    "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."

    "Interesting historical piece. Told through the eyes of a woman in Japan after the war in Hiroshima. The plot moves quickly and it was a time and location that hasn't been discussed much before. "
