Description
"In this village, death inevitably takes those who have reached 50 years of age."

By custom, all villagers who have passed the age of 50 are bound and taken to The Netherworld on the other side of the mountain. Officials clad in beast skins manage the village, "The Living World," whose people are watched over by gods. Meanwhile, the People of the Mountain remain shrouded in mystery. Anzu, who sacrificed the older of twin girls to the mountain, is torn between hope and despair.

Land, a story that reflects Yamashita Kazumi's unease for the nation of Japan.

Up to the last chapter I've read (10), the story's pace has been quite fast, though the world is unveiled rather slowly. This is an intriguing world, where we can't yet distinguish between the human actions and some kind of transcendency (magic? gods? virtual-world?). People die when they reach 50, but why? Those masked men seem to play some sort of background role in this. The society is very feudal, with few communications between the villages and the "burg". The mood is never too heavy nor too light.

I really like this manga up to now, but I'm afraid such a good start will guide nowhere, like so many manga. From my reading the last chapters, I suspect the mangaka has no long-term plan for his story. And the growing place taken by the know-it-all bishônen is worrying.

[Edit, up to chapter 12]
Unfortunately, now that the author has finished setting up this world, the lack of a story is blatant. There are 4 or 5 parallel threads, and many flashbacks. Sometimes I feel their main purpose is to buy some time until the author builds up a global direction for her story. What a pity!
