10 bucks on itunes is much cheaper than I would've thought. I would've waited for the physical otherwise but I guess I'll double dip when the time comes.

GKIDS Acquires North American Distribution Rights to “Lonely Castle in the Mirror”

Japan Academy Prize-Nominated Feature from Acclaimed Director Keiichi Hara To Receive Summer Theatrical Release

GKIDS, celebrating its 15th anniversary as a producer and distributor of award-winning and artist-driven animation from around the world, announced today it has acquired all North American distribution rights for LONELY CASTLE IN THE MIRROR. Directed by Keiichi Hara (Miss Hokusai, Colorful, The Wonderland), the film features animation from the lauded A-1 Pictures, and is adapted from the beloved novel of the same name by Mizuki Tsujimura.

LONELY CASTLE IN THE MIRROR held its International Premiere at the Rotterdam International Film Festival – marking the first time a Japanese animated feature was selected for the festival – and additionally had its US premiere at the New York International Children’s Film Festival. It was nominated for the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year, and was released domestically in Japan in December 2022.

Hara worked with various past collaborators on the project, including screenwriter Miho Maruo (Miss Hokusai, The Wonderland), composer Harumi Fuuki (Miss Hokusai, The Wonderland), as well as acclaimed artist Ilya Kuvshinov (The Wonderland) for visual concept and castle designs.

GKIDS handles North American distribution for Keiichi Hara’s previous feature films Summer Days with Coo (2007) and Miss Hokusai (2015). GKIDS will release LONELY CASTLE IN THE MIRROR theatrically in both its original Japanese language and an all-new English dubbed version this summer.

The all-rights North American distribution deal was negotiated between GKIDS and NTV.

“We are thrilled to be able to work again with director Keiichi Hara” said GKIDS President David Jesteadt. “His latest film is a deeply emotional story about the private struggles we all go through, and the small yet joyous connections with others that make life worth living. I can’t wait for North American audiences to join us on a trip to the Lonely Castle in the Mirror.”

However, anyone who breaks the rules will be eaten by a wolf.

From acclaimed director Keiichi Hara (Colorful, Miss Hokusai) and based on the bestselling novel by Mizuki Tsujimura, Lonely Castle in the Mirror is a heartfelt drama about the pains of growing up and the unlikely bonds that can bring people together.

GKIDS Acquires North American Distribution Rights from Toei Animation to “The First Slam Dunk”

The Japan Academy Prize-Winning Box Office Smash Hit
Feature Directed by Original Manga Creator Takehiko Inoue

GKIDS, celebrating its 15th anniversary as a producer and distributor of award-winning and artist-driven animation from around the world, announced today it has acquired North American distribution rights for THE FIRST SLAM DUNK from globally acclaimed and industry-leading animation studio Toei Animation.

The smash hit film opened domestically in Japan on December 3, 2022, and has gone on to break box office records in a number of countries during its current international release. With a current global box office of over $212 million, the film has become the 24th highest grossing film of all time in Japan. Upon the film’s South Korea release, it climbed to #2 at the box office for its opening weekend – becoming, at the time, the most-watched Japanese movie ever in South Korea. Most recently, THE FIRST SLAM DUNK opened in Mainland China and with $55.2 million reported at the box office on opening weekend, became the biggest opening ever for an imported animated film in the country.

Written and created by Takehiko Inoue, “Slam Dunk” is a beloved manga which was serialized from 1990-1996. The original manga is one of the best-selling manga series of all time, with over 170 million copies sold globally, and has been adapted to various media and video games, including a hit anime series that ran from 1993-1996. THE FIRST SLAM DUNK marks the first new feature-length film from the globally cherished franchise in over 28 years, as well as original manga creator Takehiko Inoue’s directorial debut. The film went on to be awarded this year’s Japan Academy Prize for Best Animation of the Year – marking the first nomination and win for Inoue.

GKIDS will release THE FIRST SLAM DUNK theatrically in the United States and Canada in both its original Japanese language and an all-new English dubbed version later this summer.

The North American distribution deal for theatrical and physical home video rights for the film was negotiated between GKIDS and Toei Animation.

“I am very thankful to our partners at Toei Animation for working together with us on what I consider one of the best sports films ever made,” said David Jesteadt, president of GKIDS. “THE FIRST SLAM DUNK is thrilling but also deeply emotional, and it has captured the hearts of audiences worldwide. We can’t wait to share the film with SLAM DUNK fans, as well as those who are discovering this work for the first time.”

”We’re thrilled to work with GKIDS to bring Toei Animation’s blockbuster film THE FIRST SLAM DUNK to North America,” said Masayuki Endo, president of Toei Animation Inc. “THE FIRST SLAM DUNK has been a smash hit in Asia since premiering in Japan last December and we’re excited to see the response from U.S. and Canadian audiences when it premieres this summer.”

“I want to welcome North American fans – both new and old – to the world of SLAM DUNK,” said Toshiyuki Matsui, producer of THE FIRST SLAM DUNK. “THE FIRST SLAM DUNK offers the unique excitement and thrills of SLAM DUNK that can only be experienced in a movie theatre.”

The staff for the new television anime project based on Nobuhiro Watsuki's Rurouni Kenshin manga debuted its fourth promotional video on Saturday. The video announces and previews the "Kissaki" (Sword Tip) ending theme song that singer-songwriter Reol created for the anime, and it also announces the anime's July 6 premiere.

The anime will premiere on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block and other venues on July 6 at 25:55 (effectively, July 7 at 12:55 a.m. or July 6 at 11:55 a.m. EDT).

In addition, the staff will hold screening events in Japan, the United States, France, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, and South Korea. Japan will have two screenings on June 18 at Tokyo's United Cinema Aqua City Odaiba with cast members Sōma Saitō, Rie Takahashi, Makoto Koichi, and Taku Yashiro,.
