Reviews

If you saw Shane Carruth's Upstream Color and want a similar combination of technical brilliance and emotional weight in your manga, then Nijigahara Holograph should definitely be in your 'to read' stack... It carries a palpable dread that will haunt you well after you put it down. --Kevin Church"
The story unfolds asynchronously, creating a sense of mystery. Why does the kids' teacher, Miss Sakaki, have bandages on her face? Why is the class bully so affected by what happened to Arie? Why is the new kid at school, Amahiko, willing to jump out of his classroom's window? And why are there glowing butterflies everywhere? "
It s a brilliant piece of psychological horror that is both deeply intimate yet expansive in scope, with a large cast of characters that are sucked into the terror in different ways. The cyclical, abstract story is challenging, but greatly rewards rereading, and it s easy to get lost in Asano s intricate art, which does outstanding work realizing the setting that is so important to the plot.--Oliver Sava"

This beautifully drawn but elliptically told story is almost relentless in its depiction of the evil that lurks behind everyday life, but it's impossible to put down. Fable and film-noir crime mix in a small town where the children believe a beast living in a tunnel is a sign of the end of the world, and adults cope with the aftereffects of a hideous crime. This is a book that rewards repeated readings...--Brigid Alverson
