A small group of people, descended from a particular bloodline, have the ability to negate a sphere of reality and neatly remove it from existence. Continuous use of this power alters the user's appearance until they come to resemble a none-too-pretty alien.

But what does this have to do with an out-of-the-way town in Japan, a group of university students from Tokyo, and a series of mysterious disappearances and deaths?

As in Parasyte, Hitoshi is being loyal to his simplistic, and unadorned art style, which he usually supplements with profound, and riveting story. Depiction of monsters is again enriched in comparison with other characters - this is probably the most noticeable signature move of Hitoshi. Tanabata no Kuni is similar to Parasyte in many traits - maybe a bit too many. That's a fact I cannot overlook, and is definitely disreputable in terms of originality. However, Hitoshi being a master of story-line manages to get away with it, and serves another mind-boggling SF work, shrouded in mystery, and deviousness. Highly recommendable, especially to those who read more
