Description
The straightlaced Tatsumi has accepted a new job as a teacher on a small island around the Ogasawara Archipelago named "Aoshima," where he encounters unfathomable phenomena that defy all logic. This warm fantasy tale is evocative of nature, in all its mystery and wonder. But is this enchanting isle of blue welcoming him, or...?

The island calls out to you, ushering you into a realm on the flipside of the senses. Come enjoy a moment's little miracle in a place where common sense holds little sway!

It's rather difficult to describe just what makes Hisakata no Oto such a fantastic read, but if you're someone who has it in him/herself to appreciate "seinen" in the true spirit of the word: as a demographic that appeals to the hearts and minds of adult readers through subtlety, depth and quiet musings on the way we humans connect to the world around us - rather than in its colloquial meaning of "manga with a lot of nudity, violence and tragedy" - then I wholeheartedly recommend this little series.

A unique amalgamation of magical realism, environmentalism and slice-of-life, with a realistic-but-endearing cast of characters and a lovely, uncommon art style to complement it, Hisakata no Oto is a perfect treat for a rainy afternoon.
