Anime Limited acquires Napping Princess for UK theatrical release this summer


Anime Limited acquires Napping Princess for UK theatrical release this summer

Posted 20/03/2017


There's currently so much theatrical anime coming our way that we're considering moving the UK Anime office into a tent outside our local cinema, and further evidence that this might actually be a good move has arrived today from Anime Limited, who have announced a further theatrical acquisition to receive a UK airing later this year.

The film in question is Napping Princess, the latest film to come from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex director Kenji Kamiyama. Anime Limited themselves describe the film thus:

This fender and genre-bending film takes us into the not-too-distant machine-driven future. Kokone should be diligently studying for her university entrance exams, but she just can’t seem to stay awake. Aside from stealing precious study time, her napping is even more distracting, as it brings on strange dreams with warring machines that hint at family secrets that have been dormant for years. She can’t ask her father, a hipster mechanic more talented and artful than his job requires, as he’s always busy modifying motorcycles and cars in flights of fancy. What are these visions that lead Kokone at once closer to and farther away from her family? Like all the best anime, the film revels in multilayered fantasy to show how sometimes opposites—waking and dreaming, the past and the future—are far more intertwined than they appear.

The film is currently set for a UK theatrical release sometime this summer, with all screenings planned in Japanese with English subtitles. Yen Press are currently publishing the manga spin-off of the film in English, as reported here.

You can find all of the details of these theatrical plans on the All the Anime Blog.
