Described as a 14th century rock opera, Inu-Oh is named for one of hte main characters: a boy born into an esteemed family but afflicted with an ancient curse twisting his form. When he meets the blind musician Tomona, a young biwa priest haunted by his past voiced by Queen Bee’s Avu-chan, Inu-oh discovers a captivating ability to dance. The pair quickly become business partners and inseparable friends as crowds flock to their electric, larger-than-life concerts.
