My Oni GirlMovie on Netflix

A shy teenage boy is dragged on a mystical journey by a headstrong girl to find her missing mom amid summer snow.


Why watch this film?

The fourth film from the Japanese animation team Studio Colorido (responsible for A Whisker Away), My Oni Girl is a dramatic comedy with elements of fantasy and romance, very much in line with films by directors like Makoto Shinkai. This is the story of a high school boy who is hopelessly compliant: he doesn't know how to say no. His life takes a turn when he meets a girl from the world of the Oni (Japanese demons), who comes to the human world in search of her mother and who is his complete opposite, as she always does what she wants. A beautiful fantasy to reflect on setting boundaries and following our hearts, with stunning animation by the studio.
