Seven years after the project was announced in 2012, the anime film adaptation of Hiroyuki Oohashi's Ongaku
manga is now complete. Ongaku
, titled On-Gaku: Our Sound
in English, will premiere in Japan in January 2020. The news was announced Sunday on Twitter and the film's official website.
The story follows a trio of hooligans who form a rock band with no prior musical training. The manga was self-published by Oohashi in 2005, and later printed by Ohta Publishing as part of a collection of Oohashi's works in 2009 titled Ongaku to Manga
A crowdfunding page to complete the film was launched on Makuake in July last year with a goal of 3.5 million yen. When crowdfunding closed in September 2018, the film had exceeded its goal by collecting over 4.1 million yen.
