MIPCOM has selected Kurara: The Dazzling Life of Hokusai’s Daughter, from the NHK Enterprises catalog, as its first-ever 4K Asian World Premiere TV Screening.
The story focuses on O-Ei, the daughter of Edo master painter Katsushika Hokusai.
Meanwhile, the long-awaited third season of the Moribito series, Moribito Final, plays out across four kingdoms. “The exciting storyline, stunning VFX and gorgeous cast all make this high-end fantasy a must-see drama,” says Fumina Koike, the deputy general manager for program sales at NHK Enterprises.
The series Bloom takes place in 1964, when Tokyo is experiencing rapid economic growth with the Olympics taking place. Koike describes it as a “coming-of-age story about a young girl finding a place of her own in the big city.”
“With the commencement of regular 4K/8K broadcasts in 2018, NHK is dramatically increasing its 4K program production,” adds Koike.
