Biographical comics on touchy subject as DC/Vertigo´s Unknown Soldier do exist but japan usually stays away from subjects that controversial. This manga did not and we are better off for it.
Fukaya is a great and gritty artist and this is one of his best looking works but the narrative is of course the star.
It is very well researched, gripping and most importantly fresh and i wish that more such tales would be published in japan. 1F - Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant Work Log and Sousou - 2011.3.11 Bokou ga Itaianchisho ni Natta Hi about Fukushima are comparable and still untranslated tales.
All deserve to one day leave japan as such topics deserves everyone’s attention.
