From Japan’s cutting-edge STUDIO4°C (Tekkonkinkreet, MFKZ) and director Ayumu Watanabe, this stunningly beautiful adaptation of the prize-winning manga features a score from legendary composer Joe Hisaishi (Spirited Away). 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.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: An animated adventure perhaps best appreciated as a visual experience, Children of the Sea is strikingly lovely if less than satisfying on a narrative level.
Slow pace, heavy themes in lengthy anime.
