Kokkoku VisualEarlier today, Section23 Films unveiled their April 2019 release calendar. In the lineup, they revealed that Sentai Filmworks picked up the rights to Kokkoku.

A Blu-Ray release of the series is planned for April 16, which will include an English dub as well as the subtitled version of the show. The title will be priced at $69.98 when it ships to stores.

Kokkoku aired in the Winter 2018 broadcast season. The title streamed exclusively on Amazon Prime when it aired.

Yoshimitsu Ohashi (Witchblade, Galaxy Angel) was tapped to direct the show at Geno Studio, with Masaki Hinata providing character designs. Noboru Kimura (Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!, Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~) was in charge of series composition for the project.

Section23 Films describes Kokkoku as:

Juri Yukawa needs a timeout from her life. She’s failed 19 job interviews, she’s stuck living with her crazy family, and her chances of escaping to a life of her own are becoming increasingly remote. Suddenly, all of that becomes unimportant when her brother and nephew are kidnapped and held for an impossibly high ransom. That’s when Juri’s grandfather reveals an incredible secret: a mystical stone that allows Juri, her father and her Grandpa to enter the state of Stasis, where everyone else in the world is frozen in time! That should make rescuing their family easy, right? Wrong, because there’s a sinister organization working against them who also can literally beat the clock! It’s not a race against time, it’s a race outside of time and the dangers are increasing with every non-second in KOKKUKO!
