I have followed this manga. Wonderful story in post-nuclear Japan … if the author wasn’t so right… right down to predicting that FOUR nuclear reactors damaged from earthquake would turn a section of Japan into no-man’s-land. Only off by a few years and the exact location, the story is uncanny accurate.
The anime is no less controversal… many things from the manga have been toned down to soften the damage. But it might be more for nuclear industry than for those who lost their lives in the earthquake.
Coppelion challenges what is human, what is monster, what it means to be alive when everything is lost and there is life where no life should exist. A lighter side of the end of the world … a masterpiece that some industries would rather you not see. A MUST watch by my standards.
