Kai’s quiet life in a traditional Japanese seaside town finally starts to rock and roil when he secretly joins a band with his classmates. His true interest is where they practice—on the foreboding Merfolk Island—a place that turns out to be even wilder than the town lore suggests. Enter Lu: a mermaid girl with the soul and voice of a pop star, who steals the show in this shape-shifting, musical/anime hybrid.
