Synopsis

Far in the future, humankind has evacuated the Earth in order to preserve it. Humans now reside in a gigantic structure that forms a ring around the Earth, thirty-five kilometers up in the sky. The society of the ring is highly stratified: the higher the floor, the greater the status. Mitsu, the lowly son of a window washer, has just graduated junior high. When his father disappears and is assumed dead, Mitsu must take on his father's occupation. As he struggles with the transition to working life, Mitsu's job treats him to an outsider's view into the various living-room dioramas of the Saturn Apartments.

Dosei Mansion (a.k.a Saturn Apartments) is on the surface just another slice of life with a wacky twist; This time they're in a giant ring surrounding the Earth (the Ring System) because the Earth was turned into a nature preserve. Just on that it doesn't seem like much to follow the every day life of a window cleaner didn't seem all to exciting. That was my attitude going in, and after finishing the manga, I can say that I was totally wrong. Beneath the slice of life guise that Saturn Apartments holds in a beautiful story that all of its readers can relate to.

Preliminary
Wanting to take up his fathers career and curious about the circumstances surrounding his disappearance, Mitsu takes up a job cleaning the windows of the huge ring like structure orbiting the earth which all humanity now inhabits due to the Earth having been turned into a nature reserve. Mitsu soon finds that his new job enables him to take on an outsiders view on the strange world of Saturn Apartments.
Whilst many parts of the story can’t be argued to be groundbreaking, the way in which Saturn Apartments society is divided holds the story together and makes each new client more interesting. Rather than focusing on read more
