Exclusive Clip: ‘Summer Ghost’ Appears on Blu-ray/Digital Today

Today (Nov. 1), the beautifully animated directorial debut of acclaimed illustrator loundraw, Summer Ghost, is summoned to home video on Blu-ray and Digital from GKIDS, with distribution by Shout! Factory. To celebrate the release, Animation Magazine is pleased to debut an exclusive clip, which shows how our teen heroes’ poignant, supernatural adventure begins.

Synopsis: An urban legend says that lighting fireworks at an abandoned airfield will beckon the “summer ghost,” a spirit that can answer any question. Three teenagers, Tomoya, Aoi and Ryo, each have their own reason to show up one day. When a ghost named Ayane appears, she reveals she is only visible to those “who are about to touch their death.” Compelled by the ghost and her message, Tomoya begins regularly visiting the airfield to uncover the true purpose of her visits.

As previously announced, the release includes the To You Before Dawn documentary, feature animatic and interview with loundraw as bonus features.

Summer Ghost features original character designs by loundraw (BUMP OF CHICKEN “Until Dreams Awaken”; illustration for I Want to Eat Your Pancreas) and is produced by his animation shop FLAT STUDIO, established in 2019. The screenplay is by Hirotaka “Otsuichi” Adachi, soundtrack by Akira Kosemura.
