Anime Murder Mystery The Case of Hana & Alice is Coming to Blu-ray in September

Shout! Factory and GKIDS are teaming up once again, this time to bring the fan favorite anime murder mystery The Case of Hana & Alice that’s set to arrive on Blu-ray on September 17th. Head inside for the details!

From the Press Release:

Los Angeles, CA – The marvelous anime film The Case of Hana & Alice will be available in North America for the first time on September 17, when it comes to Blu-ray™ from GKIDS and Shout! Factory. The release includes over two hours of bonus features, including a greeting from the film’s premiere and a message from animator Makoto Shinkai (Your Name) that are exclusive to the physical release.

When Alice transfers to a new middle school, she hears an urban legend about a student who disappeared the previous year and is suspected to have been killed by his fellow students. Even worse, Alice discovers that she lives next door to his former house, a supposedly haunted home, now occupied by a reclusive classmate named Hana.

Hana and Alice decide to investigate this “murder case” together, but soon find that their lack of detective skills may be an obstacle. This unusual and charming film from famed writer-director Shunji Iwai is a shaggy-dog mystery tale that ultimately gives way to a wonderfully nuanced story of young female friendship, and the fantasies and thrills of everyday teenage life.

Bonus Features:

  • Interview with Yu Aoi and Anne Suzuki (voice actors)
  • Film Completion Press Conference
  • Film Premiere Stage Greeting
  • Interview with Director Shunji Iwai
  • Message from Makoto Shinkai (animator)
  • Theatrical Trailers and TV Spots
