The stories are told with bold, coherent graphics and buoyed by music that’s sometimes anachronistic but always right. O-Ei is voiced with sensitivity and confidence by Anne Watanabe, daughter of the actor Ken Watanabe, and all of the other voice roles are beautifully done.
New York Times
[A]n undeniably unique biopic, and not merely because it’s an animated one.
[B]y spending so much time with its title character, MISS HOKUSAI suggests that there’s also an art to facilitating someone else’s work, and becoming a skilled craftsperson. -- Grade: B+
[An] unusual, visually adventurous animated feature, simultaneously modern and steeped in Japanese culture and history.
Los Angeles Times
This animated historical drama, set in 1814 Tokyo (then known as "Edo"), captures the lives of legendary painter Katsushika Hokusai and his two daughters via a series of vignettes. While O-Ei, a talented artist in her own right, helps him with his work, O-Nao is ignored by her father due to her blindness. Directed by Keiichi Hara, MISS HOKUSAI was adapted from the manga series SARUSUBERI by Hinako Sugiura.
