On his Twitter account, manga author Tsuyoshi Isomoto announced that the first volume of the comic version of Netflix series Eden was released on August 16, 2021.
Eden is a four-episode 3DCG Netflix animated series created, produced by Justin Leach, and directed by Yasuhiro Irie. The series is based on a concept by Christophe Ferreira. It is a sci-fi story set thousands of years into the future where humans no longer exist and the city of "Eden" is inhabited solely by robots. Two maintenance robots accidentally stumble upon a human baby girl and awaken her from stasis. Together, they decide to raise the child in secret. The creators say this work drew inspiration from the works of Hayao Miyazaki (specifically Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind) and Steven Spielberg (specifically ET and Indiana Jones).
Publisher Shounen Gahousha features the comicalized Eden on the cover of their monthly YOUNG KING OURs GH October 2021 issue.
Synopsis of Eden by Netflix's press release:
Thousands of years in the future, a city known as “Eden” is inhabited solely by Artificially Intelligent robots whose former masters vanished long ago. On a routine assignment, within the depths of the city, two maintenance robots accidentally awaken a human baby girl from stasis questioning all they were taught to believe-- that humans were nothing more than a forbidden ancient myth. Together, the two robots secretly raise the child in a safe haven outside Eden.
