Title: Ocean waves(Umi ga Kikoeru)
Director: Tomomi Mochizuki
Studio: Ghibli
Genres: drama, romance, slice of life
Premiered on: 1993-05-05
Runtime: 72 minutes

Plot: Ocean Waves is high school love story set in Kochi, Japan. Morisaku Taku and Matsuno Yutaka are best friends when a girl from Tokyo named Muto Rikako transfers to their school. Excluding herself from group activities, she’s eventually labeled a snob. Matsuno has a crush on Rikako, so it’s no surprise that he gets a little jealous when Morisaku and Rikako start spending more time together. The rumors around school get worse, but Morisaku still insists there is nothing between him and Rikako.

Nice slice of life romantic movie. The animation is again wonderful from Ghibli. Though the movie was a bit short for my liking. Not much character development. My rating: 7/10.

To be honest I didn't like the seemed more like a half-hearted attempt at romance.Viewers would probably be able to relate to Yutaka and Taku's characters better..Rikako's character is anything but likable.
At the very best this movie could be called okayish..
