Hinako is a surf-loving college student who has just moved to a small seaside town. When a sudden fire breaks out at her apartment building, she is rescued by Minato, a handsome firefighter, and the two soon fall in love. Just as they become inseparable, a tragedy happens. Hinako is so distraught that she can no longer even look at the ocean, but one day she sings a song that reminds her of their time together, and Minato appears in the water. From then on, she can summon him in any watery surface as soon as she sings their song, but can the two really remain together forever? And what is the real reason for Minato's sudden reappearance?
After watching the trailer, I didn't had much expectations about this movie, thought it was going to be some sappy supernatural lovestory, but it was surprisingly good. It has a simple story, characters, music and beautiful animation. I still can't get the soundtrack out of my head- BRAND NEW STORY. This movie is not just all about romance, it's about finding happiness in life by taking personal responsibility, overcoming loss, letting go of the past and finding new passion and opportunities in life. Overall, the movie is simple, fun and refreshing to watch. A bitter sweet lovestory that teaches you lot of things.
Im giving this a 9 because you connect with the characters so well in such a short amount of time. Also all the charachters have that special thing about them that makes the movie so realistic. The first movie I ever cried to.
I found this to be a sweet story, whimsical in wonderful ways, and generally charming. The development of the two's romance and all the characters personalities were perhaps this films greatest strengths, and gave a firm foundation to keep me invested in the story. I loved the art style. Give it a watch!
