Ksuke and his childhood buddy Natsume are the main characters in the anime “adventure fantasy as summer closes.” Recently having reached sixth grade, the two have begun to shun one another as their friendship enters an uncomfortable stage. They visit the apartment complex where the two of them had resided one day while on summer vacation; it is going to be destroyed. The entire structure is suddenly encircled by an ocean as Ksuke, Natsume, and their pals become entangled in a bizarre phenomena. From the swaying building, the group of pals must attempt to navigate their way home.
