posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Crunchyroll added the Sea Prince and the Fire Child anime film to its catalog on Tuesday. The film is available in both the English dub and Japanese audio with English subtitles for users in the United States and Canada.
Crunchyroll describes the story:
Long ago, spirits of fire and water lived as one. But jealous Algaroch, Lord of the Winds, drove a rift between King Oceanus and his sister Hyperia, Queen of Fire. Since then fire fairies and water sprites have been at war and forbidden from consorting, but when Prince Sirius, the king's chosen successor, meets Hyperia's beautiful daughter Malta, they fall madly in love. A wise, old turtle explains their one chance is to reach the hill of Elysium during the next solar eclipse, where a magic flower blossoms that can carry them to a distant star where fire and water live as one.
Masami Hata (Ringing Bell) directed the 1981 film, and wrote the screenplay alongside Chiho Katsura (Harmagedon). It is based on an original story by Sanrio founder Shintaro Tsuji. Discotek Media released the film on DVD in 2010.
