GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE animated with original footage

Avex began streaming the anime music video for GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE's "Brand New Story" song on Friday. The song is the theme song for Masaaki Yuasa and Science SARU's Ride Your Wave (Kimi to, Nami ni Noretara) anime film, which also opened in Japan on Friday. The video contains original animation, and portrays the members of the group in animated form.

GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE member Ryota Katayose plays main character Minato in the film. Science SARU produced the video with the concept of setting it after the main story of the film.

The anime is nominated for the Best Animation award in the Shanghai International Film Festival's Golden Goblet Awards. The award winners will be announced during the festival, which is taking place from June 15 to June 24. The film also competed in the Features category at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, which will ran from June 10-15 in the French community of the same name.

The love story follows Hinako, a college student who moves to a coastal town. She loves surfing, and when she's on the waves she's fearless, but on land she has trouble riding the waves of life. When a fire wreaks havoc in the town, Hinako encounters a firefighter named Minato. Minato can handle almost any task on land, but is a beginner at surfing. As they surf and spend more time together, Hinako feels drawn to someone like Minato who devotes himself to helping other people, and the two start a relationship. However, Minato loses his life in an accident at sea. Despondent, Hinako sings a song about their memories together, and Minato appears again from the water.

Reiko Yoshida (Lu over the wall, A Silent Voice, Liz and the Blue Bird) wrote the film's script, and Michiru Oshima (Patema Inverted, The Night is Short Walk On, Girl) composed the music.
