Floating on an endless sea of sand, an isolated civilization resides on an island-like vessel known as the Mud Whale. The lives of many of its citizens are short, due to a power they wield called "thymia", and they have very little knowledge of the lands beyond their desert home. Young archivist Chakuro wants to acquire as much knowledge as he can in his short lifetime to pass on to future generations, and an opportunity for him to learn more arises when a lone girl is discovered living alone on a similar vessel. She is the first human being the people of the Mud Whale have ever seen, and she possesses a great deal of information that they do not- about the outside world and even the secrets of the Mud Whale itself. With her arrival, everything in their world begins to change.
This manga tells the story of an unchartet and alien world with a very unique setting and style. We follow a small society on top of an island drifting in the endless sand-ocean that makes up their world. The most interesting aspect here is the world itself. Similar to the likes of attack on titan, diescovering the many mysteries of the world is the main appeal of the story. The author puts a lot of emphesis on the worldbuilding to make the people on the island feel alive, but sometimes dialogues tend to feel a bit cramped with all of those foreign terms. The characters themselfs are decent, they are likeable but not very fleshed out. All in all I can say that if you are interested in worldbuilding or just love seeing alien worlds then this is the manga for you
