■ “Kaina of the Heavy Snow Sea” project PV
■ Comment from the original author Tsutomu Nihei
“Kaina of the Heavy Snow Sea” is a story that has been involved for a long time.
It ’s the fact that your ideas are shaped by the hands of others.
It’s a mysterious feeling that is a little different from having the drawn manga visualized.
First of all, as a manga by Itoe Takemoto
After that, as an anime, I hope everyone will enjoy this work!
■ Tsutomu Nihei Original draft visual
■ “Kaina of the heavy snow sea”
A different world where the earth is about to disappear due to the ever-expanding “Snow Sea”.
People barely lived on the “heavenly membrane” that spreads from the roots and tops of the giant tree “Orbital Tree”.
When the celestial boy Kaina meets the earthly girl Ririha, a story that changes the perishing world begins.
This work is a project created by Tsutomu Nihei, a manga artist who has received high praise from all over the world, and Polygon Pictures, which has animated Tsutomu Nihei’s work with overwhelming quality.
