In mid-August last year we were delighted to bring you the film Napping Princess in cinemas across the UK. Since then we know a lot of you have been excited for the prospect of being able to add this lovely film to your anime collection and today we’re excited to show you what to expect from our release that will be arriving on 19th March! Today we’ll be showing you the Ltd Collector’s Edition Blu-ray+DVD set specifically.
But before we show you the finished product itself, if you’re not familiar with the film let’s give you a quick introduction to it.
Director: Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East)
Synopsis: “Kokone should be diligently studying for her university entrance exams, but she just can’t seem to stay awake. Aside from stealing precious study time, her napping is even more distracting, as it brings on strange dreams with warring machines that hint at family secrets that have been dormant for years.
She can’t ask her father, a hipster mechanic more talented and artful than his job requires, as he’s always busy modifying motorcycles and cars in flights of fancy. What are these visions that lead Kokone at once closer to and farther away from her family? ”
