“When you’re a bored teenager looking for thrills, sometimes the only thing you can turn to is rock ‘n roll. Having no skill, money, or even a full set of drums, a feared trio of high school delinquents nevertheless decide they are destined for musical glory in a quest to impress their only friend Aya, avoid a rival gang, and – most importantly – jam out.

A labor of love seven years in the making, Best Animated Feature hopeful On-Gaku: Our Sound presents a highly original take on the beloved slacker comedy. Featuring hand drawn animation from director Kenji Iwaisawa and a lead performance by Japanese alt-rock legend Shintaro Sakamoto, On-Gaku: Our Sound brings its own artistic vision to the Hiroyuki Ohashi manga from which it was adapted. With pitch-perfect deadpan humor, this lo-fi buddy anime boasts a blaring musical finale that will leave you wanting an immediate encore.” -GKids
