TSUYUKI Yuruco [Japan]
This manga is a collection of short stories about six pairs of men and their encounters. It depicts the relationships between various men with different professions and ages that could be described as both love and friendship. Sto- ries of the kind of universal affection that springs up between two people, which comes before relationships between people of the same or different genders, are drawn in great detail with rich emotional depictions. This work truly over- ows with heartwarming human love.
