What the community says about Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms
- AnonymousWritten on April 12, 2018"In this slim but powerful work, Kouno accomplishes for manga what "Grave of the Fireflies" did for anime: it offers a sobering portrayal of the horrible effects of war on ordinary people. This is not the "view from 30,000 feet": there is no analysis of the reasons for the bombing, there is no blame assigned, there is no big picture summary. Instead, there is a very vivid, very real account of the short term and long lasting effects of the bombing on three generations of the "everyman" Hirano/Ishikawa family."
