GKIDS Licenses the Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko Anime Film

GKIDS Films has announced that it has acquired the license for the Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko anime film.

The story of the film is described as:

In this spirited rebellion against patriarchal culture’s body-shaming and denial of pleasure to women, Nikuko (‘Meat-girl,’ voiced by Shinobu Ōtake) is a plus-sized single mother who adores food, Japanese wordplay, and shifty men, and never loses her joie de vivre. After drifting half her life with daughter Kikuko (voiced by Cocomi, daughter of SMAP megastar Takuya Kimura), Nikuko settles in an idyllic fishing village, and finds work at a yakiniku joint. Kikuko’s dreamy coming-of-age is jolted by a big secret in Nikuko’s past.

Ayumu Watanabe directed the anime at Studio 4°C. Satomi Ooshima wrote the script. Kenichi Konishi was the character designer and chief animation director. Sanma Akashiya planned and produced the film.

Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko opened in Japanese theaters on June 11, 2021.
