This is the most recent work presented by Ghibli studio.
It is first movie that directed by Goro Miyazaki, who is Hayao Miyazaki’s son, scriptwriting helped by father. I really love this poster. The cool blue tone makes me calm and express main place of this movie very well. It also inculdes love story, I’ve never seen love story from Ghibli studio, so I really expect to see this movie!
This is Miyazaki Goro
16 years old girl Wumi, which means ocean in Japanese word, runs boarding house in Kokuriko-zaka. She can see beautiful harbor in her house. Her father was passed away during sailing, so she always lifts the flag to wish safe sailing for people. Shun, always watch that flag on his sailing.
On the other hand, the society pursue new thing rather than old, so there is a conflict over demolishing old building of Wumi’s school. She wants to keep old building which has history and memory, therefore, she and her friends start to do conservation movement; and taking this opportunity, Shun and Wumi becomes have a close relationship feeling attractive each other.
