Story of boy on snowbound field to run in Shōnen Magazine

This year's 49th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine confirmed on Wednesday that Yoshitoki Ōima (A Silent Voice) will launch her new fantasy manga, Fumetsu no Anata e (To You, the Immortal), in the next issue on November 9.

The magazine teases the story:

Kyū was abandoned alone on the surface. After wandering, Kyū finds a boy who lives in an isolated snowscape.

The manga's preview tagline reads, "A journey that begins from a farewell." The magazine also previously teased the manga with the text, "The knowing look, that passes through his eyes and tells of the world's kindness and severity, will wrench your heart." The first chapter will be 78 pages long with a color opening page.

Ōima began her A Silent Voice (Koe no Katachi) manga as a one-shot in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2011, and then turned the story into a full series in the main Shonen Magazine in August 2013. Kodansha published the manga's final chapter in November 2014. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in print in North America, and it released the seventh and final volume in May. Crunchyroll released the series in English simultaneously as Kodansha published new chapters in Japan.

Kyoto Animation adapted the manga into an anime film directed by Naoko Yamada (Tamako Market, Tamako Love Story, K-ON's two anime seasons and anime film). The film debuted in September.
