Wow. Shocked

I never expected to see Viz Media nab the Home video rights to this Netflix licensed anime film. I actually was expecting Sentai Filmworks to license this movie given that they have the home video licensing the other Netflix anime properties developed by Polygon Pictures (Knights of Sidonia, Ajin), and Viz simply is more interested on focusing on other anime series that can add revenue.

So now Viz Media joins Sentai Filmworks and FUNimation (Seven Deadly Sins) to license whichever Netflix anime series/film for home video distribution.

This is the third unexpected license made by Viz Media and their fourth anime license this year. Seems they broke their 2-3 anime license per year rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. 2014: The original Sailor Moon Uncut and Sailor Moon Crystal, Doraemon (The 2005 anime series with dub) - 3

2. 2015: The Sequel to K, One-Punch Man, and Hunter x Hunter - 3, 2 if you simply count OPM and HxH

3. 2016: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable and the rest of the JoJo's anime series, Terra-Formars - 2

4. 2017: Boruto, Mr. Osomatsu, Infini-T Force, and Blame! (home video rights) - 4 (as of this moment)
