Dubbing History

The film was originally dubbed into English by ADV Films using their Texas-based voice cast, and was planned for a DVD release in December 2007, but the release was delayed until March 2008. This dub was only in circulation for a few months, however, as in July 2008, ADV announced that they would be discontinuing their print of the DVD. Comix Wave Films later comissioned a new dub of the film to Bang Zoom! Entertainment, which first premiered on Crunchyroll as part of their Day of Makoto Shinkai on 28 February 2009. It was later released on DVD by Bandai Entertainment in 2011, by Discotek Media in 2015 and on Blu-Ray two years later.
