GKIDS AND SHOUT! FACTORY PRESENT
THE CASE OF HANA & ALICE
SEPTEMBER 17, 2019
“Funny and engaging! A highly likable film about hugely likable teens.”
– Andrew Osmond, Anime News Network
The Case of Hana & Alice was directed by Shunji Iwai, a very highly-regarded Japanese indie filmmaker. Anne Suzuki and Yû Aoi, the voices of Hana and Alice, also played Hana and Alice in the Japanese live-action film. The animated film is considered a prequel to the live-action version. It has played in a variety of festivals, including Annecy in France (Best Feature Nominee), Shanghai International Film Festival (Best Animation Film Nominee), Fantasia International Film Festival (Bronze Audience Award Winner), Sitges Film Festival, and Animation Is Film.
Los Angeles, CA – The marvelous anime film The Case of Hana & Alice will be available in North America for the first time on September 17, when it comes to Blu-ray™ from GKIDS and Shout! Factory. The release includes over two hours of bonus features, including a greeting from the film’s premiere and a message from animator Makoto Shinkai that are exclusive to the physical release.
When Alice transfers to a new middle school, she hears an urban legend about a student who disappeared the previous year and is suspected to have been killed by his fellow students. Even worse, Alice discovers that she lives next door to his former house, a supposedly haunted home, now occupied by a reclusive classmate named Hana.
Hana and Alice decide to investigate this “murder case” together, but soon find that their lack of detective skills may be an obstacle. This unusual and charming film from famed writer-director Shunji Iwai is a shaggy-dog mystery tale that ultimately gives way to a wonderfully nuanced story of young female friendship, and the fantasies and thrills of everyday teenage life.
