15th Manga Division Jury Selections
The Garden of Wild Orchids Called Mizu-tonbo
Manga published in book form, in magazine [Japan]
This short-form manga is an edited version of the Garden Arrangement strip currently being serialized in “Monthly Comic Beam”. Linked to the content of her previous work, Garden Guide, the same characters and settings are scattered everywhere throughout this one. Encounters with mysterious beings such as the old man who brings the sea, the dog’s pharmacy and visitors from across the galaxy unfold in a comical fashion. This gem of a fantasy work carefully and gently depicts precious moments.
