‘Oshiete Hokusai!’, an educational entertainment anime to make dreams come true, will have an advance distribution on ABEMA from March 7, and on other channels from March 8. Along with that, it was announced that CHAI, world-famous “neo kawaii” band, will be performing the theme song, and that Waki Azumi and Konishi Katsuyuki, the voice cast in the anime, will sing the chorus as well.
“Oshiete Hokusai! -THE ANIMATION-” is based on “Yume wo Kanaeru Bakushou! Nihon Bijutsu Manga Oshiete Hokusai!” written by Iwakiri Naoto, and directed by the author Iwakiri Naoto who is a Japanese art enthusiast, and produced by CoMix Wave Films known for “Your Name”.
It is a short anime with a 10-minute-long episodes (10 episodes in total) that enables you to learn “Japanese art” and “philosophy of life” at the same time. The story follows a lazy high school girl learning from the greatest painters from the Japanese art sphere, and struggling while growing up .
The theme song will be ‘Tentekorin no Theme’ by “neo-kawaii” band CHAI.
This song was written and composed by CHAI as a theme song for the protagonist Okakura Tentekorin with an inspiration from the original work.
Based on the theme of the film, “What is talent?” and “Can dreams come true even if you don’t have talent?”, CHAI sublimates the “complex” of the protagonist, who has no talent and no motivation, into a true “art”. Please do not miss it.
Moreover, Waki Azumi as Tentekorin, and Konishi Katsuyuki as a god of thunder that appears to make her dream come true, joins in and sings in the chorus, which makes the song more colorful.

I understand how it is hard to start and keep doing something as there are many obstacles to come!
We always end up looking for reasons for not doing it…I want to send this anime and song to people who are paralyzed by fear!
You will get courageous enough to laugh and forget about your failures!
