Manga published in book form, in magazine

Reason for Award

An at first glance average, on deeper reading far from average drama. Characters who seem normal, but in fact are truly abnormal.A final destination to this thrilling human drama that seems at once transparent,and totally obscure,only adds to the mystery. At very least,kudos to the most solid story telling in recent years.
