It’s (just over) SEVEN! weeks – see what we did there, Strictly fans 😉 – until our release of Welcome to the Ballroom: Part 2 struts it way onto Blu-ray! Admittedly this release has been in the works for a while, but it’s nearly here and we’ve got all the details about what to expect from this release that’s our on 20th April 2020!
Plus, we have a special offer on pre-ordering this (and saving on Part 1, if you don’t already have that) at our AllTheAnime shop to tell you about as well.
A quick refresher on what the series is about for those unaware.
ABOUT WELCOME TO THE BALLROOM
Synopsis: “Middle school student Tatara Fujita is a young man living a directionless existence – desperate to change and find a true calling to pursue though he is, there’s simply nothing in his life to provide the spark that he needs to ignite his passions.
All of this changes one day when Tatara spots a fellow student entering the door of the Ogasawara Dance Studio. Saved from bullies by a cool, calm and collected stranger, the next thing Tatara knows he’s dragged into the studio for an impromptu trial and is transfixed by a whole new world – a world of supreme confidence borne from an upright posture… of almost inhuman body movements and gyrations… of talented dancers shouting out to the world to look at them.
There’s no doubting Tatara’s determination to look good on the dance floor, but does he have what it takes to make a name for himself in the cut-throat realm of professional ballroom dancing? With professional and personal rivalries to deal with, and a cornucopia of new demands both mental and physical providing plenty of new challenges, it’s going to take more than sheer will to reach the heights of the competitive ballroom scene. As he makes friends and mentors along the way, Tatara soon learns that it takes far more than two to tango.”
Director: Yoshimi Itazu (Pigtails)
Studio: Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell, Haikyu!!, Kuroko’s Basketball)
