[ Story ]

The first, completely original theatrical film by director Yuasa Masaaki. This tale of the encounter and separation of a young boy and a young mermaid is composed of careful depictions of life and delicate emotional portrayals rendered through animation bursting with briskness and energy.
Middle school student Kai (voice:Shimoda Shouta) ends up in a declining fishing town as a result of his parents' divorce. Depressed, he is one day invited by a classmate to join their band. Kai reluctantly goes to the practice site on Mermaid Island where he meets Lu (voice:Tani Kanon), a young mermaid.
