Warera Contactee

MORITA Rui

Manga published in book form, in magazine [Japan]

One night low-key office clerk Kanae recon- nects with her old elementary school classmate Kazuki who shows her a rocket engine com- bustion experiment he is working on. Sensing it could be profitable, Kanae aims to launch the rocket together with Kazuki who had been working on it alone in a run-down factory. The two are drawn with sharp, distorted lines and a sense of speed as they plunge ahead with their wild scheme.
