The millennial author pursues a new type of realism. The top story portrays the day-to-day of a woman living alone. Through an original style of expression that borrows from Japanese and overseas manga artists, he shows a cross-section of modern times. The book contains 14 stories including Ryujinsho (“Tale of Dragon God”), about the fate of a man who trained to become a dragon, and Akatsuka Fujio no Koro, about comic artist Fujio’s experiences during his return from Manchuria.
