GKIDS has announced that it has acquired the North American distribution rights for The Case of Hana & Alice, Genius Party, Genius Party Beyond, and Summer Days with Coo. The company will release the anime on home video in 2019.

The Case of Hana & Alice (Hana to Alice Satsujin Jiken) opened in Japan in February 2015 as Shunji Iwai’s animated prequel to his 2004 live-action coming-of-age film Hana & Alice.

Genius Party is an anthology of short films produced by Studio 4℃ and featuring directors such as Koji Morimoto, Shinichiro Watanabe, Shoji Kawamori, Masaaki Yuasa, and Mahiro Maeda. The anthology was split into two parts—Genius Party and Genius Party Beyond — which opened in 2007 and 2008, respectively.

Keiichi Hara directed the 2007 anime film, Summer Days with Coo, at Shin-Ei Animation.
