While the Japanese release of Doukyusei is arriving next week from Aniplex Japan, Aniplex USA is following up their limited theatrical release of the film with the domestic release on home video. Announced at Anime Central 2016, the film is getting a September 20th, 2016 release on Blu-ray only. It’s priced at $74.98 with a retail priced of $59.98 for the 60-minute feature film. It’ll be in its original Japanese language with English subtitles and include the promos and commercials as on-disc extras. The set comes with a deluxe booklet and illustration cards as first-press extras.
The original work comes from Asumiko Nakamura that was a single volume/six chapter release that was serialized in Opera back in 2006 to 2007. It has a pretty solid team behind it with Shouko Nakamura directing and Akemi Hayashi on board as the character designer. Kenji Nojima and Hiroshi Kamiya are set to start in the lead roles with Manabu Hara in a supporting role.
Plot concept: A boy met a boy. They were in the flush of youth. Their love felt like a dream, like sparkling soda pop.
