Memories of Emanon (1 Volume/9 Chapters)

Its hard to find the words that accurately express just how wonderfully magnificent Memories of Emanon actually is. The story in its entirety was astoundingly articulate, ravishingly studious, and enigmatically captivating. Kenji Tsuruta conveys pure artistic endearment in brilliant fashion throughout this fabulous publication.

What would you do if you had a three billion year old memory? Would you melancholically reminiscence over past experiences, would you nostalgically ponder the meaning of life, or would you stand idle by and simply observe as time passes? I was fascinated with this wondrous tale that encompasses beauty in the truest sense of the word.

After I had read Omoide Emanon's description, I was positive that it would be an experience out of the ordinary. Having finished it, it left me with a feeling hard to describe, the closest one being pure awe.

Imagine having a three billion old memory that encompasses everything that has happened, even that of the origination of life itself. Is it possible to cope with it?

Omoide Emanon is a heartwarming and fascinating tale of a 17 year-old girl who possesses an ancient memory that dates up to the creation of life.

The approach on the narrative is utterly fascinating and well done; it is narrated in a span of a couple of hours, then makes a jump to the future. The story is established in 1967, which starts off by slowly building read more

How would it feel to have 3 billion years of memory? My brain can’t even begin to comprehend something so vast. And yet, this is exactly what this manga is about.

Honestly, it's hard for me to find the right words to describe this manga. I don't want to simply recommend a manga because it's good. I want to share an experience. I won’t hesitate to say that this, at least for me, was a masterpiece. Of course, it’s not perfect, but after reading tons of mangas, Omoide Emanon was like a pearl in the sea of clichéd and boring stories.

First of all, let me read more
