This seinen manga continues to please me. While each chapter is still a vignette from the "Star Kids Home" the characters are recurring whose character's are building upon their past experiences. Both the children and the adults. While there is no overreaching arc, the individual characters have backgrounds and story lines that are slowly being played out. This a real "slice of life" story of a Japanese home for children whose parents can't look after them for whatever reasons taking place during the 1970s. This volume pays particular attention to the oldest members of the staff, the old original owner, his son the current owner and a college student, a former resident at the home. The second half deals with the children and their loneliness when they allow themselves to think of their parents (mothers mostly). A sensitive story, and a slow one, but the vignettes are a powerful tool not allowing us to dwell on one event for very long. This is also a quality produced tome with hardcovers, nice paper and art done with inks. ( )
