About the Movie
From award-winning director Keiichi Hara (Colorful) and Japanese powerhouse Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell) comes a remarkable story of the daughter behind one of history's most famous artists. As all of Edo flocks to see the work of the revered painter Hokusai, his daughter O-Ei toils diligently, creating the paintings sold under her father's name. Shy in public, in the studio O-Ei is brash and uninhibited. Seeking to come into her own as an artist, O-Ei sets out into the bustling city of Edo (present-day Tokyo), where she encounters spirits, dragons, con men and traders.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: While it's not entirely kid-friendly, this portrait of an artist is both enchanting and thought provoking.
Fresh: The annals of Western art are woefully sparse when it comes to female painters, which is just one of perhaps a dozen reasons that Miss Hokusai comes as such a refreshing anomaly among anime exports.
Fresh: [An] unusual, visually adventurous animated feature, simultaneously modern and steeped in Japanese culture and history.
Fresh: That an anime film can explore such complex subjects so beautifully in what's nominally an artist's biopic is a blessing in itself.
Original language track, please!
Was ready to click and buy this incredible movie, but noticed the review above stated that it was English language only. Could we please get the Japanese audio track added?
No Japanese audio <UPDATE: Now with Japanese Audio!>
Great movie but sadly, this version only contains the English dub. There's no Japanese audio track. <UPDATED - The Japanese audio track has been added. Thank you so much iTunes!>
