URINO Kiko’s Heart Beat

Manga published in book form, in magazine

URINO Kiko [Japan]


Born of the interaction between people, this work skillfully expresses the words that reso- nate in the heart at unexpected moments, or at times of comfort. All four stories link music to the subtleness the heart emits from the midst of human relationships. This work delicately expresses the thoughts of so many that live the modern life, and what they wish to convey, us- ing richly textured and ne-lined facial expressions and sincere sentiments of com- munication.
