Anohana the Movie gets US, Canadian theater listing


It's okay to cry in public

Anohana the Movie is finally getting a list of theater screenings in the US and Canada. The first screenings begin January 18th, and Canada will start on February 9th. You can find the full list of theaters and dates at the Anohana the Movie site. For some theaters and screenings, tickets are already on sale!

Fans of the tear-jerker who wants to catch it on the big screen should not only prepare to bring some tissues to go to the theater, but also inquire about the bonus goods such as movie posters and "Letters from Menma" notes that Menma gave to her gang-mates in the story. Aniplex is giving them out in limited quantities much like their Madoka Rebellion screenings that gave out those small shikishi feature art prints of the characters.

It's understood that while the Anohana series is quite popular in Japan, it's a ways from how popular Madoka had become out West. That may explain why this movie didn't get the same treatment as Madoka Rebellion, complete with a Hollywood premiere and the like. Still, it's nice to see the movie getting an American screening just half a year after its initial run in Japan.
