Some manga-fans may know Mohiro Kitoh as the creator of 'Bokurano', an manga-series that puts a spin to the Super Robot-genre so utterly dark and nihilistic that it makes Evangelion (the godfather of genre-deconstructions in the anime-medium) look pleasant.

Many of Kitoh's works are similarly disturbing and depressing; but Zansho is an exception. It's by no means lighthearted; but the 7 stories featured in this collection combine insightful obervations on themes like regret and loss with a more bittersweet outlook on life and people as opposed to the oppressing nihilsm that normally permeates his work.

I'll reffrain from extensively explaining each of the stories in read more
