In a world covered by oceans of sand, 513 people live in complete isolation on the "Mud Whale," an island-like ship adrift on the sand. Children of the Whales is an adaptation by director Kyohei Ishiguro and anime studio J.C.Staff based on Abi Umeda's hit manga of the same name (serialized in Akita Shoten's "Monthly Mystery Bonita"). Chakuro, the island's archivist endowed with special powers, meets a mysterious girl named Rikosu as he investigates an abandoned ship that drifted up to the Mud Whale one day. It is the first time anyone on the island has made contact with someone from the outside world, but is it an auspicious sign that a new world awaits?
