Part of the reason I wrote this is out of sympathy to the author, because another review on this page gave the book only 1 star, which is unreasonably low given its quality. The reviewer dismisses the character (and by proxy the creator) as a pathetic loser. Clearly, 1) this person has no experience spending an entire year in a foreign culture with almost no ties to people from his own, 2) the author is playing up the sense of isolation for artistic reasons, which seem lost on him, and 3) he claims to be a "comic book artist himself", yet I find it difficult to believe any serious artist would dispute the talent behind this effort, even if they can't relate to the subject matter personally.
My only complaint is that while part II is a lot longer than 1, it still flies by very quickly. I'm hooked and will keep buying them separately, but you might want to wait until he finishes the first four and compiles them into one larger volume. In the meantime, check out his website at larsmartinson.com , which has lots of good free comics (which are what got me interested in the Tonoharu series to start with).
I'm a comic book creator. I know firsthand the unbelievable strain and effort and skill and discipline it takes to complete a comic book of any length. And to see a book-length work devoted to a character who is in an extraordinary place and then does nothing and says nothing and learns nothing, doesn't even form any kind of basic opinion about his lot is to stare into the face of madness.
This book isn't bad. It carries the substantive weight of a shrew's sneeze. It isn't really much of anything.
