4th Manga Division Excellence Award


Manga published in book form, in magazine (Shueisha Inc. Marguerite Comic)

Kira [Japan]

Reason for Award

“Massuguni-ikou (Let’s Go Straight)”, this title is enticing. There are two worlds drawn in this work. It is drawn from the point of view of a dog’s master and from the point of view of the dog. The two coexist but they do not work in collusion. The story progresses smoothly without any violently dramatic scenes. However, after reading this Manga, a quiet but burning emotion will be left deep in your chest. The true feeling of going straight down the road will begin to gush forth.
