About The Anthem of the Heart Standard Edition Blu-ray (Import)
I have feelings I can’t tell anybody hidden deep in a shell inside of my heart. But, really, I want to shout it out…my honest feelings like a beautiful anthem is waiting to break free!
Jun is a girl whose words have been sealed away. She was once a very happy girl, but because of a "certain thing" she said when she was very young, her family was torn apart. Then, the egg fairy appeared in front of her and sealed away her ability to talk in order to stop her from hurting anybody else. Since this traumatic experience, Jun lives in the shadows away from the limelight. Years later -- she is nominated to become an executive member of the “community outreach council.” On top of that, Jun is also appointed to play the main lead in their musical…

Ratings & Reviews
Very good movie.
When I first saw the trailer for this movie I knew I really wanted to watch it. I had never bought an import before so I was kind of hesitant to do so, but i just couldn't refuse.
The movie was excellent! I enjoyed the movie from beginning to end. I really enjoyed the animation and voice acting. I thought the movie had a pretty good message to it as well; be careful of what you say, because words can hurt more than anything else.
The only complaint I had was that every now and then the animation just looked a little off, but those moments were very brief and there weren't many of them.
I would highly recommend this movie to anyone. I look forward to watching it again and hope that eventually it'll have an English dub so that I can take in the movie better without having to pause occasionally to read the subtitles.
Great movie - Release phoned in by Aniplex

The Good - If you enjoy shows like "AnoHana", "Bunny Drop", or "Kids on the Slope" , this movie does not disappoint. The stars reflect the movie itself only.
The Bad - No dub for the price, but this is normal for Aniplex. I am usually okay with this, however there is a scene where there is a lot of talking (2 sets of subtitles) and I found it hard to both watch the action and keep up with reading. Also, if commentary/interviews are included as extras; subtitle them. Otherwise these may as well not be included because they have no value to me.
The Ugly - I understand this is an import, but this release is plain lazy IMHO and looks like a shady knock off DVD. Nothing is translated into English on the case. Can we at least have cover in English with "Anthem of the Heart" on the front and the usual highlights on the back?!
