Feel Kenshi Yonezu's Lyrical World in Children of The Sea Theme Song Anime Music Video

"Umi no Yuurei" will be digitally released on June 3

After the screening event held in a ship floated in Tokyo Bay last night, a four-minute music video for "Umi no Yuurei" (The ghost in the sea), the theme song for the forthcoming anime film adaptation of Daisuke Igarashi's award-winning fantasy manga Kaiju no Kodomo/Children of the Sea was also posted on YouTube.


The song is written/composed/arranged/performed by 28-year-old Japanese singer-songwriter Kenshi Yonezu, and will be digitally released on June 3, four days before the film's release in Japan. He has been a big fan of the manga since his teenage years, and has kept good relationship with the manga author since the "Louvre No. 9 — Manga, the 9th Art" exhibition in 2016, for which he wrote the theme song.
