GKids To Release Anime Film ‘Inu-Oh’ On Home Video

The 2021 musical anime ‘Inu-Oh’ was a huge hit at the Japanese box office, winning the Satoshi Kon Award for Best Animated Feature at the Fantasia International Film Festival. GKids is now bringing it to home video in North America with a dub.

They said on their website, “INU-OH, the incredible new anime film from acclaimed director Masaaki Yuasa (Ride Your Wave, Mind Game, Night Is Short, Walk On Girl) will be arriving on all major digital platforms on December 20 and on Blu-Ray™ + DVD on January 24 from GKIDS, with distribution by Shout! Factory. “

GKids added, “Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes, INU-OH is a soaring glam-rock opera set in fourteenth-century Japan from visionary director Masaaki Yuasa, that is an ode to the power of music and a forceful statement on artistic freedom. Featuring character creation from manga artist Taiyo Matsumoto (Tekkonkinkreet), who previously collaborated with Yuasa on the anime adaptation of Matsumoto’s series Ping Pong the Animation, INU-OH features original rock songs by the lead voice actors Avu-chan and Mirai Moriyama, which will have viewers dancing along in their seats.”

GKids describes the synopsis as follows,

“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 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.”

The original voice cast includes Avu-chan as Inu-oh, Mirai Moriyama as Tomona, Tasuku Emoto as Lord Yoshimitsu Ashikaga, Kenjiro Tsuda as Inu-oh’s Father, and Yutaka Matsushige as Tomona’s Father.
