Huh, does this even have a scheduled home video release in Japan? Or will this be another rare case where the US releases it first?

It's a TV movie in Japan, so at the least, the theatrical release is new.

Loving that turnaround. I’m not convinced I need to own a single Goro flick (will check it out on Max), but if they can keep up comparable release dates for Hayao and Yonebayashi works (after their JP BDs ofc), I will immediately eat those up.

Child actress Kokoro Hirasawa (live-action BLEACH) as Earwig (Aya in the Japanese version)

I wonder why Earwig was renamed "Aya" in the Japanese version of the movie and the novel.

So far, there isn't a scheduled home video release in Japan, so this might end up being a case of the US releasing it first.
