March 11, 2019 · 0 comments

Greetings one and all! Yes, I know what you’re all thinking… “Oh yeah, Anime Limited used to do new release posts all the time, when was the last time we saw one of those?” And yes, you’d be right to ask that, as we’ve been decidedly lax in dropping you reminders of our latest releases in this for quite a while – much like going to the gym and all of the best habits, it’s a hard one to keep.

But here we are, dusting off our best trainers and getting down to some mental gymnastics back on the New Release news post train, so join us as we take a look at this week’s new release, as well as a reminder of another recent (and long-awaited) title that you may have missed. Without further ado, let’s jump on the new release treadmill!

Synopsis: After moving from Tokyo to a small seaside town, 15-year-old Futaba is captivated by the ocean views and the vast expanse of water which she finds laid out before her. Unbeknownst to her, Futaba’s fascination is shared by Hikari, who has lived in the town her entire life, and the two girl’s lives intermingle unexpectedly when the introverted Futaba meets the outgoing and exuberant Hikari as one of her new classmates.

Before she knows it, a whole new world is opened up to Futaba – a sparkling, shimmering world that exists under the sea, as her new-found friend helps her confront her fears and anxieties through the form of scuba diving.

As her circle of friends grows, and with her confidence burgeoning, so Futaba finds the strength and self-assuredness to grow and develop with the support of those around her in this quietly touching and charming tale of friendship and finding yourself, lovingly animated by J.C. Staff
