Henshin no Nyu-su (The News of Transformation)
MIYAZAKI Natsujikei [Japan]
A collection of short stories which feature the mystery of human beings with a seemingly surreal yet pure literature-like style. MIYAZAKI’s attempt at a new manga representation through his illustration and presentation style is gaining attention and he is regarded as one of the leading artists of 2010s by critics. Readers are fascinated by his detailed depiction of sensitive feelings and the way in which each story dramatically develops into fantasy by its end.
