One of my top five anime features of all time, Discotek Media has added the next layer to their release of Urusei Yatsura: Beautiful Dreamer with a Blu-ray release scheduled. The distributor picked up the rights to the film in 2016 and released it on DVD and has now set a February 27th, 2018 release for the Blu-ray edition. It’ll be done with the original Japanese language track with English subtitles and will include the English language dub that Central Park Media produced when they originally acquired it ages ago.
Plot Concept: Tomobiki High is in a frenzy to get ready for the school festival. Props need to be made, costumes designed, and maybe somewhere sleep to be had! Ataru, Lum, Shutaro, Shinobu, and the rest of Class 2-4 are determined to not be outdone this year, and they’re rushing to make the final preparations for tomorrow’s grand opening. Once they wake up the next morning, they continue their mad rush to get ready for tomorrow’s grand opening. And then the next day… hey, isn’t something strange going on? Silence lingers over the city, the buildings filled with nothing but dust and mold. Is this a dream? Or have the kids (and a few related adults) of Class 2-4 finally woken up? If they can spend each day having fun with each other, does it matter?
