MARUO Suehiro

[Japan]

This is a Romanesque revenge story with a mixture of horror and fantasy about the twins Tomino and Catan, exposed to a harsh life after their mother abandoned them and they were sold to a circus in the imperial capital. Set in Tokyo of the late Taisho Era, the hell-like journey of the twins burdened with tragic destiny unfolds. This is the first long serialization by the internationally popular author that has been translated and sold abroad.
