- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Recipient of the Jury Prize at the 2015 Annecy International Animated Film Festival and nominated for an Annie Award® for Best Animated Independent Feature, "Miss Hokusai" is a visually resplendent and soulful portrait of a female artist in 19th century Japan as the age of the samurai draws to a close. 

Certified 94% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and featuring stunning visuals, the film and its beautiful animation is being praised by critics as "Extraordinary! Enchanting and thought-provoking" (Glenn Kenny, The New York Times). 

"Miss Hokusai" will be available to own on Digital HD on Feb. 21 and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on March 7 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, in partnership with GKIDS.

From award-winning director Keiichi Hara (Colorful) and Japanese powerhouse Production I.G (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, creating the paintings sold under her father's name. 

Shy in public, in the studio O-Ei is brash and uninhibited. Seeking to come into her own as an artist, O-Ei sets out into the bustling city of Edo (present-day Tokyo), where she encounters spirits, dragons, courtesans, and rival artists. 

With exceptional craftsmanship, story-telling and emotional depth, "Miss Hokusai" is "Gorgeous! A small poetic wonder!" (Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter).
