A short art animation adaptation for Totsukuni no Shoujo manga has been announced. It will be bundled in eighth volume of the manga to be released on September 10. Wit Studio will be producing the short anime with Yuutarou Kubo and Satomi Maiya, who worked on Ribbon key animation, as video directors.

Synopsis
Long ago, there was a god of light and a god of darkness. While those devoted to the god of light experienced happiness and good fortune, the god of darkness would play tricks on the people and steal their joy. And so, as the legend goes, the god of light decided to punish him by turning him into a monster. Enraged by this, the god of darkness wielded his punishment as a curse in order to inflict suffering upon others. Because of his actions, he was banished to the Outside, where he and his monstrous children are to remain for eternity, while those from the Inside must never come in contact with someone from the Outside, lest they be cursed with a hideous form.

A little girl named Shiva, an Insider, is found by an Outsider she comes to know as Sensei. Though they cannot touch, Sensei cares for Shiva as best he can, and together they live a moderately happy life. But soon, Shiva not only finds herself in danger from the Outside, but from her own kind as well. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Totsukuni no Shoujo is by Nagabe, which serialized via Comic Garden magazine since September 2015. Seventh compiled volume has just released today on March 9. Seven Seas Entertainment has been publishing the manga in English as The Girl From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún since January 2017, and seventh compiled volume is scheduled for August 27 release. There are also French, Polish, and Spanish release for the manga.

The manga was also chosen in 45th Festival international de la bande dessinée d'Angoulême as Sélection officielle last year.

Oh, the key visual sort of reminds me of Mahoutsukai no Yome but the synopsis suggests otherwise.

Looks pretty cool, nevertheless, and it’s always great to see Wit Studio adaptions! For now, I’ll keep an eye on this.

It's actually really similar to Mahoutsukai no Yome. Totsukuni is pretty much a darker, less romantic version of it.

I'm glad to hear, Yuutaro Kubo getting the opportunity to work on one of my current favorite mystery fantasy manga, sounds promising.

This is a beta test for a TV anime, right? Since the art style is so out there, they obviously have to see if it's actually DOABLE before throwing eggs in its basket, right?

I don't even care if it isn't an entire series, I'm just really glad it got noticed by a studio in the first place.

Definitely got some Mahoutsukai vibes to it from what I've seen. I'll be looking forward to this.

Remember looking at this in the recommended section of my usual "to go" librairy.
The art immediately grasped my attention I decided to read the first 2 volumes to see where this was going ... gosh is it such a good take on a simple premise.

I hope this would lead to something bigger like a TV series cuz it deserves too.
