Description
The heroine, Ruka, who was banned from taking part in the activities of her club during the summer vacation, meets a strange boy named Umi. She is fascinated by Umi, who she sees swimming freely in an aquarium, and finds out that he, along with Sora, was raised by a dugong. At that time a meteorite fell into the sea and all the fish disappeared from the world. The mystery of the sea deepens and the story spreads to encompass the life of the earth.

Another of Igarashi's stunning works.

Igarashi Daisuke is, if nothing else, an absolutely brilliant artist. His work is fluid, detailed, and most importantly very evocative. He always seems to be able to create the perfect environment for his stories, and Kaijuu no Kodomo is no exception to this rule.

This is not a work for the impatient. It's slow to develop and very relaxed in its pacing, but the reward brought by the characters, and their changing world is more than worth the time you spend to delve yourself in. This is a piece that's not only worth reading, but actually worth buying, and I encourage everyone with the ability to pick up a copy when Viz releases the first volume in July.
