Anime Film ‘Napping Princess’ to be Released on Home Video!

Posted in: Anime News

For those who haven’t watched the anime movie Napping Princess, here is some good news for you! Anime Limited recently revealed details that they will be releasing the film for Blu-ray/DVD on February 26. The combo edition will contain a 40-page booklet with Art Card.

An interview of Kenji Kamiyama, an introduction during the Japanese Premiere, and an extra on the Okayama scenery is included in the standard DVD edition. The standard Blu-ray edition will contain special interviews and TV Programme with the cast and a Greeting during the Japanese Release.

This is the first anime film production of Signal.MD, a new anime studio subsidiary of I.G Port directed and written by Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East).

Movie Synopsis (as described by The New York International Children’s Film Festival):

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.
