[Japan]

The author’s previous work I Care Because You Do clearly reflects his own past experiences, and he created this SF manga after the Great East Japan Earthquake. It is set in a small village on a small island wrapped in tranquility and night, and raises questions about economic growth, energy, urban and rural areas, depopulation, the flaws of majority voting and the nature of gentleness.
