Fumetsu no Anata and tells the story of a lonely boy who encounters a wolf in his wanderings through the Arctic regions of North America. The boy and the wolf become great friends! And how the two were alone helps each other.
But the story is not just that, because besides the environment in which they live their adventures, each one has a past that will interfere in their monotonous life.
The protagonist of Fumetsu no Anata and the boy is called Fushi, who is actually a kind of immortal spirit or divine entity that assumes various forms of people, objects, animals… everything that catches his attention including that of boy and wolf.
The boy initially has no expressions, no identity, no feeling, it is as if his body were an empty box that moves. And as Fushi takes on different forms along his journey he manages to have powers and to develop better.
The drama part of the anime is Fushi's enemies, so to speak, who are able to steal his forms identified as Knockers, who look a lot like plants. Furthermore, there is a figure that arouses curiosity in Fumetso no Anata and that it is a very powerful being, wearing a black hood all the time and that Fushi claims to be the one who created him.
Fushi fights a lot to fight the Knockers, there were centuries of battles to stop them and when defeated Fushi is in charge of spreading other versions of him around the world so as not to risk these creatures coming back.
Fumetsu no Anata and is not a simple story of friendship between a boy and a wolf, but in a way that a being seeks to gain self-knowledge in order to give meaning to his existence.
The character is discovering himself throughout the anime because as he is just a being, Fushi should behave according to the body or matter he takes for himself, so he will adapt and learn little by little. That's why he's not considered civilized.
So much so that Fushi is a name that the immortal being receives after materializing as a boy when he is taught and helped by another character in the plot.
Fumetsu no Anata and has several scenarios that portrays other civilizations, cultures and types of traditions. The anime also portrays conflicts and losses. And the character evolves and learns with each experience.

Already manga Fumetsu no Anata and was critically acclaimed. Released in 2016 just a year later it was announced that the manga would be published digitally. After all, nowadays although manga are well accepted all over the world, it is no longer advantageous to have only printed versions. Collectors who care more about having these versions.
The anime Fumetsu no Anata and is becoming popular and draws so much attention because of the theme of life and death. People have a lot of doubts about these matters, especially if there is an afterlife.
Something that may also have contributed to the anime being one of the most anticipated of the season are the criticisms that are implied throughout the story. Like the fact that the protagonist can transform into whatever he wants, even a rock showing that we can wear masks and be whoever we want.
All the changes Fushi makes helps him to become a "better" human so to speak. But remembering that the character only appropriates a body after the death of the animal or person, or simply an inanimate object.
The idea of Fumetsu no Anata and
All anime or manga it has a certain inspiration behind it or a story of how the idea of making the story came about! In the case of Fumetsu no Anata and it was no different!
The author Yoshitoki Oima he wrote the manga in order to pay homage to his grandmother who was very ill. She was already sure that her grandmother would die, so that came the idea of putting in the plot the representation of life and death.
