They even put a little note on the very first page saying it was mirrored with the complete consent of the author. Worrying that people won't buy your book because it's published in the original format is such a pedantic thing to even think about, especially for a niche book such as this one.
I only give this release two stars because of the amazing printing and binding quality of the book. Otherwise, I would have given it one star simply because of the fact that they mirrored it. Mirroring manga is such a complete waste of time and resources nowadays.
Way to screw up what could have been a perfect release for this wonderful manga, Ponent Mon.
He has no idea how it happened or how to return to his current life. All he can do is try to live in his own past. Then he realizes exactly when he is, and the heartbreaking event that will soon follow. Hiroshi is increasingly frantic as he realizes what's coming for his family. Can he change it? I was unprepared for the emotional wallop of this story. Hiroshi's desperation, the family dynamics, the possibility of being trapped in the past forever... yikes! Seriously good, both the writing and the art.
