A must own.


This story works on so many levels that its almost frightening. Both it's real life story and the story on the book seem to work so well together. I strongly advice anyone buying this to first look up the author and read up on his death, trust me, it will make the ending 100 times better.

Satoshi Kon's Unfinished Masterwork

by -

This being a Satoshi Kon creation is reason enough to want to have it in your collection, however, Opus lives up to Kon's standard of quality and is one of my favorite manga. In just one short book Kon is able to create a unique, provocative and entertaining tale of metafiction. The book itself is fantastic similar to Dark Horse's Planetes release in terms of size and paper quality just not an omnibus. It is truly a shame that we lost such a creative talent so young, as not only does Opus thus remain incomplete we also lose out on any more anime Kon could have produced. If you are a Satoshi Kon fan already then you need this book and if you aren't a Satoshi Kon fan you will be after reading this book.

Highly Recommend


This manga was like a better version of the movie inception. This is my favorite single volume manga and will be reading it again. If you enjoy reading something that will keep you thinking, then this is the manga for you.

A steal at this price

I really liked reading this manga, it definitely has the vibe of something written by satoshi kon I only wished that he was able to completely finish it because you can for sure tell the posthumous ending they found didn't actually end it the true way that he wanted to

Great Buy

I've always loved Satoshi Kon's anime work and I'm happy to discover that his manga work is just as good. This is a really nice omnibus edition with good print and paper quality.
