“Children of the Sea” has achieved the impossible.

The new animated film from Studio 4°C adapts the manga of the same name by Daisuke Igarashi — whose idiosyncratic, wispy illustrations, with their huge numbers of flowing lines, always seemed impractical, if not downright impossible to bring into the world of animation. But director Ayumu Watanabe and his team have somehow pulled it off. No shortcuts, no compromise — just Igarashi’s art translated directly to anime. This is one of the most beautifully animated films I’ve seen in years.
