Following the events of her night aboard the ferry, Emanon—the enigmatic girl with a three-billion-year-old memory—continues on her journey, wandering aimlessly through life with no clear destination in mind. Since the beginning of time, she has followed the same cycle: she departs from home and travels the world as a teenager while pondering her mysterious existence, eventually meeting a man and giving birth to a girl who will inherit her memories and very being.

Sasurai Emanon, told from the perspective of Emanon herself, chronicles the events between 1967 and 1980, showing how her life had come full circle from her evening aboard the ferry to her reunion with the man at the train station.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Sasurai Emanon is based on Shinji Kajio's novel of the same title, which was first released in 1992.

The series was published in English as Emanon: Emanon Wanderer by Dark Horse from August 14, 2019 to September 19, 2023, and in Spanish by Ponent Mon.

The journey of Emanon is quite a unique one.
It was a journey of life, or rather, the journey of the history of life.

As you go along on Emanon's journey with her, it will draw you in her experiences, her life on the move, and her unique circumstances.

From every generation she is born into, her fate has already been sealed. When she's old enough to survive on her own, she would leave her family, travel the world, and eventually when she gives birth to her own daughter, her memories will be wiped clean and she will become a blank state, transferring all her experiences and memories ...

The only reason why this manga doesn't have a much higher rating is due to the fact that it has never been properly developed by the author. The story of Sasurai Emanon's project was fragmented across time and failed to be taken seriously.

Nevertheless the premise is fascinating and the art is simply the greatest Manga genre has to offer. This is a manga for mature people with a truly inspiring concept. For those who know the movie "Man of Earth" it is hard to not see the similarities between the stories. The movie came out one year before the Manga started to be published. Coincidence?

Short review of the whole series:

The story of Emanon is a pretty unique and beautiful one, with an abundance of mysteries and emotions.
I have to say that I enjoyed the first part (Omoide Emanon) way more than the second one (Sasurai Emanon).
I felt the first part more impactful ,while the Sasurai Emanon gave me a weaker and more mild impression overall . Nonetheless both were really interesting.
The art is pretty and unique .I also consider important to refer that the way the enviroment is drawn is mesmerizing.

That's all ,I would totally recommend giving a read to the Emanon series as it's really good ,fast to ...
