Heavenly Delusion Vol. 02
Disease and a new race of supernatural beings have nearly wiped out mankind, and two survivors are on the hunt for an oasis called Tomato Heaven.
After heading south to investigate the place known as Tomato Heaven, Maru and Kiruko head back to Tokyo via a “ferry”. But they are ambushed at sea by one of the man-eating Hiruko monsters. This specific beast is amphibious, making him extremely deadly as he can easily take cover in the sea. Meanwhile in the school, Tokio, with the help of his classmate Kuku, uncovers a frightening secret. Maybe life is not what it seems at all. Maybe those who are inside the walls are not in heaven. And maybe the walls are there to keep them all inside!
Masakazu Ishiguro was born in Fukui Prefecture in 1977. An multiple award winning artist, he broke though in 200 when we was presented with the Afternoon Four Seasons Award for his work on the short “HERO”. While he broke through within the sci-fi genre, Ishiguro is possibly best known for his comedies; particularly the Japan Media Arts Award winning AND YES THE TOWN MOVES (Shonen Gahosha).
