GKIDS has announced that they will be bringing Masaaki Yuasa’s INU-OH to North American theaters this summer!
“Born to an esteemed family, Inu-oh is afflicted with an ancient curse that has left him on the margins of society. When he meets the blind musician Tomona, a young biwa priest haunted by his past, Inu-oh discovers a captivating ability to dance. The pair quickly become business partners and inseparable friends as crowds flock to their electric, larger-than-life concerts. But when those in power threaten to break up the band, Inu-oh and Tomona must dance and sing to uncover the truth behind their creative gifts.”via GKIDS
Based on the novel Tales of the Heike: INU-OH by Hideo Furukawa, it focuses on the friendship of two performers in 14th-century Japan. Ostracized by society, they use their talents to gain fame. The movie is directed by the amazingly talented Masaki Yuasa, written by Akiko Nogi, with music by Yoshihide Otomo, and animation by Science SARU. It stars Avu-chan and Mirai Moriyama.
INU-OH will be in select theaters on August 12. Set a course for the official site to learn more and to get your tickets.
