Description: Ian, a young man with a fractured family history, travels from Australia to England to America in the hope of realizing his dreams and reuniting with his beloved sister. His story unfolds backwards through the framing narrative of Jim, a reporter driven to capture Ian’s experiences in a novel: not simple. A story within a story, a book within a book, a tale about the search for family, for an emotional home.

Unfortunatly the only chapters available are direct scans from the English publication which are not allowed on Batoto.

  If you cruise the nets, you may find a few people saying that the manga is boring and that the art sucks. I'm gonna give it to ya straight, nets: That's wrong, and you're missing out. Just, go out there and buy it. It's lovely.

  It's done in that uniquely Natsume Ono style (Google it to see, folks), but almost...a chibi version? It's perfect for the story. AND THE STORY. It's not graphic, no sex or cursing or drugs are shown, but they are...er, mentioned. It's a mature story. Also, once you finish the book and you think back on things, you'll realize one thing after another, and it'll bring you to tears. It hits you, I promise.

A very unique manga. One of my favorites.
