Josee, the Tiger and the Fish UK Cinematic Release Confirmed for August

Previously announced for a UK release as part of Cloud Matsuri last year, and more recently with a trailer before Violet Evergarden The Movie in the cinema this year, Anime Limited have now confirmed that the feature length film Josee, the Tiger and the Fish will receive a cinematic release from 11th August 2021.

Animated by BONES, the studio currently most famous for animating My Hero Academia, Josee, the Tiger and the Fish is a story that follows Kumiko Yamamura, a girl who insists on being called “Josee”, a character from her favourite book, as she finds herself trying to overcome difficulties within her life. Josee, the Tiger and the Fish is described as a uplifting romance story that offers a change of pace from BONES previous works and other titles currently hitting the cinematic spotlight.

With dreams of diving abroad, Tsuneo gets a job assisting Josee, an artist whose imagination takes her far beyond her wheelchair. But when the tide turns against them, they push each other to places they never thought possible, and inspire a love fit for a storybook.

Josee, the Tiger and the Fish will be available in selected cinemas from 11th August 2021 with tickets available on the official website. Screening locations will be added frequently, so it is best to check back often to see if a cinema nearby will be showing the film.
