re challenged to a Davy Back Fight by the fast-talking Foxy Pirates! The Straw Hats are no strangers to squabbles, but the sacred code of pirates decrees that this contest could cost Luffy his crew! Next on the horizon for the Hats, it’s a case of missing memories as everyone but Robin forgets they ever knew each other. Usopp is quick to claim the title of captain, and Zoro does the unthinkable by attacking Luffy! Can Robin recover the crew’s lost recollections before disaster strikes!? She’d better work fast because far greater foes lie ahead, and the Straw Hats will need all hands on deck if they hope to survive the return of Captain Foxy – and the icy arrival of Admiral Aokiji!

Look out, Seattle! We’re heading to Sakuracon!

 

We are heading up north again this weekend for SakuraCon!  Are you as excited as we are for the event?  We have a ton of fun things planned, so read on for all of the details.

 

We have two English dub premieres scheduled this weekend.

 

Code:Breaker will screen on Friday, April 18th at 6:30 PM in Panels 1 (6C).

 

synopsis:

From the director of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood comes a story that asks just how many lives a hero can take before he becomes a villain.

 

Rei Ogami doesn’t have a problem with killing. As a Code:Breaker—a super-powered assassin employed by a secret government organization—he works outside of the law, existing in the gray area between right and wrong. When Rei gets an assignment, criminals are cremated in a blaze of blue fire. That is, until a classmate named Sakura witnesses his fatal flames in action and makes it her mission to keep him from killing again.

 

As Sakura becomes entrenched in Rei’s world of cruelty, mayhem, and violence, the line between good and evil begins to blur. When another Code:Breaker goes rogue and the remaining assassins assemble, murder might be the only way to make things right.

 

Code:Breaker releases on BD/DVD Combo on June 24th. Click here to order your copy.

 

Haganai NEXT will screen on Saturday, April 19th at 6:00 PM in Panels 1(6C).
