Thank you, Funimation!
Chances are it won’t be a dubbed release (I’m guessing it’ll be similar to what Funi did with Shin Godzilla a couple of weeks ago), but it seems to be that this is a run up of sorts for the film to get an Academy Award nomination. As it should, with the never ending praise, and also considering it’s one of the highest grossing anime films of all time, earning $160 million solely from Japan, in just two months.
Just gotta hang on a little longer... and not give in to the hype...
