Sentai Filmworks has licensed all three 60-minute theatrical installments.

Sentai Filmworks digitally screened the film for a limited time in December 2020, and released it on Blu-ray Disc on February 2, 2021.

The story of the film is described as:

Twittering Birds Never Fly: The Clouds Gather –, the trilogy’s first installment, introduces two steely members of the Yakuza, each with secrets in their past, who occupy trusted and feared positions in the Japanese underworld. Recent parolee, Doumeki, is assigned to guard Yashiro, a mid-level enforcer who deals out daily doses of coercion, retribution and other criminal acts with brutal efficiency. But behind closed doors, their relationship quickly becomes psychologically and physically complicated. Theirs is a story entanglement, tension, power and control.
