About Inu-Oh Film
Inu-Oh is born with unusual physical traits, and the terrified adults wrap every inch of his body with clothing, including a mask on his face. One day, he meets Tomona, a blind biwa player, and while listening to Tomona play a delicate song of twisted fate, Inu-Oh finds an astonishing talent to dance.

In order to live in a harsh environment, Inu-Oh and Tomona will form a friendship in the film. They will nurture each other and rise to the pinnacle of the age via their art.
David Ehrlich writes in Indiewire,
At heart, “Inu-Oh” is a film about storytelling’s power to keep the past alive, and while Yuasa’s carnivalesque extravaganza can be too slippery to hold onto at times, it always proves unforgettable in a way that serves that ultimate purpose. Even viewers who are overwhelmed by the novel’s worth of opening text — an info-dense scrawl recounting the 12th century clash between the Genji and Heike clans — and puzzled by the political gamesmanship between rival imperial courts during Muromachi Era Japan will soon find themselves bopping along to the timeless beats of a tale about stolen myths, suppressed histories, and how the ghosts of the past make their voices heard.
Inu-Oh Film Release Date
The Inu-Oh anime film will release in Japan on May 28, 2022.
The teaser depicts scenes in which Tomona plays a funky rhythm as Inu-Oh dances wildly. The duo’s spectacular performances will affect the lives of those around them as the music plays with their souls.
