    I LOVE MATSUMOTO! I can never get enough! The art in this is of the same cleaned up and detailed style that was used for his previously released Gogo Monster and the storytelling style was really similar. The cast here is much larger however, while again using the sort of eccentric children characters that Matsumoto is known for as the focal characters which the story moves around.
    While I really enjoyed a lot of the emotional moments within this story, by it’s close it was seeming to be just beginning. This is the first book of a series it appears, but how many more or how long until a next book is unclear. I hope that this book does well enough to warrant translating more of this story into English.
