The Girl from the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún (The subtitle is the title of a traditional Irish song) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Nagabe. It was serialized in Mag Garden’s shonen manga magazine Monthly Comic Garden from September 2015 to March 2021, with its chapters collected into eleven tankobon volumes. The manga is licensed in North America by Seven Seas Entertainment.
A 10-minute original animation DVD (OAD) adaptation by Wit Studio was released with the limited edition of the manga’s eighth volume in Japan in September 2019. A feature-length OAD, also by Wit Studio, was released with the manga’s bonus volume in March 2022.
The feature-length film was nominated for the Feature Films Competition at the 9th New Chitose International Animation Film Festival in 2022.
MAL describes the plot as:
Let not an Outsider touch thee,
Lest thou shalt be cursed forever.
Once upon a time, in a land far away that was divided into two realms…
The Outside was roamed by teratomorphic creatures who had the power to curse whoever they touched. Humans could live safely only in the Inside. But when a lost little girl from the Inside named Shiva, and a demonic beast-looking Outsider simply known as “Teacher” initiate a quiet coexistence on the same side of the forest, their bond seems to transcend their incompatible natures. It is the beginning of a folktale about two outcasts -one human, one inhuman- who linger in the hazy twilight that separates night from day.
