Kin no Kuni Mizu no Kuni is based on the Shogakukan-published manga by Nao Iwamoto, which ran from 2014 to 2016 in Monthly Flowers and has one tankoubon volume published under the Flower Comics label. The premise involves two constantly bickering neighboring countries that eventually go to war, causing God to intervene. Country A is told to offer its most beautiful girl as a bride, while Country B is told to send its wisest young man as a groom. In the midst of this, the princess of Country A has a chance meeting with a youth from Country B.

The movie’s staff includes Kotono Watanabe (BTOOM!) as director, Fumi Tsubota (Waccha PriMagi! and Hugtto! Pretty Cure series composer) as scriptwriter, and Mitsuki Masuhara (Ace of Diamond and Shirokuma Cafe director) as animation supervisor. Madhouse is the animation production company.

Meanwhile, the main cast includes Kento Kaku as Naranbayar and Minami Hamabe as Sarah.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
