PRESS: "”From award-winning director Keiichi Hara (Colorful) and Japanese powerhouse Production I.G (creators of 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 inside his studio. Her masterful portraits, dragons and erotic sketches- sold under the name of her father- are coveted by upper crust Lords and journeyman print makers alike. Shy and reserved in public, in the studio O-Ei is as brash and uninhibited as her father, smoking a pipe while sketching drawings that would make contemporary Japanese ladies blush.

But despite this fiercely independent spirit, O-Ei struggles under the domineering influence of her father and is ridiculed for lacking the life experience that she is attempting to portray in her art. Miss Hokusai's bustling Edo (present day Tokyo) is filled with yokai spirits, dragons, and conniving tradesmen, while O-Ei's relationships with her demanding father and blind younger sister provide a powerful emotional underpinning to this sumptuously-animated coming-of-age tale.”"

Based on the best-selling supernatural action mystery manga series "Death Note" written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata (published from December, 2003 to May, 2006 in Weekly Shonen Jump), the latest live action feature film - titled “Death Note: Light Up The NEW World” is scheduled to premiere on Japanese screens on October 29th 2016 (No date scheduled for Singapore though…).

A sequel / continuation of to the story in "Death Note The Last Name" (2006) movie, this feature is directed by Shinsuke Sato (“The Princess Blade”, “GANTZ”, and upcoming “Bleach” for 2018), will also feature Namie Amuro (pictured with Ryuk in the promotional image to the right) performing the theme song “Dear Diary” and the insert song “Fighter” (rocketnews24.com). Looking nigh interesting thus far too!
