If you like “Naoki Urasawa‘s” worldviews such as “21st Century Boys” and “MONSTER”, then you would probably love this manga as well. The author is “Ao Akato(朱戸アオ)”, an author who has serialized much manga in the past, specializing in medical suspense such as “In Hand”.
Synopsis of the manga.
The theme of this manga is the fast-growing disparity in the world. Poverty. Racism. Environmental destruction. Resources shortage. Education. ……. As inequality grows in all aspects, wealthy large corporations like GAFA become targets of terrorism. In the manga, the spray-painted scrawl on the billboards of major corporations in the city signifies a terrorist threat.
In addition, as I mentioned at the beginning of this article, there is a new organization that looks as if the evil organization “Tomodachi” has resurfaced. What is the purpose of this organization? What does this symbol mean? At this stage, there is no end to the mystery.
You may have already seen on NETFLIX, the Korean drama “Squid Game” is also a big hit around the world. It has also become a big topic here in Japan. Squid Game is also about the disparity that exists in the world. It may be that the theme of inequality is a worldwide trend that is being accepted by many people because it coincides with their situation.
Since only one volume of the comic has been released yet, this is one of the comics that I am very much looking forward to seeing how the story will develop.
