The official website for Love&Art’s surfing-themed project WAVE!! began streaming the first three minutes of the first film in the WAVE!! Surfing Yappe!! anime film trilogy.
The trilogy’s three parts will open one after another on October 2, October 16, and October 30.
The project’s story is set in the city of Ōarai in Ibaraki prefecture, and centres on Masaki Hinaoka, who befriends transfer student Shō Akitsuki before the summer break, and ends up getting hooked on surfing. Through the sport, Masaki will get to know new friends, and will also drift apart from them in his journey to adulthood.
The eight main cast members sing the trilogy’s opening theme song “Densetsu no Surf Prince” (Legendary Surf Prince) as their respective characters in the unit Naminori Boys (“Surfing Boys,” abbreviated NBS). The two main cast members of the first part, Maeno and Ogasawara, sing that part’s ending theme song “Beat Blue Beat” as their respective characters.
