Satellite Girl and Milk Cow
GKIDS and Shout! Factory have announced the release of the charming fantasy/science fiction romance Satellite Girl and Milk Cow on Blu-ray/DVD on June 5, 2018. Bonus features include the short film Coffee Vending Machine And Its Sword, and trailers.
The debut feature-length film from Korean director Chang Hyung-yun, acclaimed creator of animated short films that have premiered and won prizes at festivals worldwide, the highly original Satellite Girl and Milk Cow was produced by Cho Young-kag (The Fake, The King of Pigs), and received an Asia Pacific Screen Award nomination for Best Animated Feature.
An out of commission satellite picks up a lovelorn ballad on her radio antenna and descends to Earth to find the source of such sincere emotions. But on the way she is caught in a raging magical battle and transforms into Satellite Girl, complete with rocket shoes and weapon-firing limbs. Meanwhile, the balladeer in question – a loser twentysomething at a café open mic – meets the fate that befalls all broken-hearted lovers: he is turned into a farm animal. But love knows no bounds, and aided by the wise and powerful Merlin – a wizard who has been turned into a roll of toilet paper – our duo must evade the all-consuming incinerator monster, the wily pig witch, and other nefarious adversaries in an attempt to be together.
· Coffee Vending Machine And Its Sword Short Film
This anime show is intended for kids that are ages 12 and up. Don’t mistake this for a children’s cartoon. I would say that it’s an animated science fiction/fantasy romance and would definitely appeal to a younger teenage audience. Adults may find the premise slightly odd considering a satellite girl, the boy milk cow, and the toilet paper wizard. But, that is honestly what makes this so much fun to watch. If you’re a fan of anime, or you have younger teens that are, I’d definitely consider adding this to your library. Check out the video above to get a look what the movie is about. Buy it today.
