The short film Garden of Words / Kotonoha no Niwa came out back in 2013 on home video in Japan and we’ve had the North American release through Sentai Filmworks. We learned earlier this month that the streaming service was set to add the film to its stable of anime properties with a planned November 15th, 2019 debut and that’s happened – which is welcome as we had a few titles not follow through previously. With the film now live we can verify what the language options are and they don’t differ from the home video as we get the original Japanese language with English subtitles and the English dub. Sadly, no additional tracks were available or created for the streaming.

Plot concept: While absconding from school, he encounters and befriends a young woman name Yukari. As the story unfolds, we soon discover that as their friendship deepens, the consequences will put their friendship to the ultimate test. Beautifully shot and with a tremendous amount of fine detail, Garden of Words really stands out as one of the most visually stunning anime films of the year.
