NIS America has announced that they have picked up another P.A. Works show, Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea. The series is currently airing in Japan and is planned to have 26 episodes in total (as of this posting 12 episodes have aired). Both Crunchyroll and Hulu have episodes up to stream, and NIS says they will be releasing the series at retail sometime in the future. I’ve been a fan of all the P.A. Works produced anime I have seen so far, and the concept of this one has humans living under and above water which sounds pretty neat.

Santa Ana, CA (December 13, 2013) – NIS America is thrilled to announce its acquisition of Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea for the North American market. The title is currently available for viewing on both Hulu and Crunchyroll. A retail release is also planned for the title, with launch details to be announced at a future date.

About the show:

Long ago, all humans lived in the ocean. But some who longed for the land abandoned the water, and cast off the special raiments granted to them by the sea god to adapt them to life under the sea…

Though mankind was divided into sea and land dwellers, each with different ways of thinking, they were all still fellow humans, and they continued to maintain contact as time went on.

Hikari Sakishima, Manaka Mukaido, Chisaki Hiradaira, and Kaname Isaki live in an undersea village, while Tsumugu Kihara lives on land.

When these land and sea dwellers meet for the first time during their second year of middle school, their hearts begin to undulate like the tides.

The youthful fantasy tale of these young people’s lives unfolds in a strange and beautiful world.
