The anime adaptation of Uoto‘s manga Orb: On the Movements of the Earth, produced by MADHOUSE, is scheduled to start in 2024. The announcement coincided with the release of the first tankoubon volume of Uoto‘s latest manga.
Orb: On the Movements of the Earth originally ran from 2020 to 2022 in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Spirits and has been compiled into eight volumes. It won the Best Comic category at the 54th Seiun Awards in August 2023.
Synopsis of the manga, according to Seven Seas Entertainment:
In fifteenth-century Europe, heretics are being burned at the stake. Rafal, a brilliant young man, is expected to enter university at an early age and study the era’s most important field, theology. But Rafal values Reason above all else, which leads him both to the shocking conclusion that the Earth orbits the Sun, and into the hands of the Inquisition!
A decade later, two members of the Watch Guild, the dour young Oczy and the cynical Gras, find a hidden stone chest that details the secrets of the universe Rafal left behind. Dare they try to change their own stars by selling the heretical texts, or would that only lead to the stake and the fire?
