it was amazing

Can't quite recall how I stumbled across this, if memory serves I suspect it was picked up in Gosh comics on one of my trips to London. This is the kind of manga work that I really just thoroughly enjoy.

Saturn Apartments is a space station structure, which hangs above the Earth, the planet abandoned to be a nature reserve. The poorest stay on the inside, the richest on the outside, with great windows so they can see down to the planet below. The lead character finishes school, and following in his father's footsteps he becomes a window cleaner. But not just any ordinary window cleaner, he gets suited up and goes outside, cleans the great windows for the rich.

The first book establishes the characters, the mystery of the boy's father, and the relationships/conflicts with the other window cleaners, while introducing the rich people who they work for. Great fun.
