In honor of the 100th birthday of Osamu Dazai, Usamaru Furuya retells Dazai's most important work, No Longer Human, in modern-day Tokyo, where modern vices can bring ruin to the self-loathing.
Yozo Oba is a young man originally from a well-off family from Japan's far north and a troubled soul incapable of revealing his true self to others. A weak constitution and the lingering trauma from some abuse administered by a relative has forced him to uphold a facade of hollow jocularity since high school.
Story and art by Usamaru Furuya.
