"The House of the Lost on the Cape" is a daily fantasy that depicts the communal life of families with no blood connection, set in "Mayoiga", an old folk house with a view of the sea that makes you feel nostalgic and warm. In 2021, which marks the 10th anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake, it will be produced as part of "Zutto Ouen. Project 2011 + 10 ...", which delivers three anime works set in the disaster area.
