Though overall I think it is a very touching book and has inspired me to read more manga pieces.

I felt like holding an original hand written book, dunno how to put it but all the stuff in it felt like so organic and human…Kojima…Tezuka…Tatsumi…Nakazawa…

It’s certainly not a perfect comic, and yet no comic has ever made a stronger impression upon me as a reader. This might be because I have read the subsequent volumes–2 and 3 are my personal favorites, perhaps because Gen becomes a symbol of hope in the midst of total destruction. I’d give the next couple of volumes a shot, if you get a chance.
