Woo Japanese monstersSo yeah I thought this book would be a cheesy war fantasy for boys when in fact it was about a half Japanese kid who gets stuck in the Shinto spirit world and learns all about the rift between heaven and earth from the war god I have recently been lucky enough to have conversations with my fellow bookstore employees about the monsters of Japanese folklore And they are really one of my favorite things to find in manga they are so weird and spooky and sideways and imperfect and beautiful Inzana did a great if slightly uneven ah his perspective was weird sometimes but who am I to judge job of capturing that style and making it his own with some stylistic Japanese American things in common with Jillian Tamaki His use of color was perhaps a bit over the top but perhaps that s a matter of the printingpublication choicesI really really liked this it was a solid story exciting art and made me want to learn a lot Thanks dude

This one is hard to rate Do I rate it for the illustrations and style which would easily get 5 stars or do I rate for the story which sits at about a mediocre 3 I ll go halfsies and give it 4I picked this up at the library and was about 10 pages in before I could put it down It starts with an old story of a monk and a mystical tea pot I m all for old magical Japanese myths so I was really excited about this one Besides the graphics and colors are gorgeousThen I got to the meat of the story which is mostly a Japanese American boy hearing old war stories from his grandpa in Japan It was interesting but not very engaging I pressed on and through to the boy meeting the magical tea pot and being carried off to another world Hurray More magical action Alas despite reading the entire thing in one sitting I felt the story was rather lacking Or perhaps the message was too bare for me and not buried deep enough in action and characters The main character sat and listened and learned but did not really interact with his world Perhaps it would be moving for the younger audience for which it is intendedRegardless of what I thought of the story I ll definitely be looking for of Ryan Inzana s work in the future I loved the style of the illustrations and just wish the dialogue and story matched my fascination with the drawn characters
