Synopsis

Nanami Simpson is a young girl. Her mother dies when she is young, and she goes to live with her father, Scott Simpson, on board a marine research vessel, the Peperonchino. Her father is a marine biologist, and he is in search of a creature known as the glowing whale. When he finds the bones of one of these, he is saddened, and resolves to change his mission toward preserving and caring for the creatures. Nanami befriends an Orca which she names Tico, and she goes swimming with it every day. Eventually, she learns to breathe underwater which astounds her father. Nanami nearly drowns one day, and one of the glowing whales saves her from certain death and returns her to the vessel, where her father finally gets to see it.

It's ironic that amongst the World Masterpiece Theatre Project which adapted so called famous children literature, Nanatsu no Umi no Tico or Tico of the Seven Sea seems like the only anime that cares about its targeted audience with an intriguing and breath-taking adventure from the start to the very end.

Produced by Nippon Animation in 1994, Tico of the Seven Sea is the only original work of the project. Getting rid of the usual set up, the anime present a lovely story about Nanami, who lives on a boat and travelled around the world with her dad and a mechanic. And wonderfully, she's friend with read more

Tico & Friends is a fun journey with some very likable characters. I can't say it's my favorite world masterpiece anime but fans of world masterpiece theater should definitely check it out.

Story - 8
The story focus's mainly on Scott's dream of finding the luminous whale. There are a few smaller arcs and one off episodes but mainly the story is centered around finding the luminous whale.

Art - 7
I liked the art, it is a bit simple, but the way the show depicts sea creatures and under water environments is nice.

Sound - 7
Sound is also fine, the intro and outro songs are catchy read more
