a 17 year old girl in her senior year in Taiji just discovered that she is a dolphin spirit in a human body! along with her Twin flame , they discover their purpose for being here is to restore balance to land and sea through art. and seemingly impossible feats. They go on an epic adventure to prove that dolphins are a "Takara", treasure, in Japanese.


Help this movie come to life with your generous donation! I have been thinking about making this move for a while but do not have tools such as a digital tablet, animating software, classes ect. This movie is to raise awareness of the value of dolphins, especially for Japan, and the whole world.


I always figured that the true power of stopping disrespect to dolphins in Japan is in the Japanese people, and movies, especially anime, is a favorite animating style that millions of Japanese and others around the world watch. Even if it is based in Japan it will mention slaughters around the world including the Faroes. With your help I can make this happen, and possibly have this movie screened in Japan!!


As a long time artist , anime lover and having been drawing dolphins and whales my whole life, it would be a dream come true to see my art come to life, and make a difference in the world!!


As a HUGE THANK YOU for all of our Donators, you will get access to a secret group on Facebook for exclusive insight of the step by step process of creating the film (including scenes, character development, and more, not shown on the Movie page or anywhere else!!)


if you are interested, just Private Message me on the Spirit of Iruka Page on facebook!:


The money is also to fund my trip to Taiji for inspration for the movie (which takes place in Taiji)


Awakened by a series of visions, I discovered that in my past life, I was one of the dolphins that was brutally slaughtered in the cove of Taiji, Japan, as well as pilot whales in the Faroes. I went through Post traumatic stress overcoming the triggers that came to me in my daily life, juggling human responsibilities along with the sadness of being away from the sea and the life that was taken from me.


After thinking much about it I decided to make this anime film and go to Taiji myself for Soul Healing. Hopefully I will be able to step on the very area in the cove where I took my last breath, and make peace with my past, create a wonderful present and a heart-felt movie for future generations to come!!!
