Sayonara Japan
By: Otomo Katsuhiro
Genre: Drama
Serialized In: Manga Action

The experiences of two Japanese people who move to the US; one a judo teacher, the other a guitarist.

By the mangaka of Akira

Originally released in 1981 Sayonara Japan is a short series released by Otomo before he began work on Akira. The first chapter was released earlier today. In addition to the five chapter series Sayonara Japan, three one shots are also included, including the first chapter of the volume. A worthwhile read for anyone looking to read seinen from the late 70's/early 80's. I'm looking forward to the next chapter, the first of the proper story.
