I should seriously disappear off the internet to get my work done but I heard a while back that.. TAIYOU MATSUMOTO’S SUNNY IS GETTING AN ENGLISH TRANSLATION.. AH.. THANK YOU VIZ
I think what elevates Sunny above a simple ‘story about kids in an orphanage’ is that some of the main characters aren’t actually orphans.. their parents are still alive but they have to stay in the orphanage/home anyway and they end up thinking / trying not to think about their parents and why they can’t go home :( it’s incredible and yet not overwrought with pathos? you’re reminded that they’re still kids and can be as selfish and bratty as any real kid you could know and love and get exasperated by.
PS. any chance of translating Takemitsuzamurai too :’)
Taiyo Matsumoto the prodigious mangaka behind Tekkonkinkreet, Aoi Haru and more. Awesome!
