Your first image of Shotaro Ishinomori, author of Cyborg 009, Super Sentai, and Kamen Rider, probably isn't that of an experimental writer. However, this was the time of Gekiga, and Ishinomori proved he could match in experimentalness any of the up-and-coming underground artists. This is the story of Jun, a boy who wants to be manga writer. It is a story of being a manga writer, and of the wonder of imagination. It is also a love story, with a girl who takes many forms.

Shotaro Ishinomori is a mangaka known to few, but whose influence on manga and other forms of media is undeniable.

jun shoutarou no fantasy world is easily my favourite manga of all time
the motifs of physical and emotional growth and philosophies of sadness and isolation are beautifully conveyed through a manga which takes place directly in ishnomori's train of thought
while some ideas appear irrelevant, the way these thoughts are presented in such a raw way gives an authenticity of emotion that not much other literature can do
the art style and physical format of jun's feelings is a pleasure to look at
this manga was incredibly ahead of its time and easily ishnomori's most personal and introspective work
