Review: Solanin by Asano Inio

Image
  I don't use the word "heartache" lightly. It could be a case of my finding this manga at precisely the correct time for it to have the maximum impact on me, but it actually hurt to read and at the same time, I couldn't put it down. My heart ached. This is not an emotion I feel very often. It's a simple story; I would argue that it is a brutally simple story. But in telling it, Asano reveals that he is a human being who has lived, which is art in its purest form. Speaking of the visuals, Asano's style works very well with this material. There is a humor and a cartoonish exaggeration there, but at the same time the faces are surprisingly lifelike. I suspect he is heavily referencing photos of actual people. He also mixes in real photography. He's not the only mangaka I've seen play with this, but the effect here is intentionally jarring. It adds a lot to the feel of a scene. Despite my glowing review, I don't know if other people will get out of th

Review: Tokyo These Days by Taiyo Matusmoto [Vol 1]

Image
  Tokyo These Days has found me at the right place and the right time to be particularly hard-hitting. It follows Shiozawa, a manga editor who has recently retired following a failed magazine launch. Shiozawa struggles with his newfound retirement. At first, he tries to distance himself from manga and the industry, but his creativity and love for the art are not gone and he is slowly overcome by the desire to start a new project.  This is not a plot-heavy manga. It's slow, deliberate, and peaceful. Achingly so. Matsumoto captures the feeling of a creative person who has labored unseen and largely unrecognized for decades. Shiozawa is good at his job. The art he loves to make is no longer the art that sells, and a pure love of manga is no longer enough to keep him going. Once separate from the industry grind, though, Shiozawa's passion is rekindled. I look forward to seeing where it goes from here. Matsumoto captures the feeling of aging in a creative space in a way that I haven
