With each New Year bringing feelings of new beginnings and vows to explore new talents (at least until we slip just once from our gym routine!), the Screen Anime channel is excited to head into 2021 with a line-up themed around new beginnings, led by Keiichi Hara's Annecy Award-nominated biopic Miss Hokusai, as well as The Place Promised in Our Early Days, the feature film debut of the now world-famous director Makoto Shinkai, and more!
Joining them later this month are the intense and action-packed thriller Jin-Roh (written by Mamoru Oshii of Ghost in the Shell fame), and the eclectic short-film anthology follow-up Genius Party Beyond. These four great films are also joined by this month's binge-worthy TV series The Tatami Galaxy, the acclaimed eccentric romantic comedy from Masaaki Yuasa (Night is Short, Walk on Girl).
All titles will be available on Screen Anime from 27 December 2020 until 25 January 2021. The four feature films will be available in both Japanese with English subtitles and an English dub, marking the UK & Ireland debut of Miss Hokusai's dub. The Tatami Galaxy will be available in Japanese with English subtitles only.
