"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.”...
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."
Technical spec is :
138 pages approx.
