Summary
By confusing their personal problems with political ones, Ben and Miko are strangely alone together and oddly alike, even as they fly apart. Being human, all too human, they fail to see that what unites them is their shared hypocrisies, their double standards. This gray zone between the personal and the political is a minefield that Tomine navigates boldly and nimbly. The charged, volatile dialogues that result are unlike anything in Tomine's previous work or, for that matter, comics in general
Summary
A graphic novel in which Ben Tanaka tries to salvage his failing long-term relationship with Miko Hayashi, who suspects Ben is more attracted to white women, an accusation that causes their personal and political problems to reach a boiling point.
