Doug’s family had to move to Marysville. Now that they’re here, Dad still has a bad temper. Doug’s brother is still a jerk. Doug’s other brother is still in Vietnam. Doug still hides a secret. But Doug also has a job now, delivering groceries to young families and elderly shut-ins. He has the birds at the library. He has Miss Cowper’s Country Literacy Unit. And he has Lil Spicer. Marysville isn’t paradise, but for Doug, it’s good enough.

Eric is sure there’s a scientific explanation for the glowing mushrooms in the woods behind his house. And there’s an explanation for the mushrooms creeping into his backyard. And through the floorboards in the house. And over the football field. There’s not a place in town that isn’t covered in the luminescent fungus—and it might not be the first time the mushrooms have swallowed a town.

Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a protractor, a toy truck: All part of the box of stuff Min is returning to Ed. Each a reminder of a particular moment in the rise and fall of their relationship. Each item carefully documented in a letter explaining where things went wrong. It’s a collection of moments, of small-but-valid reasons things didn’t work out, all collected in a box and, like Ed himself, dumped.

The Azumas are so pleased with their newborn baby, Hikaru, and they delight in their little boy. But his mother, Sachiko, soon notices that her son doesn’t behave like the other babies, and this begins her struggle to cope with a special-needs child in a society that doesn’t understand—or, seemingly, want to understand—autism. Coping with the magnitude of Hikaru’s disability is hard enough, but Sachiko must also become an advocate for her son for his schooling, health care, and even social interactions.
This is a Japanese manga unlike most others you’ve seen: this is not a slapstick gender-bending fantasy adventure, but rather a realistic, family-based story for adults. Don’t be put off because it reads “backwards”—as you get absorbed into the Azumas’ story, you’ll forget that you’re even reading it right to left.
