Manga published in book form, in magazine
Angelo MOKUTAN / Coauthor: UMEHARA Sei [Brazil / Japan]
Leonora, a slave in ancient Rome in charge of keeping lions, and Max, a lion who is like a younger brother to her, are hired by the wealthy Petrus, who has a habit of executing his slaves. Witnessing such abuse, Leonora, who has a strong sense of justice, is gradually engulfed by blinding anger. Through the experiences of a girl and a black-and-white paper cutout-like drawing style, the story tells of the dangers of anger and its suppression.
