An adult (I would say) work of Tezuka’s. I read it a little while ago and liked it but thought it was too short to probably ever be published so I wanted to work on it. If you just read through it with the pace Tezuka intends for you to read it at, I think you’ll really like it. When I started working on it though there were definitely more than a few times I thought “wait… this makes no sense”. The main character kind of changes his entire belief system on a whim. And why can’t he move anything else with telekinesis!? Don’t ask yourself these questions and just enjoy it. The ending I think, is really good.
The hardest thing to translate was the title. The word senritsu means melody but… I’ve never heard of it before, and I think even though the meanings are ultimately the same, the image it carries is probably a lot different and heavier than a word like melody. Tezuka was probably going for more of this unsettling arrangement of chimes… the train, the arms, the code, all kind of colliding haphazardly together. Definitely lost in the English title. Oh well.
EDIT: edited to add in a page I missed.
