Final Fantasy Lost Stranger is a manga announced January 31, 2017 during Square Enix's Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary event. It is serialized in Gekkan Shōnen Gangan starting in its July 2017 issue and published in English online by Crunchyroll. The story follows a Square Enix employee who dies and is reborn into a Final Fantasy world.
Scoring a job at Square Enix, Sasaki Shogo's dream of producing a Final Fantasy game finally seems within his grasp! But after he starts, he quickly discovers that the work has nothing to do with his favorite franchise at all... Disillusioned, his enthusiasm for FF begins waning despite his sister / co-worker Yuko's attempts to lift his spirits. Their conversation is cut short, though, when a runaway truck suddenly careens toward the two of them...!
When Shogo comes to, the first thing he sees is...a Moogle?! Wait, was that a Cure spell? And chocobos...?! Hurled into a Final Fantasy world unbound to any particular installment, how will an uber-fan like Shogo survive?!
- Shogo Sasaki (佐々木正吾, Sasaki Shōgo?): The main protagonist, an employee of Square Enix who wished to work on a Final Fantasy installment. He is transported into a Final Fantasy world himself.
- Yuko Sasaki (佐々木夕子, Sasaki Yūko?): Shogo's sister and co-worker.

- Rei Hagakure (レイ・ハガクレ, Rei Hagakure?): A female axe-wielding warrior. She's not too kind with Shougo who came from another world but always listen to Sharu.
- Duston Volta (ダストン・ヴォルタ, Dasuton Voruta?): A blackmage. A moodmaker of the party who always tries his hardest to stop Shogo and Rei from fighting each other.
