Series will be released as Collector's Blu-ray in Q3 2019

Anime Limited announced that it has licensed the Kokkoku anime and plans to release it as a Collector's Edition Blu-ray in Q3 2019. It will have a rigid case, a Digipak containing the series on two discs, a poster featuring a piece of key artwork from the series, and five art cards.

The series is based on Seita Horio's Kokkoku: Moment by Moment manga. Sentai Filmworks has described the story:

Juri Yukawa needs a timeout from her life. She's failed 19 job interviews, she's stuck living with her crazy family, and her chances of escaping to a life of her own are becoming increasingly remote. Suddenly, all of that becomes unimportant when her brother and nephew are kidnapped and held for an impossibly high ransom. That's when Juri's grandfather reveals an incredible secret: a mystical stone that allows Juri, her father and her Grandpa to enter the state of Stasis, where everyone else in the world is frozen in time! That should make rescuing their family easy, right? Wrong, because there's a sinister organization working against them who also can literally beat the clock!

The anime premiered in January 2018 and streamed with English subtitles on Amazon Prime.

Yoshimitsu Ohashi (Witchblade, Sacred Seven, Galaxy Angel) directed the series at Geno Studio, and Twin Engine was credited with production. Noboru Kimura (Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!, Amagami SS+, Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they?) handled the series composition. Yasuomi Umetsu (Mezzo, Lily C.A.T., Kite) provided the original character designs, and Masaki Hinata (Sankarea: Undying Love, Qualidea Code, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!) adapted those designs for animation and also served as chief animation director. MICHIRU composed the music.
