I just wanted to comment on this story. It is based on the author's real life experiences at Gen's age, living in Hiroshima! This is a must read. We must not forget the tragedy of war. The human suffering and the innocent lives that paid for world peace.
I am so thankful to the author for his courage to write this story. All who read it can benefit from its lessons.
Please take the time to read this.

A brutally honest look into the lives of ordinary people at the end of WW2, in possibly the most damaged Japanese city of the war (together with Nagasaki). Brilliantly plotted and fast paced. I feel everyone should read this book at least once in their lives.
Unfortunately, volume 1 seems to be out of print - but secondhand copies are available for sale.
Note: The anime adaptation left out maybe 80% of the most "politically incorrect" scenes.
