21st Manga Division Jury Selections
HAND CLAP STORY
Manga published in book form, in magazine
USOGAWA Masakazu [Japan]
In addition to the three self-published works announced to date, namely Aru (You have), Saikoro Motors (Dice motors), and Kani Dake ga Shinda (Only the crab is dead), the series has added the new works of Hakushu no Mo- nogatari (Hand clap story) and Dekigoto (An event). By using methods that make the reader aware of where they should direct their atten- tion, these works challenge with expressions that go beyond what a reader may expect to come across.
