Anime fans! We have some truly exciting news for you. We’ve all been told to follow our dreams at some point. But that can be easier said than done when the world deals us a bad hand. However, we can learn to understand and inspire each other with Josee, the Tiger and the Fish, a heartwarming anime take on the classic short story by award-winning author Seiko Tanabe, which we’re delighted to announce is coming to the UK & Ireland from 11th August 2021.
Josee, the Tiger and the Fish has made a splash around the world, with it being selected to close the 25th Busan International Film Festival, and screening in competition at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. Back home in Japan, the film also earned nominations at both the 75th Mainichi Film Awards and the 44th Japan Academy Film Prize.
We’re so incredibly excited to finally see it on the big screen next month.
Insisting on being called “Josee”, a character from her favourite book, Kumiko Yamamura is stubborn, unruly, and not even her thick Osakan accent can hide the sharpness of her tongue. However, she’s also trapped in a home ill-prepared for her disabilities. She’s hidden away from a world she’s been told is full of hostile “tigers”. When she literally falls into the arms of aspirational college student Tsuneo Suzukawa, however, the two start to see the world and what they want from it in a whole new light in this uplifting romance that’s a refreshing change of pace for a studio mostly known for action anime like the UK box office smash-hit My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising.
Tickets are now available to buy, you won’t want to miss this one so make sure you visit wwwJoseeFilm.co.uk
