J-pop singer-songwriter Kenshi Yonezu released the new music video accompanying his highly anticipated new song "Umi no Yuurei" on Tuesday (May 28), following a special sneak peek event for fans the day before.
"Umi no Yuurei," which means "Ghost of the Sea" in English, is the theme song of the upcoming animated movie called Children of the Sea directed by Ayumu Watanabe. The music video features scenes from the movie throughout, showcasing the delicate yet dynamic depictions of nature, sea creatures and human characters brought vividly to life by the Japanese animation company STUDIO 4?.
A group of 100 randomly selected fans among the many who applied were invited to the special preview event Monday (May 27), which took place on a moored boat in Tokyo. The theme of the lowest deck was "the deep sea," featuring displays of various sea creatures such as rare jellyfish and starfish curated by the Enoshima Aquarium, depicted in the movie as "Enokura Aquarium."
