The shocks of the Renaissance-era discoveries are starting to graze in 15th-century Europe, just like those who are burned for heresy as a result of the discoveries themselves. In Poland, a child prodigy named Rafal is initiated into great theological studies, however, the encounter with a certain mysterious man will lead him to a truth considered heretical for the time: the heliocentric theory.

The short but intense manga, suitable for a mature and history-loving public, manages to evoke one of the darkest and most controversial periods of the Catholic religion which, in order to affirm dogmas and spiritual principles, was willing to everything, even to persecute and finally eliminate those who proposed against the trend. The inventions and scientific discoveries of the intellectuals of the fifteenth century in contrast with religious principles, to cite an example the Heliocentric Theory in contradiction to the Geocentric one, were considered heresies and the fulcrum of this manga is to recall the precariousness of the human genius put under press from the dominant entity of the time. But not only that.

The manga is not yet available in our country, however it deserves mention pending a future publication.






Madhouse Animates Tezuka Award Winner Manga ‘Chi: ChikyÅ« no Undō ni Tsuite’

Chi: On the Movements of the Earth is a series that breaks the barriers of shonen, isekai, and other such common genres to reflect on a subject that very few have touched upon.


Set in mid-15th century Poland, the manga focuses on the fate of ‘heretical’ thinkers for their theories that stood against the religious beliefs of that time. The protagonist, Rafal, a genius 12-year-old has to decide if he wants to pursue the truth or live his life in peace while suppressing his curiosity.


Chi: On the Movements of the Earth is set to receive an anime adaptation that will show you the bigotry present in the world during the Middle Ages. Studio Madhouse has taken up the series’ animation production.

The announcement was published in issue 30 of the Big Comics Spirits magazine.


Chi -ChikyÅ« no Undō ni Tsuite won the Grand Prize at the 26th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize awards in April. The manga’s plot and portrayals are proof enough that it is truly deserving of the award.


Uoto has presented the story of those humans who have sacrificed their lives to prove the heliocentric theory. The manga is filled to the brim with realistic depictions of how scientific-minded people used to be tortured and killed.


In the midst of this chaos, we encounter Rafal, a prodigy who dreams of astronomy but is pressurized into pursuing theology, the most celebrated subject of the time.


The upcoming anime will show how Rafal breaks away from the old mindset and pursues his dream in secrecy, all the while knowing that a single slip will only lead to death.
