Ghibli's OCEAN WAVES Remastered Trailer, Images and Poster


Ghibli's anime "Ocean Waves" ("Umi ga kikoeru") has been released for the first time ever in North American theaters. The 1993 television special never received a home video release, either, but now that Walt Disney has included it in its international distribution deal, it will probably get a DVD release, once it finishes its select theater run, which is scheduled between December 28, 2016 and March 10, 2017.

Directed by Tomomi Mochizuki, the film features the voices of Nobuo Tobita, Toshihiko Seki, Yoko Sakamoto, Kae Araki and Yuri Amano.

Check out the trailer, images and poster after the jump.

Official Synopsis
"Rarely seen outside of Japan, OCEAN WAVES is a subtle, poignant and wonderfully detailed story of adolescence and teenage isolation. Taku and his best friend Yutaka are headed back to school for what looks like another uneventful year. But they soon find their friendship tested by the arrival of Rikako, a beautiful new transfer student from Tokyo whose attitude vacillates wildly from flirty and flippant to melancholic. When Taku joins Rikako on a trip to Tokyo, the school erupts with rumors, and the three friends are forced to come to terms with their changing relationships."
