GKIDS recently announced plans to bring Kenji Iwaisawa’s On-Gaku: Our Sound anime film to select theaters in North America on December 11. Ahead of that, the distributor shared a new trailer previewing more of the adaptation of Hiroyuki Ohashi’s manga.
On-Gaku: Our Sound is currently lined up to play in select markets including San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, Dallas, Boston, and more.
When you’re a bored teenager looking for thrills, sometimes the only thing you can turn to is rock ‘n roll. Having no skill, money, or even a full set of drums, a feared trio of high school delinquents nevertheless decide they are destined for musical glory in a quest to impress their only friend Aya, avoid a rival gang, and – most importantly – jam out.
Animated almost entirely by director Kenji Iwaisawa, and featuring a lead performance by Japanese alt-rock legend Shintaro Sakamoto, ON-GAKU: OUR SOUND brings its own sound and vision to the Hiroyuki Ohashi manga from which it was adapted. With pitch-perfect deadpan humor, the film presents a highly original take on the beloved slacker comedy: a lo-fi buddy film with a blaring musical finale that will leave you wanting an immediate encore.
Local ordinances are different depending on where you live. If you’re in an area showing On-Gaku Our Sound, exercise caution before venturing out. You can learn more about how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 at the CDC website.
