Film opened in Japan in November, had 4DX, MX4D screenings in February

Kadokawa's Famitsu.com website reported on Friday that the Kantai Collection: KanColle anime film earned a total of 560 million yen (about US$5 million) after finishing its March screenings in Japan.

The film's Blu-ray Disc and DVD release in Japan is slated for August 30. The limited edition version of the releases will feature edited and new scenes that were not shown in the film's original screening.

The film opened in Japan in November. The film sold 70,000 tickets for over 100 million yen (about US$856,000) on 60 screens in its first weekend, and ranked at #5 during its debut weekend. The film began 4DX and MX4D screenings in Japan on February 11.

Shinichiro Inoue reprised his role from the television anime series as chief production supervisor for the film, and Keizō Kusakawa returned from the television series to direct the film at diomedéa. Kensuke Tanaka, who is credited with the original plan and concept, also wrote the film's script alongside Jukki Hanada.

The TV anime series premiered in January 2015 and Crunchyroll streamed it as it aired in Japan. The series is set in a world where humanity has lost control of the seas. The threat that has taken over the seas is the "deep sea fleet." The only ones who can counter this threat are Kan-musume (literally, warship girls), girls who possess the spirit of naval vessels from days gone by.

The base for the fleet arrayed against the "deep sea fleet" is Chinjufu. There, many various Kan-musume have gathered to live together and work hard everyday in training and other matters. One day, a Kan-musume arrives at Chinjufu. She is a special class of destroyer, and her name is Fubuki.

Funimation will release the television series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with English subtitles and an English dub on June 27. Funimation is releasing the series as the second home video title in its partnership with Crunchyroll.
