Sentai Filmworks has announced that the company has acquired the license for the Colorful anime film. The company says it will be releasing the film on bilingual DVD and Blu-ray Disc and through digital outlets “soon.”

The film is described as:

Upon arriving at the train station of death, an impure soul is granted a second chance at life against his will. Reincarnating into the body of Makoto Kobayashi, a 14-year-old boy who recently committed suicide, the soul is tasked to identify the boy’s greatest sin in life within a time limit of six months. Although it remains reluctant toward continuing life as Makoto, the soul soon begins to notice the complexities of people’s emotions and actions.

Deconstructing the ideas of fractured families and suicide, Colorful explores the intricacies of the daily struggles humans face but are too abashed to confront.

Colorful opened in Japanese theaters on August 21, 2010.
