Movie Info & Cast


Fathom Events and GKIDS have once again partnered to bring Children of the Sea, latest feature from Japan’s STUDIO4C, to theaters nationwide for an exclusive two-night event. Adapted from the manga of the same name by author Daisuke Igarashi, Children of the Sea is directed by Ayumu Watanabe, with a score by award-winning composer and longtime Studio Ghibli collaborator Joe Hisaishi (Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro). When Ruka was younger, she saw a ghost in the water at the aquarium where her dad works. Now she feels drawn toward the aquarium and the two mysterious boys she meets there, Umi and Sora. They were raised by dugongs and hear the same strange calls from the sea as she does. Ruka’s dad and the other adults who work at the aquarium are only distantly aware of what the children are experiencing as they get caught up in the mystery of the worldwide disappearance of the oceans’ fish.

Did You Know?


  • The "Kaijû" in the Japanese title is the Japanese term for a marine mammal, written with characters that mean literally "sea beast". It is pronounced exactly the same way but is a different word from the "kaijû", written with characters that mean literally "strange beast", that refers to (usually non-folkloric) monsters such as the titular characters of "Godzilla (1954)" and "Mothra (1961)".
