Karl Assa - Orbital Comics London - Staff Picks - 27/07/2017

"Here is a hilarious slice of life manga about a young man coming to terms with life having moved to the city."

“There is no other manga like this......not now .... or ever.”...

Let me get my head around what I am gonna write here.
Because this is important to me it might take a little time.

In the meantime here is a quote from Mitsuhiro Asakawa,
former editor of GARO -

"For me Yoshio Hori,
the protagonist of these stories, was the most empathic character in manga when I was in my late-teen to early 20’s.

Yoshio lives a hand to mouth existence. No girlfriend, no money, no job.

He doesn’t have an aim of life and doesn’t know what to do with his life. At that time I was just like him, in a way.

I think that English readers will feel the same way as I feel, that there is no other manga like this,
not now or ever."
