Time and again, A You finds himself chasing a mysterious rabbit through his dreams. But before he can reach out and grab it…his mother is shaking him awake for another day of work. A You’s not exactly thrilled with his job at the factory, so when a persistent streak of bad luck leaves him unemployed, it seems like a great opportunity to start over. The trouble is, A You doesn’t have anything to move on to. With no goals or aspirations, A You roams the city searching for direction. Deep in thought on one of his strolls, A You suddenly rouses himself only to discover he’s lost in the woods. He catches sight of a rabbit, and in desperation follows it through the forest. But this scene seems familiar... Is it a dream? Or could there truly be an ideal world within the darkness?

An Ideal World is a delightful little manga. It centers around Ayou, an apathetic, cynical, and overall unhappy boy--I mean, "young man"--and his fantastical quest for self-discovery. His quest may be literally out of this world, with clear allusions to Alice in Wonderland, but the issues at hand are down to earth and very relatable in the real world. Ayou's inquiries and the advice he receives from his friends and others pierce the very heart of the long-standing philosophical question on the meaning of life, and Ayou's journey eventually plays a role in finding a deep understanding of human existence.

Yeah, heavy stuff. But actually, it's read more
