Hal Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD
About Hal Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD
The limited edition of Hal includes a slipcover artbox and three alternate covers with exclusive artwork that also double as mini-posters on the other side.
Kurumi's heart was broken by the sudden death of her boyfriend in a tragic airplane accident. Forced to carry on without her beloved Hal, she fell into a reclusive and joyless existence. Kurumi had given up on the world, but a brilliant scientist devised a plan to win her back. By melding futuristic technology with the binary equivalent of human emotion, they created an ultra-lifelike robotic surrogate to take Hal's place - and lure Kurumi from her shroud of solitude.
Resistant at first, this shattered beauty slowly yielded to her feelings of longing and took comfort in the company of a robot. Though their unique bond grew stronger with each passing day, Kurumi and Hal would soon discover that nothing about their artificial love story was quite as it seemed.

Ratings & Reviews
Beautiful Tale of Life and Death
by Crystal -
Hal is gorgeously animated and artfully told. The score was beautiful and matched the story perfectly. I watched the dub version and it was well done. The story of Hal and his girlfriend Kurumi is full of sadness but also love and joy. It sits at just an hour, and I wish it would have been longer but the delivery is on key so you can enjoy the film for the time it runs. Not much can be said without spoiling it, but if you are in want of a beautiful romantic drama and a good cry, this movie is for you.
One of the best animes I've watched
by Emily -
I absolutely loved this anime, It had beautiful animation with a nice story. I was looking everywhere to buy this at the shops, I was so happy to see that I could buy it online from here. It only goes for one hour but it is totally worth it. Another reason I got this anime was because I'm a big fan of Attack on titan and I read that it's the same producers that made Hal.
