Producer indicates plans at first anniversary screening
Though TV series get finalized for home video releases, anime tends not to have "deleted scenes" or "director's cuts" (beyond versions with content editing removed). Despite this, In This Corner Of The World has been a critical and commercial success, and, in a first anniversary screening of the Sunao Katabuchi feature anime adaptation of Fumiyo Kōno's manga about a woman living through the war years and the atomic bombing, Taro Maki says that the rumored extended version will be presented.
Specific plans for a release of the extended version that Sunao Katabuchi is working are are to be announced.
