Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—An unnamed warrior in a mask awakens. Immediately, a female general who fights to protect her people detains this potential savior. The mask is in itself an entity that speaks to and bestows great power upon its bearer, and while it prevents the man from speaking, we come to understand him through his actions. From the start, Kamen draws us in with its mysteries. Who is this man? What is nen? How will seemingly disparate threads come together? The author refrains from answering for now, yet avoids frustrating readers by dispersing these questions throughout the immediate plot. At times there is unnecessary narration, and speed lines can distort some images, however this doujinshi (indie manga) has a natural flow that sweeps us over these distractions. Instead of emphasizing any fantasy elements, the author draws in a stark, reserved style befitting the historical qualities of this alternate Japan. Nations battle, politicians plot, and individuals have their own concerns, all of which makes this an exciting, and intriguing series.—Rachel Forbes, Oakville Public Library, Ontario, Canada
