Ever since the death of his grandfather, Yasuji, Kousuke Kumagaya has grown distant from his close friend, Natsume Tonai. Having grown up together like siblings in the same apartment building, the two now find themselves at odds with one another due to Natsume's inability to let go of the past. This rift is further exacerbated by the news that their former complex will soon be demolished.

Hearing about a ghost that is supposedly haunting the old complex, Kousuke's friends drag him into the demolition site to look around. When Kousuke finds that Natsume is also there, they get into an argument over an old camera that once belonged to Yasuji. This results in Natsume running off with it, but just as she is about to fall off the rooftop, a torrential downpour envelops the entire building, flooding the ground around it.

The young children now find themselves drifting at sea with the apartment building acting as their ship. Unable to communicate with the rest of the world, Natsume and Kousuke must reconcile their differences if they want to stand a chance at finding their way home.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The apartment complex where the film is set is modeled after the original designs of the Hibarigaoka Danchi, which was one of the largest housing complexes in Tokyo during its time.

Such a studio colorido film. One of my top fav anime movies. I just started loving it by the bond they have amongst natsume,noppo, and kausuke portraying their emotions so Determinatively and their rescue actions, all those nostalgia of apartment bringing up their true unbounded love for trees.

I love these genre of films and this is truly unique in my perspective.

As it's a studio colorido movie , no doubt that you'll enjoy ...

Mixed Feelings
Stunning visual - which contributes to most of my rating for this. Another that contributes is the kids' ingenuity in surviving with limited resources.

Plot and concept isn't new, but they don't detract from the watching experience or the rating. What did, is how long this movie dragged on, just to prolong the melodrama. Noppo and Natsume should be the characters easiest to sympathize with (in my opinion), but the meandering drama and supposedly tear-jerking moments prevented me from truly feel for them. There are moments when Natsume just stood there, absorbed in a reminiscence, when they were pressed for time and could not afford to ...

I don't know what it is with anime's these days having such an intriguing plot and meaningful theme but then just completely butchering the specifics. On the surface, Drifting Home is a story of childhood friendships and maturing as you learn to move on. The kids in the film find themselves at an old apartment complex that is set to be torn down - only for it, and them, to be transported into the middle of the ocean.

You'd think that the characters with such a close proximity and nowhere to go, there'd be plenty of opportunity to explore the bonds between the children. And ...
