Aniplex of America Announces anohana -The Flower We Saw That Day- TV Series Complete Blu-ray Box Set

Aniplex of America has announced that they will be releasing a Complete Blu-ray Box Set of the anohana – The Flower We Saw That Day – television anime series. The box set will include an English dub featuring Xanthe Huynh as Menma, Erica Lindbeck as Anaru, Ray Chase as Yukiatsu, Erica Mendez as Tsuruko, Kaiji Tang as Poppo, and Griffin Burns as Jintan. The dub is adapted and directed by Patrick Seitz. Pre-orders are being taken now, and the box set will be available on October 31, 2017.

anohana –The Flower We Saw That Day– TV series features an all-star creative team including director Tatsuyuki Nagai, screenwriter Mari Okada, and character designer Masayoshi Tanaka. The box set includes a 60-page deluxe booklet, rigid box, and package illustrated by Mr. Tanaka.

Carl Kimlinger of Anime News Network in a 2012 review of the series writes, “As a test of one’s manly emotional reserve it is pretty much unequaled. But it’s also winning and often darkly funny, incisive and frequently subtle. As an ensemble drama it’s a match for all but the finest character studies, and as a study of grief and healing it is very nearly the equal of Mitsuru Adachi’s baseball masterpieces.”

The English dub premiered at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California in July 2017, where attendees received a special anohana tissue pack as an homage to the series’ tear-inducing episodes. Following the screening was a panel with the English dub cast, who were surprised with a hilarious blooper reel by English dub producer Sawako Furuya of Aniplex of America.

“I’ve had anohana on the brain ever since I first saw the sub-only release back in 2012, but the thought of it ever getting dubbed after the fact was such a long-shot, it was basically a dream,” says English dub director Patrick Seitz. “The irony isn’t lost on me that one of anohana‘s plot points involves fulfilling a wish from five years ago—and getting to dub it was the fulfillment of my own five-year-old wish.”

English Dub of anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day to Premiere at Anime Expo

Aniplex of America has announced that its English dub of anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day will premiere at Anime Expo. The screening will take place at 6:30 p.m. PDT on July 2, 2017.

NIS America licensed and released the television anime in 2012 and again in 2013. Aniplex of America partnered with Eleven Arts to screen the film in theaters in the United States, and then released the film on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. Crunchyroll streamed the anime in 2012.
