A teaser website for Kenji Nakamura’s latest project was created last month with images hinting at what the anime was going to be and now details have been released.
Adolescence, sci-fi and fishing – Tsuritama concerns the lives of four high school boys on the island of Enoshima. The first, Yuki Sanada, lives with his French grandmother and is uncommunicative and has not got a single friend. One day he meets Haru, a boy who thinks he is an alien and is visiting earth to indulge his love of fishing. They are soon joined by Natsuki and the mysterious Indian Akira who has a friend named Tapioca. Who is a duck. Just as they happen to kick things off together the island becomes the stage of an event that will affect the earth.
Interest is high because Kenji Nakamura has directed of notable titles like Mononoke and C while character design comes from Uki Atsuya (Cencoroll) with Yûichi Takahashi (Macross Frontier) adapting them. Kuricorder Quartet (Allison & Lillia) is composing the music.
This is being produced by A1 pictures (Blue Exorcist, Fairy Tail) and it will be aired in Fuji TV’s noitaminA block in April.
