Saw this in Tokyo in January--thought it was brilliant.

Glad to see it got picked up in the States.

Hope this gets a digital release soon. It only played for a week here and I hate that I missed it.

This is currently $11.99 at Best Buy, and Amazon has matched.

It's weird to have to download an app just to be able to watch one movie. I mean, it's on VUDU. Shout Factory couldn't include a VUDU key? I gotta download what looks to be a yoga app called VHX? They really want people to be signed up for their newsletter, don't they?

Yeah, I was hoping it was a VUDU or UV copy. I'm not downloading an app just for this one movie.

It's so cheap, and has excellent reviews. I think I'll go pick up a copy tomorrow. I looked at a screenshot, and immediately thought of Setsuko from Grave of the Fireflies, which is one of my favorite anime.

Here's the thing about Shout Factory digital codes.

If you redeem your code on Shout Factory you can download DRM-Free video (in .mp4 format) in a variety of resolution options for your personal use. In the player of your choice. IMO, this makes these digital redemptions far more preferable to being locked on VUDU or Movies Anywhere. IMO

Bought this and Your Name at Wal-Mart about 3 weeks ago, and I finally watched it yesterday.
It was pretty good, especially for the price I paid. ( it was almost $10 less than Your Name was.)
However, I do kind of agree with DVDtalk's review.

Aside from its commitment to detail, In This Corner of the World's greatest asset is the optimistic tone and outlook in the midst of death, destruction, and chaos. It's a good film with good intentions that would've been great with a more efficient pace and, dare I say, less characters: since its cast isn't exactly burdened by reality, streamlining its focus by eliminating several major and minor characters would've been an improvement. In This Corner of the World also includes at least half a dozen short scenes (many of which are less than a minute each) that focus on small moments that rarely add much to the story: these often feel more confusing than essential and, combined with the film's episodic jumps forward in time, tend to cripple its overall momentum.

The Blu-ray also comes with a 16-page preview of the manga it was based on.

So you can't just redeem it on iTunes or Google Play for example?

You have to watch it on an app specifically for this movie?

That's dumb!

I watched this last night and thought it was excellent.

It's a slice of life film that's like a mashup of a coming-of-age story and Grave of the Fireflies. The animation is beautiful. The characters are interesting. The film covers a large timespan and does so as briskly as it can. Some may feel the film is slow but that's because there is a lot of character development, attention to detail, and world-building.

By the time things hit the fan, so to speak, I felt very invested in the characters and what they were experiencing.

This film is thought-provoking and will hit you with all the feelings. Have tissues ready and even better if you have somebody else to watch with you so you can discuss the film afterward.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in animation, history, war, or a good story.

I kind of regret already owning the initial Blu-ray release now. (just a little)

Is there any news on a home release containing the extended version of this film? I enjoyed it the first time and would like to rewatch with the new scenes. It doesn't show up on Amazon Japan, so I thought I'd ask here.
