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.
The story ...

Mixed Feelings
I'm all about Sci-Fi generally, and when I was specially interested in stories about people living high above the ground, this manga got into my sight.

And I got disappointed, because there is very little science in this fiction. It depicts very archaic society and low-level technology.

I was able to read it to completion - it is kinda fine. But some things were causing "unsuspendable disbelief". This controversy made me to write this review in the end.

In good science fiction, things are either have a good explanation or kept at distance from any real life experience. This manga looks like it takes all the everyday things ...
