GKIDS, Shout! Factory Set Digital, Disc Release Dates for ‘Goodbye, Don Glees!’

GKIDS and Shout! Factory have announced the Dec. 13 release of Goodbye, Don Glees!, a coming-of-age anime film from writer and director Atsuko Ishizuka (No Game, No Life, Prince Stride: Alternative).

The film will initially be available for digital download on Dec. 13, with a Blu-Ray + DVD combo release following on Dec. 27.

The first original feature from Ishizuka, Goodbye, Don Glees! follows the story of teen misfits Roma, Toto, and Drop, who call themselves the “Don Glees,” an informal name for their backyard adventure. One day, when the trio gets blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. As disaster strikes, tensions flare between the friends as they realize that growing up has taken them on wildly different paths in life.

The film screened at various major film festivals, including the Annecy International Film Festival, the Tokyo International Film Festival, and Fantasia Fest.

Bonus features include an interview with director Ishizuka, as well as trailers for the film.
