Children of the Sea: Volume 1 by Daisuke Igarashi

Children of the Sea: Volume 1 by Daisuke Igarashi

Translation by JN Productions

Viz Media, San Fransisco, 2009

Borrowed from the library.

The first manga I have managed to get through!  For some reason my brain has a hard time wrapping around the right to left format.

Ruka is having a hard time.  Shuttling between her parents is difficult, she is having trouble at school and feels out of place everywhere.  She dreams of a ghost she had seen in the aquarium where her father works, a ghost that turns into light.  Then she meets two brothers,  Umi and Sora.  While the adults around these children struggle with a mystery of disappearing fish, Ruka, Umi and Sora discover a connection and begin to find out things about their past and about their future.

What drew me in was the sea, what kept me there was Igarashi’s stunning artwork.  The library only has volume 1, I am going to have to fine or buy volume 2.
