Synopsis of Fumetsu no Anata
An Orb, known only as “It”, is launched to Earth to be observed from afar. Able to change the shape of beings whose reflections it captures, it first turns into a rock and then, due to the increase in temperature, into moss. He is inept to move until one snowy day, a wolf on the verge of death barely passes. When he takes the form of the animal, he becomes aware of its existence and begins to wander with an unclear destination in mind. Soon, he meets the wolf’s master, a young man who waits for his tribe to return from a paradise full of fish and fruit in the south. Although the boy feels lonely, he still hopes that those whom he loves in memories of him have not forgotten him and that he will one day be reunited with them.
The boy wants to explore new surroundings and decides to leave his home with “It” to find paradise using the footprints left by his tribe. However, with a seriously injured body and not seeing his older comrades, what will become of the boy? Fumetsu no Anata and illustrates the story of an immortal being that humanity experiences, meeting all kinds of people in many places throughout time.
