Paprika Finally Gets a Release Date!

It was just a few days ago when we were longing to hear news of a release date, and it came today! Paprika is going to be released on both Blu-Ray and Standard DVD on November 27th. As if you haven’t read it on this blog already a hundred times, this movie stars two Seiyuu of Sailor Moon in leading roles – Megumi Hayashibara (Himeko) plays Dr. Atsuko Chiba, and Toru Furuya (Tuxedo Kamen) as Dr. Kosaku Tokita. And it looks like some of the extras that are on the Japanese release are coming as extras here too. There is a half-hour behind-the-scenes commentary that looks at the film and staff, A Conversation About The Dream, which features the cast and the director, Satoshi Kon, speaking about the film in the style of a talk show, along with another commentary. It’s nice to see this film released on the newer, higher definition Blu-Ray DVD format. This is great news as now Paprika fans don’t have to go to great lengths just to get the Blu-Ray from Japan!
