Its striking graphic artwork is inspired by European graphic novels, but retains a distinctly Japanese sensibility. In short, Tekkon Kinkreet is a truly original creation that dazzles the eye and touches the heart.(Quote:About.com)

【Devilchoco Review】

Urban residents share some characters with the city they live in. When the city falls apart from disaster or redevelopment, many of the inhabitants feel like they have been hurt and invaded. It’s hard to find a comic book that makes you cry as much as this one.

The author went to Europe before writing this comic book. The European streets might be the inspiration source for the unique and weird city view in “Tekkin Concrete”.

Everything has the good and the bad.
The story describes such a theme through the main characters, Shiro and Kuro.
There is some feeling that will be left when you finish reading.

This one is good also for grown-ups.

海外周遊と漫画が好き。

点が繋がり絵となる。
その絵に物語と言葉が繋がり漫画となる。
2次元で創造された世界が時代や国境を越えて私達読み手へと繋がっていく。
Asian-portからそんな世界を目指したい。

I Love traveling abroad and reading comic books.

Dots turn into the drawing.
The drawing gets connected with the story, becoming a comic book.
The 2-D world goes beyond the borders and generations to reach us, readers.
This is what I would like to accomplish on Asian-port.
