From Moyoco Anno, the artist of Hataraki-Man, Sugar Sugar Rune, Sakuran, and other works, comes The Diary of Ochibi. Drawn in gorgeous full color by way of a poichoir-like process, this volume includes episodes serialized in Asahi Shimbun’s morning edition, three newly-written stories, and the illustration collection Ochibi-san’s Tarot.
Enjoying the scent of early fall in the sunflowers on a late-summer night, listening to the “ploink” of a raindrop falling on one’s head, heading out with one’s friends to play in a typhoon ? friendships are formed out of fleeting experiences. In Kamakura’s Mametsubu-cho, Ochibi-san, Nazeni, and Pankui watch the changing of the seasons, listening for the small, extraordinary moments in ordinary, everyday life.
