Book Review: Mujirushi - The Sign of Dreams by Naoki Urasawa (Manga)

Title: Mujirushi - The Sign of Dreams
Author: Naoki Urasawa
Publisher: Viz Media

Publication Date: 21 July 2020
ARC via NetGalley

Kamoda will do anything to earn a quick buck, even if it means skipping out on his taxes to take his wife on a luxury cruise. But when a random tax audit bankrupts his family, Kamoda soon discovers his wife has taken that cruise after all—only without Kamoda or their daughter Kasumi.

Desperate to provide, Kamoda invests in a scheme to mass-produce masks of controversial American presidential candidate Beverly Duncan. But a lackluster election kills their sales potential, burying Kamoda under a mountain of masks and debt. On the verge of despair, Kamoda discovers a sign that leads him to the Director, an art fanatic who vows he can make all of Kamoda and Kasumi’s dreams come true. 

Mujirushi was an entertaining read. The plot was fun and there was plenty of action and adventure as Kamoda and Kasumi attempted their heist. This is a complete, single-volume story, so no need to wait for further volumes to find out what will happen. Overall I liked the artwork, which suited the style of the piece, and reading this tale was a fun way to pass an hour.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
