The 2019 anime film Children of the Sea is coming to home release! GKIDS and Shout! Factory will make the movie available later this summer on digital, Blu-ray, and DVD with some exciting bonus features.
Adapted from an award-winning manga by Daisuke Igarashi, Children of the Sea is a mystery that explores the connections between humanity and nature:
When Ruka was younger, she saw a ghost in the water at the aquarium where her dad worked. Now she feels drawn toward the aquarium and the two mysterious boys she meets there, Umi and Sora, who were raised by dugongs and hear the same strange calls from the sea as she does. As the kids get caught up in the mystery behind the sudden worldwide disappearance of the ocean’s fish, they uncover cosmic connections that will change them forever.Animation Magazine
