Kuuki no Soko _ch06_Scales Cape

Tezuka in deep thought

Another short story from the collection kuuki no soko ch06 

This was a very thought provoking chapter for me, because this story's main character is Tezuka himself. The story begins with Tezuka arriving on a small island in the kii peninsula, from there Tezuka meets the locals in hopes to learn of any local legends of using so he can use it for a story. He learns of one particular legend the story of the Scales cape, a tale about a fishermen and how his young wife cheats on him with his servant, in a rage the fisherman tosses them both down the cave at the foot of the cape. Which a year later a boy casts a line into the cave in hopes of catching something and he does but something I would say is better seen then told. Tezuka later as he takes in the scenery hears the crys of a young boy. Tezuka finds out that the crying boy's friend has fallen into the cave and the town rushes to get him out. Tezuka lets the people of the town handle the problem. Tezuka then wanders the island a bit more and finds on the shore of the beach, a fish whose scales have all fallen off. Tezuka then gets the fish check and discovers a troubling problem with the sea sourrnding the island. The rest I will leave up to you guys to read. 

Why I enjoyed this story so much its something you really could believe Tezuka could have actually lived and experineced. The stories over tones really ring true to what tezuka was all about. The whole nothing is as it seems situation, how people find certain things, which are important yes but something much bigger  is there but everyone chooses to ignore it. Tezuka really shows how he feels about situations like that and how powerless he felt and how he thought with writing he would make a diffrence in the way people thought. Tezuka and writers like him really have had me thinking about my impact on this world and what I can do to change that. These are my thoughts really and I hope I enlightened you all.

  1. I'd probably do Spiderman first, so hopefully before that's over and dealt with, the translator/cleaner spots for Batsu & Teri would (at least) be filled. I should be able to handle/fill in for the 2 remaining spots by then, should they remain vacated.

    Now that I had a closer look at its raws-- and believe you me-- the art is gorgeous, there's motorcycles/car-chases, heck even nudity, and most importantly-- BASEBALL! What more can you ask for in a shounen series!? ;p I didn't think much of it then from the cover I saw @mangaupdates, but now... maybe we should just drop Bebop and focus our resources on this project instead! XD
