It contains the story of our hero Pelu, his origins and home planet, and all the people and relationships he discovers during his time on earth. He meets beautiful damsels in distress from a singer, to a deep sea diver, to two students. That's all I'm gonna say!
The story is spread across 5 chapters. The book is 168 pages of pure Junko Mizuno goodness! The best part? The book says Vol.1 on it! Which means we Junko fans can look forward for more to come!
As it has been quite some time since the publish date I can only hope to find, one day, a second volume to rejoice over.
And yes, this was pretty much worth the wait if you're a Mizuno fan.
I can't really start a review about Mizuno's work without discussing the artwork first. There's just something about her work in that it always looks great. She puts a lot of heart and soul into her work and it shows. Of course what is so interesting about this volume and the LFGP series as a whole is that it's actually a fairly dark series when you get down to it. You essentially have this little fluffy adorable creature that's probably doomed to eternally look for his perfect mate, as his whole sense of identity and his physiological status is so drastically different from mankind. There's something horrifyingly sad in seeing Pelu get dirty and live with a wandering hobo, which belies how candy sweet Mizuno makes everything look. It really drives in how ill-suited Pelu is for the human world, yet this volume also reminds you that his home world isn't much better, as at least the human world offers him the potential chance to find a mate- even if it's just an illusion.
Plot-wise, this is a pretty sad volume. You can see where the struggle is really starting to get to Pelu and how he's actually starting to get pretty disheartened as a whole. There's also a pretty large life-changing event for him in this book. Well, two of them when you get down to it, but the one at the end of this book is probably the one that will change him the most for right now. If you're wondering, the other big event brings up interesting questions as to whether or not Pelu would really be able to truly be with a human female, given what he looked like afterwards.
Overall this was a great volume and I liked the way it was laid out. It's a big oversized volume, but this works well in highlighting Mizuno's artwork. I'd definitely recommend it for fans of her work. If you're unsure as to whether or not this is really up your alley, you might want to check out her fairy tale trilogy first. Just don't be surprised if you find yourself rushing to collect all of her books afterwards.
