HOTEL (complete), by Boichi

Compilation of short stories by Boichi:

• Hotel

It is the year 2272 A.D. A computer continues to live on in order to complete a mission in a world where all life, including Mankind, has gone extinct. This is a record of those 27 million years of its heroic struggle.

• Present

Hanako suffers from a terrible disease. After awakening from a deep slumber, Hanako has only three days to live. During those three days, her husband, Takao, must endure a heart-breaking experience, knowing that the person Hanako really loves isn’t him.

• Subete wa Maguro no Tame da (It Was All for the Tuna)

Tuna have become extinct and Jun Shiozaki will do everything possible and imaginable to bring them back.

• Stephanos

Set in modern-day Japan, our main character Noriko finds out that she is pregnant with her lover Matsumura’s baby. He, however, is an important doctor with a family and everything already. Noriko wants to have the baby, but Matsumura says that it’s actually a rapidly growing cancer and that they have to remove it immediately. It might also be neither of these things…

• Diadem

A “Diadem” is a word for ‘crown’ that has its root in Greek. “Stephanos”, which appeared in “Mandala” 01, was also a ‘crown’. It seems that we could consider this the second work in a continuing series of shorts that should perhaps be called a “Crown series”.

Passing-Fancy.com – Manga W

Wolfsmund is a dark historical manga set in the early 14th century of Europe (Switzerland). The story revolves around the eponymous fortress in the St. Gotthard Pass which is ruled by a sadistic tyrant. Basically, each chapter deals with characters who for some reason have to cross the pass and who end up getting interrogated by the mentioned tyrant.

What sets this manga apart is the fact that there’s rarely a happy ending for our protagonists. The author pulls no punches to show us just how brutal and inhuman the Middle Ages really were.
