Anime Limited confirmed on its website that it has licensed the feature film Patema Inverted for the U.K. It will have a limited cinema release, as well as a release "as a Collector's Edition Blu-ray and DVD with a regular release of the film on Blu-ray and DVD at a later date."
During the stage introduction to Patema Inverted's screening at Scotland Loves Anime in Edinburgh, it was announced that the film had been picked up in the U.K. However, the identity of the licensor was not given.
Patema Inverted begins in an underground world where tunnels extend everywhere. Patema, a teenage girl, loves to explore the tunnels. On one exploration, though, she plunges into an abyss and finds herself in an astonishingly different world.
