A goldfish sneaks faraway from home and floats off on the rear of a jellyfish. After getting stuck during a glass jar, she drifts to the shore where she is freed by Sousuke, a five-year-old boy who lives together with his mother Lisa during a house by the ocean while his father Koichi works on a fishing smack . After healing a cut on Sousuke’s finger by licking it, the goldfish is known as Ponyo by her new friend.

Unknown to Sousuke, Ponyo already features a name and a family. Her father Fujimoto, a sorcerer who forsook his humanity to measure underwater, searches frantically for his daughter Brunhilde. When found and captured, Ponyo rejects her birth name and declares that she wants to become a person’s . Using the facility received from Sousuke’s blood, she grows arms and legs and escapes to the surface another time . But the magic released into the ocean causes an imbalance in nature, causing the Moon to start out rupture of orbit and therefore the tides to grow dangerously stronger. Reunited with Ponyo, Sousuke must pass an ancient test to revive order within the world and let his companion survive as a person’s.
