Sakasama no Patema main image

Patema lives in an underground world and, although she is a princess, she is held back by the rules imposed by the elders of her clan. One day when she is exploring a forbidden zone she tumbles headlong into a void and out into the wide open world above the surface, a place with reversed physics where she could “fall up” into the sky and be lost forever.

Age is a student on this surface world and a part of a society whose compliant population has been brainwashed against the “sinners who fell into the sky.” When he spies Patema hanging upside down from a tree, he pulls her down to safety, struggling to keep her earthbound as she grips on to him for dear life. Together they master the art of navigating competing gravitational forces and set out to discover the secret that keeps their worlds apart.
