weathering-with-you-10~ Will the 4K UHD Blu-ray disc in the Exclusive Deluxe Edition be available separately?
Simply put, no. We only have clearance to include a 4K version of the film in the Deluxe Edition specifically.

~ Is there a DVD version of the film in the Deluxe Edition?
No, there isn’t – this edition is Blu-ray and 4K UHD Blu-ray only.

~ Will the Deluxe Edition really only be available at
At this time will be the only place where you can order this edition.

~ Will be there be any kind of digital version of the film available?
The film is still available on Screen Anime until July 25th (so there’s still time to catch it!) – beyond this, digital availability is something being looked into, but we don’t have any announcements to make about a digital release of the film.

~ When talking about the 4K UHD Blu-ray you said “first UK announcement regarding a 4K UHD Blu-ray release”, does this mean you have more in the works?
We don’t have any other news concerning 4K UHD Blu-ray releases as things stand. This doesn’t mean we won’t do any more in the future, but this is a brand new venture for us.


5cm-announceIf you’ve made it all the way to the bottom of this information-packed post, you’re clearly a big Makoto Shinkai fan, and so you deserve to be rewarded with some important news.

As you doubtless all know, all of us here at Anime Limited are huge fans of Mr. Shinkai’s works, and since the company’s inception we’ve worked on releases of many of his titles, all the way from his early works such as The Place Promised in our Early Days through to the beautiful Garden of Words, before his career truly exploded into life with Your Name and Weathering With You.

Until now, our Makoto Shinkai catalogue has contained a couple of notable gaps in the form of two titles that were unavailable to us, but today we’re beyond thrilled to confirm that this is no longer the case, and that Anime Limited is now the home of the entire Makoto Shinkai theatrical film catalogue.

cwclvfdb-announceYes, that’s right, we can now announce that both 5 Centimetres per Second and Children Who Chase Lost Voices From Deep Below (also known as Journey to Agartha) are now part of the Anime Limited catalogue, and both titles will be returning to the UK on Blu-ray from ourselves in due course. We’ll be announcing full details as and when we have them, but from the early planning stage we’re confident that you’ll want to get your hands on our edition of both films!

We hope you’re excited at the prospect of completing your collection of Mr. Shinkai’s major works with releases from ourselves, and stay tuned for full details as the rest of the year progresses!

With that little peek into the future, you now have all of the information you need to know about the UK & Ireland home video release of Weathering With You! Pre-order your copy today.


Signing out, and take care~!

    Saddened and angry that the better edition is "exclusive" to Zavvi - one of the worst UK film suppliers on the planet. On top of this, you make the Collector's Edition that was on Amazon, a waste of time too. This is a monumental failing on your part. You need to stop making exclusives with Zavvi. Do it via Amazon, that everyone can order from, and most people can trust!

    I like almost everything from this post. But I really hate exclusives, if you had to have an exclusive I would have preferred you kept it yourself or amazon in this case amazon would have been the lesser of two evils. I dislike greatly being forced to buy from Zavvi. They've gone down hill in recent years. I hope you reconsider so I won't have to buy from Zavvi. Also I'm really glad to hear about the other movies coming to your collection.
