Ocean Waves DOUBLEPLAY Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

One of Studio Ghibli's most obscure and sought after titles OCEAN WAVES (also known as Umi Ga Kikoeru and I Can Hear The Sea) is newly restored and available for the very first time in stunning high-definition. Directed by Tomomi Mochizuki (Princess Nine) and based upon author, essayist and playwright Saeko Himuro's most popular, best-selling novel, OCEAN WAVES is one of the most poignant and unsung masterpieces within Studio Ghibli's legendary creative output. Wonderfully detailed and incredibly subtle, there are very few films in the history of animation that have managed to capture so well the joys and drama of adolescence and teenage alienation. Kōchi is your average coastal town on the sleepy, idyllic island of Shikoku and young Taku is definitely your average high school student. But soon his quiet life will be turned upside down with the arrival of Rikako: a beautiful, female student recently transferred from Tokyo. By the end of term Taku will have learnt a valuable lesson in love and friendship.

The film follows Taku (voice of Nobuo Tobita), a young Japanese high school student whose life is turned upside down by the arrival from Tokyo of mysterious new girl Rikako (Yoko Sakamoto). Despite Rikako's insistence on keeping her distance from her new classmates, Tako finds himself falling for her as circumstances conspire to bring them together during a school trip to Hawaii. However, things soon become complicated when it emerges that Tako has a rival for Rikako's affections in the form of his close friend Yutaka (Toshihiko Seki).
