Having previously worked for Studio Ghibli, Tomotaka Shibayama (A Whisker Away) helms the emotionally imaginative direction of the May release. Kensho Ono voices the self-contained Hiiragi Yatsuse, while he finds his unlikely match in Miyu Tomita's Tsumugi, who's all about self-expression. As the young boy and the demon girl, with completely opposite personalities, cross paths, a unique and unexpected bond blossoms.

As seen in the trailer, high school fresher Hiiragi, crippled by the fear of being disliked, yearns to form bonds with everyone. As the habit takes shape in his inability to say no to anyone while hoping to appease everyone reaching out to him, he encounters a demon girl named Tsumugi.

Tsumugi taps into to the human world in search of her mother. But, along the way, she and Hiiragi end up navigating their unusual friendship and unravelling the mystery of how humans turn into oni. The My Oni Girl trailer's emotionally vibrant vision finds its perfect, heart-touching match in the accompanying theme song, Truth in Lies, by ZUTOMAYO. Accentuating the profoundly layered plot twists and bitter truths about suppressed emotions, the song Blues in the Closet will be unveiled later.

My Oni Girl intertwines the vivid themes of “awkward first encounters, life and death, feeling like an outsider and Shibayama’s kind personality” with the consciously made song choices.

Embark on the magical journey of self-discovery and uncover the true powers held in expressing emotions in My Oni Girl on May 24.
