Description
Chakuro is the 14-year-old archivist of the Mud Whale, a nigh-utopian island that floats across the surface of an endless sea of sand. Nine in ten of the inhabitants of the Mud Whale have been blessed and cursed with the ability to use thymia, special powers that doom them to an early death.

Chakuro and his friends have stumbled across other islands, but they have never met, seen, or even heard of a human who wasn't from their own. One day, Chakuro visits an island as large as the Mud Whale and meets a girl who will change his destiny.

Note: Nominated for the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2017.

The narrative is very setting and lore heavy for a female publication. I have more questions then opinions at this point but i liked what i read in the first volume. The protagonist needs to develop more complexity though.
The later volumes though didn´t manage to build on this promising foundation and i had to stop. It´s ultimately impossible to care about a story if the characters within can´t seem to either.
