Satoshi Kon’s Anime Classic ‘Tokyo Godfathers’ Makes Its Blu-Ray Debut This June

Shout Factory & GKIDS have announced they will be releasing Satoshi Kon’s 2003 hit Tokyo Godfathers for the first time on Blu-Ray in the US on June 2, 2020. Kon has directed other critically acclaimed classics such as Perfect Blue and Millennium Actress.

Synopsis: In modern-day Tokyo, three homeless people’s lives are changed forever when they discover a baby girl at a garbage dump on Christmas Eve. As the New Year fast approaches, these three forgotten members of society band together to solve the mystery of the abandoned child and the fate of her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together.

Heartbreaking, hilarious and highly original, Tokyo Godfathers is a humanist masterpiece from the legendary director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Perfect Blue), and a tale of hope and redemption in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
