Noko’s life in Tokyo appears to be perfect: she has a good job and a loving boyfriend, but beneath this idyllic veneer there is a young woman at war with herself. Her self-image and self-confidence are at breaking point as she fights to keep her weight down.
To her, being five pounds overweight means her happiness is forever slightly out of reach. This is another astonishingly honest work from Moyoco Anno, who was the guest of honour at the New York ComicCon, and whose works have garnered worldwide acclaim.
