Although misfits may not be accepted by society, they have a profound impact on everyone, even those who hate them. Inu-Oh, a story about a protagonist couple, paints a clear picture of this.
It takes you through the journey of a blind musician Tomona and the eccentric dancer Inu-Oh who’s born with a unique appearance. People were shocked by his physical characteristics and made him wear a mask and cover every inch of his body in clothes.
Tomona and Inu-Oh’s fateful encounter led to the formation of a rock music duo surviving at the edge of society by performing.
The Inu-Oh anime film has been released in the United States and will make the world dance to its rock beats. Its U.S premiere is scheduled for 12th August 2022. GKIDS released an English-subtitled trailer in order to announce its release.
The duo’s eccentric nature and exceptional skills earned them glory and stardom in no time, but the hint of acceptance into the people was nowhere to be seen.
As the trailer previews Tomona and Inu-Oh’s first encounter, we get to witness a rock opera in Japan’s Muromachi period. Contrary to what you’d expect, the video shows the crowd going crazy during their performance, just like you’d see at a modern-day rock concert.
However, the story also mixes in the political instability of the period as nobles worry about a movement getting inspired by Tomona’s music. Inu-Oh believes that people will get louder and more excited about their music, just as the higher-ups think.
This hilarious tale about an eccentric couple who navigate their way through political instability and conservative society is sure to keep you on the edge.
You might be surprised by the unexpected.
