At the same time, a massive underground realm called “Asylym” was discovered at the South Pole as the syndrome’s origin. Weird creatures, unlike any on the surface, dwell there with previously unknown natural resources. People go to the Asylum to find a cure for the Randolph syndrome and also to get rich plundering the creatures’ genetic data and underground resources
The manga centers on Sergiu Sol, a boy with a special resistance to the disease, and Antarctica’s jack-of-all-trades Hildegard Olympiada Yamada, who decide to take on the challenge of heading to the Asylum, when all others before them have never returned.
The story concepts are drafted by writers Norimitsu Kaihō and Makoto Fukami. Artist Etorouji Shiono launched the Deep Insanity manga in the February 2020 issue of Square Enix’s Monthly Big Gangan magazine. The manga now goes by the full title Deep Insanity: Nirvana.
