In terms of Japanese import merchandise, the Limited Edition Blu-ray was released in May 2017, and includes some collectors items and beautiful packaging, although does not include english subtitles. Still may be worth a buy.
For those interested in the manga, Kodansha has listed a box set of the complete collection (listed as November 14 on Right Stuf, December 19 on Amazon)
The acclaimed, bestselling manga about a girl who can't hear and the boy who bullied her, from start to finish, in a premium, collectible box set. Includes all seven volumes, plus an exclusive, double-sided 10-by-15-inch poster and a replica of Shoko's communication notebook.
One particularly interesting book to look out for is the "Making Of" book for the film! You can find some images here:
Unfortunately this may be a bit harder to find, as it appears to no longer be in print. But it looks to be a beautiful glimpse at production artwork, so I would be on the look out for it!
That's all for now!
