Jury Selections

Tsukushikan no sora
(Horsetail-Citruses under the Sky)

SUDO Masumi


This collection of short manga fantasies with a new yet nostalgic flavor is the final volume in the Niwasaki (Garden) series, which has run to 120 installments in over 10 years. The setting is a lovingly, sometimes poignantly drawn miniature-garden-like world where mysterious phenomena appear—a pair of glasses that can see into the past, a talking dog in a household medicine shop, an old man who carries “the sea” with him on his travels.
