"Humanity, having faced extinction at the end of the 20th century, would not have entered the new millennium if it weren't for them. In 1969, during their youth, they created a symbol. In 1997, as the coming disaster slowly starts to unfold, that symbol returns. This is the story of a gang of boys who try to save the world. Failed rock musician Kenji's memories of his past come rushing back when one of his childhood friends mysteriously commits suicide. Could this new death be related to the rise of a bizarre new cult that's been implicated in several other murders and disappearances? Determined to dig deeper, Kenji reunites with some of his old buddies in the hope of learning the truth behind it all" -- p. [4] of cover.… (mais)

This is the first manga by Urasawa that I've read before, and I'm enjoying it immensely. It's got a great start, and I'm definitely going to read the rest. ( )

What can I say? I'm reading this because it's by the fantastic writer of Monster and it seems to have a mysterious premise. What I got out of the first volume was a deep immersion in a group of friends from both their childhood and them as adults 30 years past. There's a hugely successful cult that is tied pretty close to some events in their childhood, strongly suggesting that one of their ilk is this overpowered and nefarious cult leader... only, none of them can place him.

Did I mention that they promised to save the world using a flag they had made as children, and the symbol on that flag is being used by this nominally evil cult leader? Oooohhh, creepy.

I like the setup. It's detailed and focused on some pretty interesting folks. I can only assume that the tension will ramp up nicely, later. ( )

This manga was very similar to Monster in terms of pacing. There is a lot of skipping between characters scenes, though it is not hard to keep track of what’s going on most of the time, because the content blends well and adds something to the development of the plot. It is largely character-driven, and the players are quite compelling. It is no stretch to call this a masterpiece. You have a unique concept for a story, uncommonly polished artwork and expert, thriller pacing. However, I would not put it on the level of Vagabond or Vinland Saga for a few reasons.

Urasawa relies on cinematic cuts far too often. He cuts characters off mid-sentence in order to artificially infuse tension into the scenario. Not only does this make the plot appear more convoluted than it actually is, but creates a predictable pattern. Apart from that, the plot is as absurd as most thrillers. Thankfully, it is not too bogged down by politics. The characters are what elevate it to literature, if you ask me.

The nature of good and evil, sacrifice and love are all themes Urasawa never grows tired of exploring. As a storyteller, he knows how to surprise and delight. The big themes show through, even as he focuses on the individual plights of his main and side characters. The intriguing interactions and resonating decisions make the world a richer one than most other mangas. It is a slightly off-kilter world enmeshed in the nostalgia of a generation now past. Heavily influenced by Astro Boy, Urasawa provides nods to Tezuka at every turn. His series Pluto is an homage and retelling of part of Tezuka's most popular work. ( )

I've always been a fan of cults. I'll keep reading to see where it all goes. ( )
