Upon a glassy ocean, in a world where time appears to have stopped, an old man travels and reminisces about his past. Joining him is a painter who likes to capture ships and whales in his drawings, and a number of other travelers. From a whale about to jump, to a fallen star, to flying fish that are waiting to be caught, there are an infinite number of wonders to be found on the serene and glassy ocean.
This is a very surreal anime about people's who's time is seemingly much faster than normal people's. Oh, and to them, it's as if the ocean is made of glass (hence the name). The main plot (if you can call it that), is that a whale is jumping, and so many people come to watch the spectacle. There are also quite a few other parts to the story, like the characters reminicing about their strange pasts. The whole thing feels very odd. The animation definitley adds to the surrealism. The ocean has quite an interesting style especially. It definitley works well with the story, and is generally quite a nice style to look at. If you enjoy surreal anime, then I would highly reccomend watching this. If you don't, this will definitley not be for you. If you're not sure, it might be good to give it a go - if nothing else the whale is pretty impressive to look at. Review for February 2017 DAMC
