Damn, how can a manga fly under MAL's radar for 6 years, then snatch a Tezuka Grand Prix out of nowhere ? Interested in reading that but can't find any translation of it.

It always saddens me that these award winners are always nowhere to be found in English, or any other language for that matter.

I hope the Grand Prize winner will be licensed or picked up by some scanlator groups. It looks interesting.
