Rubber to the Road
The chase is on in Raqiya and things start to go kaboom left and right. Boichi once again proves that he can draw incredibly cinematic scenes with ease. It’s almost like watching a movie. Of course, this is but a small taste of what he has in store for us in future chapters. By the time we reach volume 5, each page is filled with so much greatness my eyes get bleary just looking at them.
If Raqiya was a big-budget Hollywood action movie, then Wandering Emanon would be one of those “Nouvelle Vague” indy drama with a minimalist plot, strong characters, deep dialogues and a generally existentialist feeling all around. At least that’s the impression I got from reading this manga.
