Buy your tickets to the L.A. Premiere of The Ghostly Adventures of Little Tofu Boy now!
2011, Eleven Arts, 88 min. Dir. Gisaburo Sug. The first full-length 3-D feature produced in Japan, TOFU BOY is a wild and whacky visual treat for kids and grown-up anime fans. The story revolves around a lovable, gentle yokai goblin, Tofu Boy – so named because he has to balance a big white square of tofu on a plate – who’s a big disappointment to his father, The King of Goblins. Put under a spell by a mischievous band of raccoon spirits, Tofu Boy wakes up several hundred years later – to find himself lost in a modern Tokyo that’s forgotten all about yokai spirits. (In Japanese with English subtitles.)
