The Prison City, housing over five hundred thousand people, is inescapable. Constantly surveilled by thousands of robot guards, the inhabitants have little chance of jailbreak. Chloe, a seven-year-old girl, has lived in this dreary city her whole life. Abandoned by her parents, she passes her days with her baby brother, Rock. Since the streets are sprawling with dangerous criminals, she has never left the house and finds her purpose in life by taking care of her brother.

One night, after realizing that her neighbors are attempting to escape, Chloe secretly pursues them while carrying Rock. However, when things go south during their escape, she becomes separated from her brother. Faced with harsh reality, she reluctantly escapes without him, holding onto the hope that he will survive until the day she can return. Eleven years later, upon polishing her combat abilities, Chloe returns to the Prison City with fierce determination to search for the brother she promised to protect long ago.

Soloist in a Cage follows the adventure of a girl named Chloe in a heavily guarded and dangerous dystopian world.

I would like to start by saying that the way this manga has been drawn, it feels more like reading a comic book than your average manga. Each and every single page is well drawn. I believe the work has been done digitally because I have a hard time believing such magnificent work can be drawn on paper, while the author of the series has health issues.

I started reading this manga because it had a very interesting concept, a prison city was something I had never read at that time, so I didn't know what to expect from this story. After reading a few chapters, I quickly fell in love with the art style, the scenes in which Chloe is killing her opponents are beautiful, you really can get the feeling that she's dancing, and her expressions showing some sort of guiltiness but at the same time knowing that if she doesn't attack back she won't be able to meet with her brother once again, or that she won't be able read more

What happens when you wish to tell a story about family and love set in a grimdark fascist world filled with despicable human beings? You get Soloist in a Cage.

While the idea of escaping a prison is not new in literary fiction it has been a while since I've read something of such high quality.

If you're looking for a manga with atypical but gorgeous character designs, beautiful dark ambience and action that feels more like a fluent dance then look no further.

Ori No Naka No Soloist (Soloist In A Cage) is another endearing manga waiting to be read by readers. This manga is so cool when comes to its story, characters and most importantly, its art.

COMMENTS from Readers on Manga Plus- an Official reading website/app by Shueisha: from the comments on this manga's first chapter, readers adored it! Especially the art and story were most loved. It seems the emotions portrayed were able to reach the readers. A reader commented that they would 'read it again and again coz it is so beautiful' . Another tried to re-read the current chapters again and again before going read more
