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

GKIDS and Shout! Factory have announced Goodbye, Don Glees!, a coming-of-age anime film from writer and director Atsuko Ishizuka (No Game, No Life, Prince Stride: Alternative), will be available for digital download Dec. 13. A Blu-ray + DVD combo release follows 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.
