    Thanks, Kaiten, for recommending this beautiful, yet bittersweet story. I loved it! I'd highly recommend this to anyone as well (and it would make quite a good featured series for next month, I think ).

    As I'm quite a nostalgic person, this manga really resonated with me. And the short length (only 1 volume) works perfect with the theme of the story. No matter how short an experience is, the impact can be large and the remaining memories are what is most important. Or, at least that's some of what I got out of it. I think it can be interpreted in different ways, especially the end. Very thought-provoking. I will certainly have to reread this one.

    I should also mention the art, which is gorgeous. Some of the double-page spreads are just amazing!

    Overall, a must-read for sure. ^^

    Like you, I thought the brevity reinforced the themes of memory and loss. The narrator only spent one night with Emanon yet the memories lingered his entire life. The story only lasted 150 pages but it will stay with me for a very long time. I want more, just like he wanted to see her again.

    I liked that the daughter, the new Emanon could see the beauty in her memories. While she was troubled on the boat ride, burdened by the weight of time, the younger one could see the bittersweet joy in the moment that can last forever, even as the narrator (was his name ever given, I might have missed it) was hoping that moment could come back.

    Hmm...I've been reading Wandering Emanon '67...there's no thread for it and I don't feel like making one, so I will just talk about it here.
