Cartoonist Keiji Nakazawa was seven years old and living in Hiroshima in the early days of August 1945 when the city was destroyed by an atomic bomb dropped by the U.S.A. Starting a few months before that event, this ten-volume saga shows life in Japan after years of war and privations as seen through the eyes of seven-year-old Gen Nakaoka. Volume One begins shortly before the bomb was dropped and ends on the day of the bombing itself.
This edition features an all-new translation.
Story and art by Keiji Nakazawa.
