About Emanon Manga Volume 1

Emanon Manga Volume 1 features story and art by Kenji Tsurata.

The year is 1967, and a young Japanese man is thinking about the future. On one side of the water, the war is raging in Vietnam; far away on the other side, the Apollo Project has just met with disaster as three astronauts die in a capsule fire. And here and now, on a long nighttime ferry ride back home, he will meet and fall in love with a mysterious young woman who carries a past deeper and more profound than his dreams and fears of tomorrow. Her name, she jokes, is no name—Emanon…and she can never be forgotten, any more than she can forget…

Happy Beyond Words


Found this online years ago and it was one of the first manga to introduce me to how a story can move while seemingly doing nothing. Honestly felt a bit like crying when I saw that it was getting an English release. Hope it lives up to the memories.

You meet the nicest people on a ferry.


Well done and detailed art, with great writing. The story of a chance meeting on a ferry, totally expands a male college student's outlook on the world. Emanon has a lot to consider as you read. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a change from the standard manga routine, or anyone that likes having a thought-provoking read.

I picked this up after seeing some reviews saying that it was a refreshing and unique manga that is unlike anything they’ve read before, and I am not disappointed.
Emanon delivers a great atmosphere, interesting characters and a compelling concept just about as good as a single volume can do. The thought provoking dialogues and themes in the volume aren’t presented in a corny way and it is beautifully drawn as well on very high quality paper as expected of dark horse (as well as a bountiful amount of BEAUTIFUL colour pages).
If you’re looking for something different and unique that will make you think twice about how you perceive the concept of time, compacted into a beautiful 1 volume release I would recommend this volume to you.
