Blue Giant Anime Film Storyline
Dai Miyamoto is in his senior year of high school. He plays basketball, works part-time at a gas station, and lives alone with his father and little sister. A very average teenager, in other words. But for many years he has also been a passionate jazz fan – a somewhat unusual hobby for a boy these days. He tirelessly rehearses with his saxophone – whenever and wherever. Dai’s goal, he wants to become a giant of jazz music. All his friends find his passion rather uncool.
The first performances – anything but encouraging, but Dai holds on to his dream and does not give up!
