The novel version of the acclaimed anime film about surfing, summer love, grief, and a hint of magic. (And don’t miss the manga spin-off, also from Seven Seas!)
New college student Hinako, who moved to a small seaside town to surf and have fun, finds herself falling in love with firefighter Minato after he saves her from a fire. Their young romance comes to an abrupt end when Minato drowns…but in her grief, Hinako discovers that singing a song they used to perform as a duet summons Minato into the nearest body of water–be it a puddle, glass, or bathtub. Will Hinako be able to reach Minato again? Originally released as an anime movie by visionary director Masaaki Yuasa–which ran in North American theaters in early 2020–these books are the perfect companions to the film, coming to English-language Blu-ray from Shout! Factory.
