"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."
