Manga published in book form, in magazine
OKAZAKI Kyoko [Japan]
Reason for Award
This work gives an impression that this is a summarization of activities of a group of artists who displayed striking expressions in the girls’ comics at the time of the author’s debut, particularly in the field of ladies comics. This work gradually makes readers shudder by thoroughly describing the values shared only by those who live this age and the social reasons that destined the main character’s life. This strong power, as well as high popularity, qualifies this work as a prizewinner.
