Nagi No Asukara: A Lull in the Sea
Long ago humanity lived in the sea, but some humans longed for the land and cast aside the raiments given to them by the sea god that allowed them to live in the ocean. One civilization was now two with very different ways of thinking and over time they forgot they were once one people. When their high school closes down, four ocean dwellers, Hikari Sakishima, Manaka Mukaido, Chisaki Hiradaira and Kaname Isaki are forced to live on the surface. But after they befriend land dweller Tsumugu Kihara their lives unfold in strange and beautiful ways.
