posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The anime premiered in Japan in June 2013, and Funimation announced in July 2013 that it acquired rights to the film. The English-dubbed version premiered at Anime Expo this past July, and Funimation shipped the film on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in September.
The "near-future romance" film Hal follows a girl named Kurumi (voiced by Bryn Apprill in English) who lost Haru (Chris Burnett), a boy she liked, in a plane accident. A robot "Robo Hal (Haru)" turns into her substitute for Haru.
