We had a creeping feeling you guys would propel Unico and Atomcat to Kickstarter victory while we were at Anime Expo, and sure enough we had to buckle down during the convention and announce the next stretch goal for our Kickstarter: Triton of the Sea!
Originally published in the Sankei Shinbun from 1969 to 1971, Triton of the Sea is the sci-fi adventure tale of Triton, a young boy who was discovered abandoned as an infant by the seaside. With him comes disaster – a tsunami hits the seaside home of his adoptive family, and they’re forced to move to Tokyo to eek out a living. As Triton grows, he becomes a skilled swimmer and learns that there’s more to him than meets the eye. In reality, Triton is an Atlantean who escaped the lost continent’s destruction at the hands of Poseidon. With a dolphin named Luka at his side, Triton sets off on a journey to avenge his family and his homeland.
A coming-of-age tale set again the background of an epic adventure, Triton of the Sea is acclaimed for its thrilling art and action as well as its moral and environmental themes. With cautionary messages about human prejudice and our fragile world, Triton blends a touching family tale with a global battle for the soul of the sea!
If the Kickstarter reaches $47,000, we’ll be able to bring both volumes (over 400 pages per volume!) to bookshelves everywhere! Anyone who’s pledged $50 in the campaign so far will automatically receive vol. 1 of Triton when we reach this goal, and anyone who’s pledged over $100 will automatically receive both volumes of Triton! Just want to pledge for the books? You can do that too!
