For the 25th anniversary of Kon Satoshi’s Perfect Blue, Filmarks will release a remaster version of it in Japan on September 15, 2023. It will only be in theaters for a limited time. This is to commemorate not only Perfect Blue, but also Madhouse’s 50th anniversary. [Thanks, Dengeki Online!]

This is the first time that Perfect Blue has been remastered in 4K. However, some theaters will only play it in 2K. You will have to check your theater’s website to see which version it will play. The movie will appear in forty-four select theaters across Japan from September 15 to 28, 2023. As of the time of writing, it’s unclear if Madhouse or Filmarks plan on showing it in theaters outside of the country.

Perfect Blue is an animated psychological thriller that came out in 1997. It focuses on Mima Kirigoe, who was a member of a J-pop idol group before she left to pursue a career in acting. This decision caused massive fan outrage, and even results in one of them stalking her. Mima’s various stressors cause her to develop psychosis, and things get worse when a series of murders start occurring around her.

The Perfect Blue remaster will air in Japan from September 15, 2023 for a limited time. There’s no word on a worldwide release yet.
