After a long time working in Television, Yuasa Masaaki (Mind Game) next month will make animated movie feature debut with Lu Over The Wall ( Yoake Tsugeru Lu no Uta ). Ahead of its release on 19th May the releasing studio Science Saru Studio has released a brand new 60 second trailer. The trailer shows off the conflict between the movie's protagonist and our 'little mermaid'...
The movie tells the story of a high school boy called Kai who moved from Tokyo City ith his father to a small fishing town. whilst fishing Kai sparks off a friendship with a mermaid called Lu when with 2 other friends. They sing and dance and over time it helps Kai open up over his parent's divorce, but things take a drastic twist in his hometown which forces Kai to save his home.
The first thing that you'll notice is Lu's design as it resembles a certain Ponyo. Despite this look, Lu Over The Wall is based on an original script and if you think the character design style looks familiar, Masaaki is behind The Tatami Galaxy TV Show. 2017 is a big year for Masaaki on feature front as his debut Yoru wa Mijikashi Arukeyo Otome (Night is short, Walk, Girl) was released this week.
