Arata from present-day Japan has swapped places with Arata in a fantasy world sorta kinda not really resembling ancient Japan. Mostly with the 'not really' part.In this volume, he's been sent to a prison island, which he finds out is really really horrible. And the entire volume is spent learning just how horrible, and figuring out how to get out of there.By the end of it, I started to get a sense of where the series was headed.There are no translation notes, and they're probably not needed, since the only untranslated words are made-up and/or specialized words in the context of the fantasy world. And my only disappointment with the English version is that the original color pages aren't in color. I'd like to get a better sense of what people look like in color, and I can only get that if they happen to appear on the cover of the volumes.Anyway, worth continuing to read the next volume when it comes out.
