Another delightful volume of “Saturn Apartments”, the coming of age manga series continues to feature Mitsu as he gains more experience as a window washer.

But this time around, he learns about the father he never knew much about. From how his father impacted others lives, how his father made others happy but also how his father risked his life to save someone.

These are all new stories that he never knew about his father and to know his father was a happy and cool individual and to be compared to his father makes him happy.

While one can describe the manga as a slice of life manga set in the future, about a young man’s job as an outer space window washer, it’s more about his life as a young adult and the transition from being a student and now earning money in a risky job.

But through his job, he learns about the various classes in the apartment complex but also meeting people who eventually befriend Mitsu, because of his naivety of the different classes but he is someone wanting to help people and listen to them.

But the more he works in the job and meets people of different status, he meets those who have worked with his father and starts to learn how his father made an impact on other people’s lives as well.

The artwork by Hisae Kwaoka is rather unique as characters are drawn with a different style than any manga you will read. It’s hard to describe, but it’s a unique style that Hisae Iwaoka is known for and it’s great to have something different art-wise than other mangaka out there. She really distinguishes herself from other artists. Her writing so far for vol. 2 is quite entertaining and is a coming-of age, slice-of-life type of manga series and I can’t wait for vol. 3!

I really enjoyed the illustration and story of this graphic novel. I have pre-ordered volume three and I highly anticipate its arrival. The utopia/dystopia story line makes this a solid choice for me and an easy recommendation to others.
