"producer Genki Kawamura follows up his mega-hit your name."

I like how they act like he had really anything to do with Kimi no na wa.'s success

GKIDS is not who I expected to pick this up. I'll watch it tho

Saw this during the UK release last year, trash movie. Worst anime that released here last year.

I wonder if GKIDS could get their hands on the actual live-action special to be put at least as a special feature on the eventual Blu-ray.

GKIDS passed on Your Name. before it was released. They've been sore about it ever since.

Arrg! I was hoping G-Kids would get Mutafukaz. That movie looks awesome!

I wouldn't mind seeing the live-action version that preceeded it.

Not really untested in this movie. Probably one of the less interesting things in GKids catalog. Glad they're distributing more movies though.

Did they? As far as I know they just got outbid, which happens quite frequently to distribution companies.
