●BOOK● OTOMO THE COMPLETE WORKS 4: SAYONARA NIPPON (さよならにっぽん)


The fourth volume of OTOMO THE COMPLETE WORKS collects the five episodes of Sayonara Nippon (さよならにっぽん) manga published originally in Futabasha's Manga Action magazine and eight short stories created before and after that from 1977 to 1978 when Otomo was 23 to 24 years old. 

Even though this book shares its title with the 1981 edition of SAYONARA NIPPON (さよならにっぽん) published by Futabasha, its content differs greatly as this new volume presents Otomo's short stories in the chronological order in which they were published for the first time in various magazines.

Apart from Sayonara Nippon, this book collects three stories previously collected in the book HIGHWAY STAR (ハイウェイスター) published by Futabasha in 1979, four stories from GOOD WEATHER published by Kitansha in 1981 and two more collected in KANOJO NO OMOIDE (彼女の想いで…) published by Kodansha in 1990. All the original color pages are reproduced in this edition.
