After heading south to investigate the place known as Tomato Heaven,
Maru and Kiruko head back to Tokyo via a "ferry." But they are ambushed
at sea by one of the man-eating Hiruko monsters. This specific beast is
amphibious, making him extremely deadly as he can easily take cover in
the sea. Meanwhile in the school, Tokio, with the help of his classmate
Kuku, uncovers a frightening secret. Maybe life is not what it seems at
all. Maybe those who are inside the walls are not in heaven. And maybe
the walls are there to keep them all inside!
Born in Fukui, Japan in 1977, Masakazu Ishiguro is an award-winning comic artist who made his debut in 2000 with the Afternoon Magazine Four Seasons Award winning short "HERO". While Ishiguro initially cut his teeth within the science-fiction realm he is possibly best known for his comedies; particularly the Japan Media Arts Award winning And Yet the Town Moves (Shonen Gahosha). Whimsical, stylish and often surreal, Ishiguro's works are often put into their own SF genre (slightly fantastical).
Selected as the Best Manga of 2018 by the Kono Manga ga Sugoi Committee.
