The Boy and the Beast hits theaters soon on March 4, and our friends at Yen Press​ are releasing the official manga and novel versions!

Both tell fresh new takes of the action-packed story of the film, and unlike many other anime novels, the novel is actually written by director Mamoru Hosoda himself! They’ll be out on bookstore shelves nationwide February 23.
