'The Girl from the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún' Manga Ends in 11th Volume in April
posted on by Adriana Hazra
In a world split between the Inside and the Outside, those living in both realms are told never to cross over to the other side, lest they be cursed. A young girl named Shiva lives on the other side, in a vacant village with a demonic guardian known only as “Teacher.” Although the two are forbidden to touch, they seem to share a bond that transcends their disparate appearances. But when Shiva leaves Teacher's care to seek out her grandmother, the secret behind her mysterious living arrangement comes to light.
Wit Studio produced a 10-minute anime adaptation of the manga that premiered at the Fantasia Festival in Montreal in August 2019. The anime has a DVD that bundled with the limited edition of the manga's eighth compiled book volume in September 2019. The anime is competing in the Short Animation for Young Audiences 6-12 division of the Films/Videos Made for Young Audiences category at this year's Ottawa International Animation Festival, which will be held from September 23 to October 4.
The American Library Association's (ALA's) Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) ranked the manga on its list of Great Graphic Novels for Teens in 2018 and 2019. The manga was also nominated for the Best Comic award at the 45th Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2018.
