GKIDS has announced that it has licensed Kenji Iwaisawa’s On-Gaku: Our Sound, the anime film adaptation of Hiroyuki Ohashi’s Ongaku manga. GKIDS will release the film in North America in 2020.
GKIDS describes the film:
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.
The film won the Grand Prize for Feature Animation award at the Ottawa International Animation Festival in September 2019. The film also competed in the sixth annual New Chitose Airport International Animation Festival in the festival’s Featured Animation Competition category in November 2019.
