Jury Selections

Sabishii no wa anta dake janai
(You're Not the Only Lonely One)

YOSHIMOTO Koji

[Japan]

The author, who studied welfare in college, depicts the world of the hearing-impaired, employing the sound effects and onomatopoeia that are a manga staple to describe that world as well as to tell a story. This is not only a documentary manga that touches on an incident that scandalized Japan, but also a mystery manga—a work that encourages readers to think along with it.
