On Monday August 20, MVM will release the first half of Nagi No Asukara: A Lull in the Sea on DVD. (The Blu-ray special edition of the complete series will follow on August 24.)

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.

Toshiya Shinohara (Black Butler, The Book of Bantorra) directed the series off scripts supervised by Mari Okada (Black Butler, The Book of Bantorra, anohana, Hana-Saku Iroha).

The story begins when second-year high school student Daichi Manatsu spies a mysterious circular rainbow floating in the skies over Tanegashima island, and becomes involved in a battle to defend humanity. The series reunited Star Driver's director Takuya Igarashi and series script supervisor Yoji Enokido.
