Those of you who - for various, law-bending reasons - have been dying to get your hands on the home video edition of the K-ON! Movie
, can now mark your calendars for July 18. That's when the anime film's Blu-ray and DVD version will be released
in Japan and, no doubt, leaked outside its borders shortly thereafter.
The K-ON! Movie originally premiered in Japanese theaters last winter, on December 3. And by early February, it had earned
1.7 billion yen ($20.8 million) in ticket sales. Like the two TV anime series that preceded it in 2009
, the film was created by studio Kyoto Animation (KyoAni).
The movie's story follows the same five girls from Sakuragaoka High School's light music club. As graduation draws near for Yui, Ritsu, Mio and Tsumugi, they - together with Azusa - decide to go on a post-graduation trip... to London!
