Overview

Like the waters of the Minanogawa river, that flows by the crest of the Tsukubane mountain, is accumulated and finishes in an abyss, my secret love has also become a void of deep melancholy. Emperor Yozei (898-949). Very clever, very subtle- even when her words are very direct. [b]Kan Takahama[/b] tackles a wide variety of delicate subjects in this collection of short stories including a lovers' pact, bar room chat, mermaids and child pornography. She does so with a robust yet delicate grace in her artwork that moves along with the strong scripts to enhance and entrance the reader. Probably the most talented manga-ka to have recently emerged from Japan, her art and storytelling will surprise when least expected.
