About Okko's Inn Blu-ray/DVD

Okko's Inn is an anime film directed by Kitaro Kosaka, a key animator who worked on numerous classic films at Studio Ghibli, including Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.

After losing her parents in a car accident, Okko goes to live in the countryside with her grandmother, who runs a traditional Japanese inn built on top of an ancient spring said to have healing waters. While she goes about her chores, Okko discovers there are spirits who live there that only she can see – not scary ones, but welcoming ghosts who keep her company, play games and help her navigate her new environment. The inn’s motto is that it welcomes all and will reject none, and this is soon put to the test as a string of new guests challenge Okko’s ability to be a gracious host.

Charming and instantly likable.

After traumatically losing her parents, young Okko is sent to stay with her grandmother, who runs an inn. Befriended by some friendly ghosts that only she can see, Okko aspires to be a "junior innkeeper" and live up to her inn's legacy that "all are welcome". Directed by Studio Ghibli alumni Kitaro Kosaka, this beautiful animated tearjerker is a fine addition to the list of emotionally resonant features that have been coming out of Japan lately (A SILENT VOICE, and MAQUIA, to name some examples). Although it's more of a lighthearted, kid-friendly vehicle for the most part, Kosaka manages to make this tale filled with enough nuance, energy, and heart for even adults to be intrigued with. The dub is also another winner from NYAV Post, with Madigan Kacmar doing an outstanding job in the title role. If you ever decide to check out this charmer, I highly would recommend doing so.
