Update - An earlier version of this article said that Anime Limited released a Collector's Blu-ray/DVD of the film Over The Sky on May 7. However, Anime Limited has confirmed to ANN that its edition of Over The Sky has been delayed to June 19.

On Monday May 7, Anime Limited will release a standard Blu-ray edition of Atsuko Ishizuka and Madhouse's film Goodbye, Don Glees!

A Collector's Blu-ray/DVD edition of the film is already available; it includes the film's soundtrack on CD, a 16-page booklet, two A3 replica posters and an individually numbered and serialised art card.

The story centres on two boys named Rōma and Toto. The boys meet when Rōma moves from Tokyo to the countryside, which he cannot grow accustomed to. But when he meets Toto, they become a duo, naming themselves "Don Glees." Eventually, Toto was supposed to move out to Tokyo for school, but on the summer of their first year of high school, they meet Drop, a new addition to Don Glees, who invites them to "view the world from above." When Rōma and Toto follow Drop, they become involved in a forest fire that gets blamed on them, and go off in search of a missing drone that has evidence of their innocence. A small incident becomes an important, life-changing journey that culminates in Iceland.

Ayano Okamoto was the art director of the film, while Eiko Tsunadō and Akihiro Hirasawa were credited for art setting. Saho Yamane collaborated on the art board production. Harue Ono was the color key artist. Yūki Kawashita was the compositing director of photography. Shigenori Hirozumi and Kana Imagaki were the 3D directors. Kashiko Kimura was the editor. Yoshiaki Fujisawa (No Game, No Life Zero, A Place Further Than the Universe, Revue Starlight) composed the music. Jin Aketagawa was the audio director, while Tsutomu Ueno handled the sound effects.

Ishizuka (A Place Further Than the Universe, No Game, No Life Zero, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou) directed the anime and wrote the script, and Takahiro Yoshimatsu (A Place Further Than the Universe, Hunter × Hunter, Trigun) designed the characters.

Anime Limited will also release a standard Blu-ray edition of the Kyoto Animation film Liz and the Blue Bird, directed by Naoko Yamada.
