Mashima launched the manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in June 2018. Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English both digitally and in print. The company describes the story:
At Granbell Kingdom, an abandoned amusement park, Shiki has lived his entire life among machines. But one day, Rebecca and her cat companion Happy appear at the park’s front gates. Little do these newcomers know that this is the first human contact Granbell has had in a hundred years! As Shiki stumbles his way into making new friends, his former neighbors stir at an opportunity for a robo-rebellion…And when his old homeland becomes too dangerous, Shiki must join Rebecca and Happy on their spaceship and escape into the boundless cosmos.
The manga inspired a television anime that premiered on NTV and other channels on April 10. In Japan, the show premiered streaming on Netflix and Hulu on April 10, and is also streaming on other services in Japan. The show began streaming on Netflix outside of Japan on August 26.
