PROMARE, Your Name, and more anime hit Showcase at Home Service

A hefty catalogue of anime feature films have become available for rent and purchase on Showcase at Home, a digital storefront operated by the cinema chain of the same name. All but one of the films available in their anime selection (at time of writing) have been released either theatrically or on home video by Anime Limited, and cost either £3.49 to rent or £7.99 to buy (with the exception of PROMARE, which costs £4.49 and £8.99, respectively). The list of currently available titles, is as follows:

  • A Letter to Momo
  • Belladonna of Sadness
  • Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry
  • Fireworks
  • Giovanni’s Island
  • Jin-Roh
  • K: Missing Kings
  • Mai Mai Miracle
  • Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms
  • Mary and the Witch’s Flower
  • Mind Game
  • Momotaro – Sacred Sailors
  • Patema Inverted

  • Persona 3 The Movie 4: Winter of Rebirth
  • Psychic School Wars
  • Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise
  • Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale
  • Your Name

The website’s banner image also contains a screenshot from Science SARU’s Lu Over the Wall, but as of writing, the film is unobtainable on the service.

Films purchased from Showcase at Home are in their original Japanese language with English subtitles by default, but those that have English language dubs have them included, where they can be accessed as bonus content. A rental period is 14 days overall with a 48 hours playback period, meaning that you have 14 days to start the film, but once you press play, you have 48 hours to watch the film as many times as you like.

You can view their catalogue and purchase titles at their website. Showcase at Home can be viewed either on a desktop, or apps for iOS and Android. For playback on a TV, the service suggests using AirPlay or Chromecast to project one of the mobile apps to the larger screen.
