To Your Eternity (Japanese: 不滅のあなたへ Hepburn: Fumetsu no anata he, lit. "To You, the Immortal") is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshitoki Ōima. It has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Magazine since November 9, 2016, with the individual chapters collected and published by Kodansha into seven tankōbon volumes as of May 2018[update]. The story follows an immortal being whose purpose is to gain knowledge of the world. As the story progresses, this being takes the form of an abandoned boy and his wolf. The series has been licensed by Kodansha USA for a digital and printed English release.
It, a mysterious immortal being, is sent to the Earth with no emotions nor identity. However, It is able to take the shape of those around that have a strong impetus. At first, It is a sphere. Then, It imitates the form of a rock. As the temperature drops and snow falls atop the moss, It inherits the moss. When an injured, lone wolf comes limping by and lays down to die, It takes on the form of the animal. Finally, It gains consciousness and begins to traverse the empty tundra until It meets a boy. The boy lives alone in a ghost town, which the adults abandoned long ago in search of the paradise said to exist far beyond the endless sea of white tundra. However, their efforts were for naught, and now the boy is in a critical state. Acquiring the form of the boy, It sets off on a never-ending journey, in search of new experiences, places, and people.
After dying multiple deaths, he is found in a swamp by March, a young girl aspiring to be a caring mother, chosen to be a sacrifice to appease what they believe to be a rampaging bear spirit. She names the boy "Fushi", and befriends him, teaching him how to eat and become less feral.
Yoshitoki Ōima launched To Your Eternity in issue 50 of Kodansha's shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Magazine on November 9, 2016. The manga was announced on May 23, 2016.
