Netflix isn’t just investing in anime series as they’ve also picked up some feature-length animations. Drifting Home is one.
Here’s how IMDB sums up the dramatic story;
Kosuke and Natsume have been friends since childhood, but as time goes on the relationship between the two sixth graders seems strained as they keep avoiding one another. One day during their summer vacation, they go to a housing complex that is scheduled to be demolished. Having grown up there, the place holds a lot of memories, but while playing, they suddenly get caught up in a mysterious phenomenon and when they regain consciousness, they see an entire ocean before them as the housing complex has drifted into a mysterious sea and Kosuke and Natsume with it. Will they be able to return to their previous world? A summer farewell journey begins.
That trailer doesn’t contain any spoilers; it shows what the synopsis says, but what’s else to reveal? Whether the kids get home? We certainly get a good idea of what happens on their is-it-seafaring adventure.
The trailer also includes the anime’s theme song, “It Seems I’m Fading Away” by Zutto Mayonaka de Iinoni.
Netflix gets Drifting Home in September, but Studio Colorido’s third anime is getting a cinematic release too.
