In Saturn’s Apartment, humans are forced to leave Earth for preservation purpose and they inhabit a man-made foundation of a ring, which circles Earth. However, this utopia has flaws, which separates the social status among each individual. Basically, the bigger your status is so the higher the place you live in. Mitsu is a son of a former window washer, who deals with the death of his father when he was washing the window of the ring-complex. His father’s death leaves Mitsu with him with obstacles and no choice but to continue his occupation.

The theme that is being displayed shows is human impact on the environment, because if humans weren’t ruthless about the environment, maybe the earth wouldn’t need to be preserve and incidents like Mitsu’s father wouldn’t have occur.

Hisae Iwaoka has foretold the future possibilities for earth, through an interesting and heart-breaking manga. It’s truly a form of art, and has to be praise with 4 stars. And it leaves readers wondering, what would happen, if we have to go this far to save earth?
