Children of the Sea is an upcoming animated film adaptation of Daisuke Igarashi’s manga of the same name. It is being animated by Studio 4°C and is set for release in Japan on June 7, 2019.
In the meantime, as part of its promotion, it has been announced that the Odakyu Odawara Line will collaborate with the film.
From May 13 onward, trains along this train line will be decorated with Children of the Sea promotional posters and information. And on June 1, those who board the Enoshima Limited Express Romancecar will hear announcements made by Hiiro Ishibashi who is voicing Umi in the film.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. A stamp rally will take place from June 1 to June 30. If you collect more than two of the six stamps available across six areas in the Enoshima area (where the film is set) and major stations on the Odakyu Line you’ll receive an original novelty. Those who manage to obtain all the stamps will be randomly selected to win signed merchandise, poster and more. Stamps are to be presented at the Enoshima Aquarium where a model of a dugong will be housed, the marine animal that Umi and Sora are raised by in the film.
Board the Odakyu Odawara Line and take a trip to Enoshima where the film is set and immerse yourself in the world of Children of the Sea.
