Production Notes:

Released as a TV special.

Based on a Saeko Himura novel, which was originally serialized in "Animage" magazine.

The only television drama produced by Studio Ghibli, this was made by younger members of the studio for a theme broadcast during the Golden Week holiday.

This was the first Studio Ghibli film directed by someone other than studio founders Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata; young director Tomomi Mochizuki headed a talented team of young Ghibli employees in creating this adaptation of Himuro's best-selling novel.

Director Tomomi Mochizuki was briefly hospitalized due to the stress of making this film and "Here is Greenwood" simultaneously.

This film was rarely seen outside Japan; it was never released in North America theatrically or on any home viewing format. Finally, it was screened at Vancouver's Pacific Cinematheque on December 12, 2012 as part of a Studio Ghibli retrospective.

Alternate Title: "海がきこえる."

English Titles: "Ocean Waves," "I Can Hear The Ocean," "I Can Hear The Sea."
