posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday July 30, Anime Limited is releasing Masaaki Yuasa's film Lu Over the Wall in three formats: a Collectors Blu-ray/DVD and a standard Blu-ray and DVD. The Collectors Edition includes a 52-page art book. Anime Limited summarises the film as follows:
'After the divorce of his parents sees him move to a sleepy rural village, middle school student Kai is left lonely and bored aside from his sole passion for creating and uploading music online. Even when two of his classmates invite him to join their fledgling band, Kai is reluctant to get involved, but when he's dragged to a practice session on a deserted island he finds himself coming face-to-face with Hinashi Town's most feared legend – a mermaid, shunned by the populace as a siren of despair responsible for the loss of many fisherman in years gone by. However, the fun-loving and curious Lu couldn't be more different than the mermaids spoken of in legend, and her infectious love of music and dancing might just be the key to not only unlocking Kai's heart, but also saving Hinashi Town from danger.'
