A new trailer for the upcoming anime film Children of the Sea has dropped. Check out the trailer!
Based on the award-winning manga of the same name by Daisuke Igarashi, Children of the Sea explores a tale of friendship, the ocean and its creatures, and environmental themes:
When Ruka was younger, she saw a ghost in the water at the aquarium where her dad works. Now, she feels drawn toward the aquarium and the two mysterious boys she meets there, Umi and Sora. They were raised by dugongs and hear the same strange calls from the sea as she does. Ruka’s dad and the other adults who work at the aquarium are only distantly aware of what the children are experiencing as they get caught up in the mystery of the worldwide disappearance of the oceans’ fish.Animation Magazine
