Lost in Translation
The North American distributor Bandai Entertainment has told ANN on Monday that "we do not have" Makoto Shinkai's acclaimed 5 Centimeters Per Second anime film, despite a report from the Fanboy Review website last week that Bang Zoom! Entertainment is re-dubbing the film for the distributor. ADV Films has confirmed on Monday that it "no longer holds the rights to 5 Centimeters Per Second." ADV Films notified retailers last July that it discontinued the title. ANN is awaiting a comment from Bang Zoom! Entertainment on whether it is re-dubbing the film.
