really liked it

Reminds me of the Flying House and Super Book anime.

A great effort in converting Christ's story to manga. Using the names Yeshuah, Miryam, Yosef, etc instead of the usual english equivalent we see how the author wanted to make an account that is as correct as possible. We can still find inconsistencies but above that we see a work that is made with a heart of love, ministry and dedication > things that are essential to evangelism. I like it how the author braved into saying "do you dare to read his story... even if it may change your life forever?' since His story was never meant to entertain us or be just another story. As CS Lewis puts it, "If you are thinking of becoming a Christian, I warn you, you are embarking on something which is going to take the whole of you, brains and all."

A must have for manga collectors and Christians who understand that anime/manga is not evil nor good but is simply another neutral tool.
