Suzume no Tojimari became a huge blockbuster and grossed over $320 million worldwide earlier this year. As a result, it is one of the top anime films and the highest-grossing film to be released in 2023. Since its release, it has been the talk of the town and fans have been waiting for the digital release. But the time has finally come, as Crunchyroll has announced the streaming release date for Suzume.
Suzume no Tojimari Streaming Release Date
Suzume is undoubtedly a feather in Makoto Shinkai’s cap, and you can read us in depth Suzume review here. If you missed the theatrical release, you can finally stream Suzume on Crunchyroll at November 16 at 5:00 PM PT. Furthermore, it has also been confirmed that the film will be available for streaming exclusively on Crunchyroll.
This is a big win for anime fans. But unfortunately, there is news to worry about as this movie is only available in specific regions and is not a worldwide release. The confirmed locations where the Suzume movie will be available to stream are North America, Central America, South America, Europe (excluding France), Africa, Oceania, the Middle East countries and the CIS.
Suzume is not released for the Indian audience
Suzume was a special film for the Indian anime community as creator Makoto Shinkai himself graced the theaters to interact with the fans. Consequently, the film ended up as the highest grossing anime film of all time in India. This is a testament to how well Suzume was received by Indian fans.
However, you won’t be able to enjoy the magic of Shinkai on our digital screens as Suzume won’t be available to stream on Crunchyroll in India. And now Crunchyroll’s decision to ignore the Indian fans and not add this film to the Indian library is a disappointing move.
