Better late than never

A lot has already been said about Daisuke Igarashi's Children of the Sea, so there's not much for me to add. I deeply encourage everyone to check the book out, because it's one of the best manga out there, available in North America or not. While not as dense of Witches, it's a well-researched, accessible work that reads so quickly (due in part by not just Igarashi's lyrical decompression, but also by the translation) that you'll be aching for more when you reach the final page.

I'll depart with the link to read the series on Viz's Ikki and two examples of Igarashi's captivating two-page spreads:
