English Summary:

Ocean Waves, also known as I Can Hear the Sea (Japanese: 海がきこえる, Hepburn: Umi ga Kikoeru), is a 1993 Japanese anime television film directed by Tomomi Mochizuki and written by Kaori Nakamura based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Saeko Himuro. It was animated by Studio Ghibli for Tokuma Shoten and the Nippon Television Network. Ocean Waves first aired on May 5, 1993 on Nippon TV.

At Kichijōji Station, Tokyo, Taku Morisaki glimpses a familiar woman on the platform opposite. Later, as his flight to Kōchi Prefecture takes off, he narrates the events that brought her into his life. The story is told in flashback.

In Kōchi, two years prior, Taku receives a call from his friend, Yutaka Matsuno, asking to meet at their high school. He finds Yutaka at a window, watching an attractive female transfer student whom Yutaka was asked to show around. The boys discuss their upcoming school trip to Hawaii. At the school gates, Taku is introduced to the new girl, Rikako Muto. She thanks Yutaka for providing directions to a bookstore. Taku teases Yutaka about his infatuation.

 

Japanese Summary:

氷室冴子による小説で、徳間書店のアニメ雑誌『月刊アニメージュ』に23回(1990年2月号 - 1992年1月号[注 1])に渡って連載され、のちに単行本として出版された[2][3]土佐・高知を舞台に、地元の男子高校生と東京から転校してきた女子高生がたどる青春の軌跡を描き、スタジオジブリの映画「魔女の宅急便」のキャラクターデザイナー・作画監督であった近藤勝也[注 2]が挿絵を担当したことも話題となって若い世代を中心にじわじわと人気を集めた[3][4]。雑誌連載で用いられた挿絵は氷室の構想メモをもとに近藤勝也が描いたもので、氷室自身も近藤の挿絵に触発された。そのため、懐かしさやノスタルジーを感じさせる独特の雰囲気のある作品ができたのだという[5]

アニメ誌に連載されたきっかけは、当時の『アニメージュ』編集部が「アニメ絡みでない、メジャーな作家さんの作品を載せたい」と考えたことだった。徳間書店の編集者だった三ツ木早苗は、当代の人気作家だった氷室冴子に本を書かせてその原作を元にジブリで映像化することを目論んだ。当時の氷室は集英社のお抱え作家で少女向け文庫レーベル・コバルト文庫の第一人者だったため、そこに食い込むのは至難の業だったが、三ツ木はジブリを餌にそれを実現した[3]。ジブリの『魔女の宅急便』の試写会の際に「この映画と同じようなエンディングの作品を書きたい」と氷室が感想を述べた時に、連載はほぼ決定づけられた[5]
