The Crater – Okuchin's Unwelcome Guest

Story #10, the last one from book 1. I’ve read this one a few times and I always get close to crying but not all the way there. It’s a bit of a tearjerker. It’s one of my favorites from The Crater. The Jesus-looking guy is a little bit weird and a lot of it is corny jokes but, stay with it. I also remember reading someone’s analysis of Paranoia Agent awhile back talking about how Japanese media doesn’t touch on the A-Bomb a lot, but here is one exception. Tezuka is kind of the biggest sufferer of PTSD in the universe though.

Also, the avatar image I use I notice was taken from this chapter. Non-existent non-prizes that are actually nothing and not a prize will be given to the person who finds where it is.

    Reading Tezuka’s works always give me shivers, not of fear but of what an amazing storyteller he was.
    Thank you so much for translating them 🙂

      I know what you mean. He’s very consistent with that feeling too, in spite of his large library. Thanks.
