This article discusses the Netflix anime film Drifting Home, including the premise, release date, voice cast, and trailer.

An anime film with the original title of “Ame wo Tsugeru Hyôryû Danchi” could be light-hearted, quirky, and funny. Going on the title alone, it seems like it is going to have a large part of the story set by the sea. But am I correct? Read to find out more about Drifting Home.

Netflix anime film Drifting Home premise

Courtesy of IMDB — Kosuke and Natsume have been friends since childhood, but as time goes on, the relationship between the two sixth graders seems strained as they keep avoiding one another. One day during their summer vacation, they go to a housing complex that is scheduled to be demolished. Having grown up there, the place holds a lot of memories, but while playing, they suddenly get caught up in a mysterious phenomenon, and when they regain consciousness, they see an entire ocean before them as the housing complex has drifted into a mysterious sea and Kosuke and Natsume with it. Will they be able to return to their previous world? A summer farewell journey begins.

Our opinion of the premise

Feature-length anime films aren’t usually my go-to films, but this one sounds quite interesting! And considering it comes from Studio Colorido, which is known for “Penguin Highway,” which was nominated for Best Animation at the 42nd Japan Academy Film Prize, and “A Whisker Away, it sounds like it could be a good watch!
