Funimation will release the series on February 23 in both a limited edition and a regular edition Blu-ray Disc/DVD set. The company describes the story:
Rinka is a high school student in Tokyo trying to make ends meet while supporting herself and her father. Her ordinary life takes a turn for the extraordinary when she witnesses a penguin and a school of fish flying through the air. After catching up to one of the fish, she passes out and wakes up to find herself suddenly granted supernatural powers. With her newfound ability to walk through solid objects, Rinka is about to learn just how transparent the world can be.
The anime based on Hajime Segawa's (Ga-Rei) manga premiered in July 2014 and aired for 12 episodes. Shigehito Takayanagi directed the series at Xebec. Funimation streamed the series in North America as it aired, and Crunchyroll also streamed the series outside of North America.
Vertical has licensed Segawa's original manga, and the company will release the third volume in February.
