posted on by Andrew Osmond
Otaku News has posted a press release from Studio Canal, announcing the release of Mamoru Hosoda's fantasy adventure film The Boy and the Beast on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on September 4. The press release links to pre-orders on Amazon.
On its limited cinema release, the film was rated '12' in Britain for moderate violence and mild bad language. The American distributor Funimation describes the story:
When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he's taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who's been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.
