it was amazing
bookshelves: comics, manga

Okay, finally, a pretty decently drawn grownup female character in an Urasawa book. (I love Nina in 'Monster' but she's in the wounded-but-resilient teenager mode, even if technically a grownup by the end.) I wish there was more of her (and more than one of her) but that solves my main irritation with reading Urasawa's stuff.

Meanwhile, the main protagonist is winning me over (Urasawa has a thing with prickly males who endear you because of how they get along with kids), and the plot is really picking up. The narrative logic is more dream-horror logic than things-that-make-sense logic, but considering the quality of the art and the level of the storytelling skills, he pulls it off.
