CartoonBrew: The Kyoto Animation Arson Attack Haunts New Manga ‘Look Back’


It's been two years this month since the arson attack on Studio One of Kyoto Animation that killed 36 people.

Manga creator Tatsuki Fujimoto created a 140 page tribute story titled "Look Back" as a memorial to the tragic event. CartoonBrew has more:

"Look Back features an incident that recalls what happened at the studio. It is also a story about the comfort art can bring to those in distress, and so serves as a tribute to all artists, including those who have suffered and died for their work.

"The 140-page one-shot manga instantly made waves, racking up 2.5 million views in one day on Shonen Jump Plus (the online magazine that released the Japanese version). It can (officially) be read in English for free in Viz Media’s Shonen Jump online library — check it out here."
