When will Suzume come out for Blue Ray release?

Suzume no Tojimari is Shinkai’s 13th directorial work, following Weathering with You’s release in 2019, where the movie won “Animation of the Year” at the 43rd Japan Academy Film Awards. It is a 2022 Japanese animated fantasy adventure film written and directed by Makoto Shinkai revolving around a 17-year-old high school student Suzume Iwato and a mysterious (and handsome) stranger Souta Munakata, who team up to prevent a series of disasters across Japan.

What is the plot of the show?

  • One night, Suzume dreams of searching for her mother as a child in a ruined neighborhood. Still flustered from her dream, while headed for school the next day, Suzume encounters a young man searching for abandoned areas with doors.
  • She tells him about an old onsen resort nearby, but her curiosity gets the best of her and she ends up following the man to the resort.

Upon reaching the abandoned resort, she finds a door standing alone on its frame, which shows a starlit field through the doorway, but she is unable to enter it. Looking for a lever of sorts, she picks up a cat statue which becomes a real cat and flees from her grasp. Shaken and confused, she runs of out the resort and goes back to school.

The next day, Suzume returns to the door and finds that it is now open. She steps through the door and finds herself in a strange, otherworldly place. She meets Souta again, who tells her that she is the only one who can close the doors. She and Souta set out on a journey across Japan, closing the doors and preventing the disasters that they are causing.

Along the way, Suzume meets a variety of people, including a young woman named Akari, who is searching for her lost brother, and an old man named Tokito, who tells her stories about the doors. Suzume also learns more about her own past and about the connection between the doors and her mother. As the duo closes the doors, they begin to see the world in a new way. They realize that the doors are not just a threat, but also a symbol of hope. The doors represent the possibility of new beginnings, and the chance to heal the wounds of the past.

Suzume and Souta eventually reach the last door, which is located in a remote mountain village. The door is guarded by a giant cat, and Suzume must use all of her strength and courage to close it. Once the door is closed, the disasters stop, and the world is at peace.

Suzume returns to her hometown, where she is reunited with her aunt. She knows that something has shifted, almost as if she is returning as a new and better person armed with a new understanding of the world. She knows that the doors are still out there and that she must be prepared to face them again. But she also knows that she is not alone and that she has the strength to overcome any challenge.
