You Must Read "Sunny" As Soon As Possible

I've just finish "Sunny volume 3" by Taiyo Matsumoto, which made my heart ache.

In the entry "Japanese Manga Classics (3): Taiyo Matsumoto "Ping Pong"," I wrote about one of my favorite manga author, Taiyo Matsumoto. "Sunny" is his latest work and I think that it is his best work.

His graphics are artistic and fantastic, and I've been fascinated his graphics. Although manga consists of graphics, story, and dialogue, his graphics are so amazing that he gave too much importance to graphics in some of his work. And his works were sometimes so avant-garde that it was difficult to understand them. I, myself, love these works, but I don't recommend them to somebody else.

But "Sunny" is quite orthodox, and graphics, story, and dialog were integrated into an impressive manga, which must touch everyone's heart.

I was really happy to find English version of "Sunny," and I strongly recommend reading it as soon as possible.


  1. Really enjoyed Tekkonkinkreet, so am really looking forward to reading Sunny. I hope the English presentation of the covers remains the same as the Japanese editions!.

  2. Thank you for your comment. Sunny is a masterpiece!
