Tanpenshu Volume 1 Manga Paperback – February 6, 2007
by Hiroki Endo (Author, Artist)
Heart wrenching and complex, Tanpenshu Volume 1 is the first of two collections of powerful, shorter works by manga master Hiroki Endo (creator of the critically-acclaimed, long-running Eden manga series). The three stories in this first volume are mature explorations of humanity's constant, fumbling attempts to find hope and meaning in a confusing, violent world. A disfigured misfit befriends a doomed yakuza outcast, a group a school kids fail to see the anger that's about to boil over from one of their own and members of an experimental theatre troupe embark on a project that will test both their friendships and the group's grasp on reality.
