Sango Shou Densetsu Aoi Umi no Elfie-492760317-large.jpg

The legend of the Coral Island: Elfie of the Blue Seas (サンゴ礁伝説 青い海のエルフィ, Sango-sho Densetsu: Aoi Umi no Elfie) is a 1986 Japanese anime fantasy adventure television film directed by Yoshio Kuroda, with Sumi Shimamoto voicing Elfie herself. It was originally broadcast on May 19, 1986 on Fuji Television.

In the future, the oceans have risen to flood all the continents due to humanity's negligence of the environment. Only a few bits of land have been spared, and one of those is the city-island where a quiet young girl named Elfie lives with her grandfather.

One day, due to an incident where Elfie loses her underwater breathing device while still submerged in the sea, she discovers that she can breathe when still in the water, and her originally brown hair turns blue when this happens. Her grandfather reveals that in truth she is one of the mythical sea-people, who can survive under the sea. . .

Using the city folk's xenophobia, local politicians spark a war with these hidden people to distract people from their current resource problems. As a result of being a sea-girl raised by humans, Elfie is caught in the middle of it and she takes two decisions: to find out more about her origins and to stop the the war no matter what.

Tropes used in Elfie of the Blue Seas include:
