The February issue of Akita Shoten's Monthly Mystery Bonita magazine announced on Friday that Abi Umeda's Kujira no Kora wa Sajō ni Utau (Whale Calves Sing on the Sand) manga is receiving an anime adaptation. The series features on the issue's cover.
The manga's story takes place in a world covered in sand. A boy named Chakuro lives on the giant vessel Mud Whale that drifts over the sea of sand. Chakuro and his friends have never seen anyone from the outside world, and they spend their days yearning to explore and learn about it. One day, a ruined ship suddenly drifts ashore, and Chakura meets a girl inside.
Umeda launched the series in the magazine in 2013 as her second shōjo manga. Akita Shoten released the eighth compiled book volume on October 14. The series inspired a stage play adaptation that ran at AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo from April 14 to April 19, 2016.
