Lu denotes Yuasa's first attack into family films, and is maybe his most standard discharge so far therefore. Does his turn into going for a more extensive gathering of people imply that a craftsman known for an exceptionally unmistakable style has needed to make bargains? In view of the completed outcome, I will need to expect the response to that is a firm "no". The story is an advanced tall tale that offers a conspicuous genealogy with The Little Mermaid and Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo. It happens in a shoreline town which depends predominantly on angling, yet where folktales endure of fiendish merfolk.
Middleschooler Kai, who has as of late moved to town with his dad, isn't an aficionado of the town or it's kin, yet his life takes a turn when he experiences an inquisitive youthful mermaid named Lu. The correlation with Ponyo is maybe inescapable, and the outline of Lu herself doesn't generally help it in such manner. It's an obligation that the film appears to wink to itself, with a concise appearance of a character who bears an uncanny resemblance to that film's male lead. Be that as it may, in spite of any shallow similitudes, this is another pot of fish totally. While still a family film, this skews more established than Ponyo and feels diverse thus.
A key plot component of the film is the band Kai joins with a couple of companions. Music has a noteworthy impact through the film and it's the music played by the children's band SIEREN that pulls in Lu to meet Kai in any case, and later his companions as well. The evident age contrast amongst Kai and Lu guarantees this is a non-romantic relationship or considerably to a greater degree a major sibling/younger sibling bond. There is one brief scene that muddies the water a bit, yet it never strays too far into the faulty domain. As far as plot, the film is moderately customary.
The characters too are not a long way from those you have likely observed ordinarily previously. Kai himself isn't a long way from the conventional gathering of people embed male lead. Lu fits the standard sort of the inquisitive and guileless outsider/outcast actually a fish out of water-and his companions are the exemplary spunky young lady and babble box fellow. Whatever is left of the town is populated for the most part by prime examples. None of this issues however, as the experience of watching the film is one of a kind. In any Yuasa film or arrangement, the head idea is infrequently the plot, however the execution.
