KOKAMI Shoji / AZUMA Naoki

[Japan]

Near the end of the Pacific War, many young men in kamikaze special attack units lost their lives flying planes into enemy ships. This story of kamikaze pilot SASAKI Yuji defying his superior’s orders to be sure to die and surviving 9 sorties is an adaptation of a book about a man who loved to fly planes and who defended the dignity of life while resisting organizational oppression. It depicts ghastly battle scenes and emotions in manga format.
