23rd Manga Division Jury Selections
Atezuppo (Random Guess)
A short story collection with a strange part-cat/part-human protagonist who repeatedly learns and grows while interacting with strange creatures and events that are unevenly distributed in towns. Contrary to the simply drawn characters, the profound brushstrokes of the townscape reveal a different world that sometimes has scenery similar to reality. Combined with repeated conceptual questions, it leaves the reader with unique and intense impressions.
