Madman licenses K-ON! movie

So, Madman Entertainment has announced the license of the K-ON! movie for distribution in Australia, to my knowledge the first license of the movie to an English speaking market. According to the announcement, the film will screen at the Japan Film Festival this December in Sydney and Melbourne, with a home video release to follow in 2013.

The question remains, how much longer will it be before a similar announcement is made from a North American distributor?


  1. This gives hope for a North American release. At least I hope it gives hope.

  2. Double exclamation marks left intact, collector's box, movie screening and first to license the movie. God bless you Madman.

  3. Now that I've seen the movie at the cinema, I should note that the feels are elevated at least 10 fold. I've re-watched this Movie so many times but watching it in the cinema felt like an entirely different experience with the giant screen and booming speakers. I enjoyed it even more than the first time I watched it. If K-On comes out in cinemas in your neck of the woods, I highly recommend you see it. Especially if you haven't already seen it. But even if you have, just watch it again

    1. I envy you. I would love to see the movie on the big screen. Never going to happen though... :(
