The manga will appear in Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan magazine, which launched on October 25. The Sakasama no Patema site also revealed that Yoshiura will appear at the Wonder Festival event in Chiba's Makuhari Messe convention center on February 12. Details about the manga and Yoshiura's appearance will appear on the film website's news page.
Yoshiura is writing and directing the Sakasama no Patema film, and the anime studio Purple Cow Studio Japan is producing the project for release in Japan this year. The story follows a girl named Patema who lives in an underground village. Patema loves to explore the abundant tunnels, but her village bans entry to her favorite place and labels it a "danger zone." Despite warnings, Patema strives to uncover the secrets of her underground world.
Yoshiura previously wrote, "This new animation is … a story about girl-meets-boy, and boy-meets-girl. It is an extremely righteous, but also extremely strange, story."
