New releases by Manga Entertainment

On Monday October 7, Manga Entertainment will release the Okko's Inn (Waka Okami wa Shōgakusei!) anime film on Blu-ray and DVD. GKIDS previously described the film:

After losing her parents in a car accident, Okko goes to live in the countryside with her grandmother, who runs a traditional inn near an ancient spring said to have healing waters. Okko soon discovers there are spirits living there only she can see – welcoming ghosts who keep her company, play games and help her navigate her new environment. Okko strives to be a gracious host, and this is soon put to the test by a string of challenging guests with different stories. But ultimately Okko discovers that dedicating herself to others becomes the key to taking care of herself, in this beautiful tale from Kitaro Kosaka, who was a key animator on numerous classic films at the venerable Studio Ghibli.

The film is based on writer Hiroko Reijō and artist Asami's juvenile literature series. DLE and Madhouse animated the film; Kitaro Kousaka (A-Girl, Nasu: Summer in Andalusia) directed. Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, The Cat Returns, Girls und Panzer) wrote the script.

Manga Entertainment will also release the final DVD box-set of Naruto Shippūden, Box 38, carrying episodes 487 to 500 of the series.
