The Japanese Box Office sensation

When timid eleventh-grader and math genius Kenji Koiso is asked by older student and secret crush Natsuki to come with her to her family's Nagano home for a summer job, he agrees without hesitation. Natsuki's family, the Jinnouchi clan, dates back to the Muromachi era, and they've all come together to celebrate the 90th birthday of the spunky matriarch of the family, Sakae. That's when Kenji discovers his "summer job" is to pretend to be Natsuki's fiancé and dance with her at the birthday celebration. As Kenji attempts to keep up with Natsuki's act around her family, he receives a strange math problem on his cell phone which, being a math genius, he can't resist solving. As it turns out, the solution to the mysterious equation causes a hijacking of the social networking site through which most of the world's social and business traffic flows. It's up to Kenji and his new fake family to put reality back in order.

Brilliant Anime - well worth watching!

I've been disappointed by too many poorly subbed anime releases lately so I'll wait until I've read a few in depth reviews before ordering.

Currently there is confusion over the release date for Summer Wars on DVD / Blu-Ray. Although Zavvi predicts 11th October, translation difficulties with the film have meant Manga Entertainment are suggesting a possible January / February 2011 for the UK release.

That's a pity - but at least they should have time to include proper subs also (some of the comments I read seemed to suggest the October 11th release would only be a dub).

While you're waiting for this BD release why not watch Kara no Kyoukai (The garden of Sinners)? A series of seven 48 minute - 2 hour anime films released between 2008-2009 (probably no prospect for an English language release); very violent but very, very good.
