This Monday, 8th of December 2014 sees the UK release of Giovanni’s Island on DVD and ‘Ultimate Edition’ from Anime Limited. Anime Reporter reviewed the film during its festival premiere some time back and I have to say, it’s more than worth a look. If you’d like to find out just why that is, feel free to check out the original review here.
If that floats your boat, you might also be interested in a look at Anime Reporter’s interview with Mizuho Nishikubo, the Director of Giovanni’s Island.
If you urgently need a great piece of animated cinema to watch without the time to read my full verdict, let it suffice to say that this film is a masterpiece… but you’ll still have to wait until Monday for the DVD.
