Kaina of the Great Snow Sea, also known as Ooyukiumi no Kaina, is an original anime series created by Tsutomu Nihei. The television anime commemorates Polygon Pictures’ 40th anniversary.

A manga adaptation with art by Itoe Takemoto has been serialized in Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine since February 2022.
The story of Ooyukiumi no Kaina takes place in an alternate world where the earth is in danger of disappearing due to the ever-expanding “sea of snow”. Humans live either on the surface at the roots of giant trees or high up in the canopy that spreads across the planet’s atmosphere.
A chance encounter between Kaina, a boy from the canopy, and Liliha, a girl from the surface, will change the world.
