Oh, would you look at the time! As it so happens, almost a year ago we did a podcast on an anime movie from Science Saru, directed by Masaaki Yuasa, about folks and the ocean. So what better time to talk about an anime movie from Science Saru, directed by Masaaki Yuasa, about folks and the ocean! Only this time, it’s the movie Lu Over the Wall. It’s about a Tokyo kid stuck in a sleepy ocean town. It’s full of fun, dancing, and as it turns out… mild potential horror?

Now maybe you you’d think, “Oh, there is no way someone can make two anime movies about the ocean that also have a very heavy music component and yet be all kinds of different!” Well, to that we would love to introduce this director guy. His name is Masaaki Yuasa, and he is a mad genius. This is a podcast about an anime movie he directed, with the studio Science Saru.


So many ways to watch this movie right now! It’s on Netflix, or you can just buy the dang thing on Blu-ray! (Basil swore he saw it on HBO Max, but it gone now.) Hopefully you are able to do one of these things, because it is absolutely deserves a watch or multiple. Other things we recommend you do is check out our Discord! And if you are feeling generous, we do have a Patreon . We also have Time Cues!
