Toshiaki Toyoda’s (9 Souls 2003, Hanging Garden 2005) cult classic, Blue Spring, which was adapted from the famous manga, Aoi Haru, by Taiyo Matsumoto, is finally getting its world region-free Blu-ray! The film will debut on all region dual-formats on Blu-ray and DVD with collectible slipcase on May 13, 2019. The release features a new audio commentary by the director and a Making Of from the film’s original release.
One of the best examples of early 2000s Japanese cinema, Blue Spring is a brutal tale of youth anarchy in high school and launched the careers of many now popular actors such as Ryuhei Matsuda (The Raid 2 2014), Hirofumi Arai (100 Yen Love 2014) and Eita (Memories of Matsuko 2006).
