Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna US Home Video Release DelayedDelays, delays, delays. Seems like that’s all we’re writing about these days. Today’s delay is of a release a lot of folks around here were no doubt looking forward to: the US home video release of Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna.

The film, which hit Japanese theaters February 21, was set to be released July 7 through Shout Factory in a combination DVD and Blu-ray pack. But thanks to reporting from ANN, we now know that date will be pushed back.

Fathom Events and Toei had planned to screen the film in US theaters this March, but called off those screenings due to, well, you know.

Hopefully Shout Factory’s release will hit retailers before too long, and we can cry our eyes out watching Last Evolution Kizuna just like fans in Japan did.

Here’s how Shout Factory describes the film:

Tai is now a university student, living alone, working hard at school, and working every day, but with his future still undecided. Meanwhile, Matt and others continue to work on Digimon incidents and activities that help people with partner Digimon. An unprecedented phenomenon occurs and the DigiDestined discover that when you grow up, your relationship with your partner Digimon will come closer to an end. As a countdown timer activates on the Digivice, they realize that the more you fight with their Partner Digimon, the faster their bond breaks. Will you fight for others and lose your partner? The time to choose and decide is approaching fast. There is a short time before “chosen children” will become adults. This is the last adventure of Tai and Agumon.
