Japanese Movie Database lists 391 films released in Japan during 1963.[1] The five major studios released 363 feature films this year, of which 182 were in color; 252 were gendai-geki, set in the modern era, and 79 were jidai-geki, set in historical times.[2] Film critic Tadao Satō names as a significant Japanese release of the year, Shōhei Imamura's The Insect Woman.[3] Imamura's film became a major influence on the new Pink film genre, of which 24 films were produced in 1963, the second year of the genre's existence.[4][5] The modern yakuza film genre gained popularity in 1963, and surpassed the traditional jidai-geki over the next decade. This year NHK produced the first of its annual television Taiga Dramas: A Glorious Life (花の生涯 Hana no shogai).[3]
