liz and the blue birdFrom the masters at Kyoto Animation, the stunning Liz and the Blue Bird anime film is coming to select theaters across the United States on November 9. You can check your local listings for showings and pick up tickets today, and we have something very special to offer as part of a Liz and the Blue Bird giveaway.

We have three (3) exclusive film strips from Liz and the Blue Bird available to our readers thanks to our friends at ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio.

These are some pretty rare items straight from Japan, and all you have to do for a chance to get one of your own is head to our contest page and fill out the form!


Mizore Yoroizuka plays the oboe, and Nozomi Kasaki plays the flute in Kita Uji High School concert band. As seniors, this will be their last competition together, and the selected piece “Liz and the Blue Bird” features a duet for the oboe and flute. “This piece reminds me of us.” Nozomi says cheerfully, enjoying the solo, while Mizore’s usual happiness to play with Nozomi is tinged with the dread of their inevitable parting. By all accounts the girls are best friends, but the oboe and flute duet sounds disjointed, as if underscoring a growing distance between them. Talk of college creates a small rift in their relationship, as the story evolves to reveal a shocking and emotional conclusion.

Enter now! We have three to give away, and we’ll let winners know between now and the film’s U.S. opening!
