As the clip begins, Inu-Oh can be seen running around in wild abandon through the town streets. His characteristically long right arm helps him climb roofs easily. To be honest, the lack of judgment and surprise among local people about his appearance is very refreshing.

In the video’s second part, you can see the huge fan following Tomona and Inu-Oh have amassed together.

About Inu-Oh

INU-OH is a musical anime feature film of Hideo Furukawa’s Heike Monogatari: INU-OH no Maki (Tales of the Heike: INU-OH) novel. The film will make its world premiere and compete in the Horizons (Orizzonti) category at the 78th Venice International Film Festival.

Inu-Oh is born with unique physical characteristics, and the horrified adults cover every inch of his body with garments, including a mask on his face. One day, he meets a boy named Tomona, a blind biwa player, and as Tomona plays a delicate song of tangled fate, Inu-Oh discovers an incredible ability to dance.

Inu-Oh and Tomona become business partners and through the songs, Inu-Oh mesmerizes his audiences on stage, and gradually begins to transform into someone of unequaled beauty. But why is Tomona blind? Why was Inu-Oh born with unique characteristics?
