NEO BORDER

HIJIKATA Yuuhou / TANAKA Akio

[Japan]

Sequel to the manga BORDER, which offered an alternative value system for bubble-era Japan. Protagonist HACHISUKA suddenly appears in Heiankyo, the capital, during the turbulent last days of the Heian era, a historical turning point. In his pursuit of humanity's holy grail of freedom, HACHISUKA has transcended time and space. What message does Heiankyo hold for today's Japan as it faces a similar crisis?
