As  change of pace, Asa is having some normal high school drama with her friends only for it to be interrupted by some fishermen spotting the monster the government is trying to hide. And to make matters worse, a reporter is snooping around the air hanger containing the plane they want to use to fight the creature.

Things are coming to a head with Asa and the scientist, Nakaido closing on on whatever is out in the ocean. I am so into what’s going to happen; especially with Asa facing down the thing that killed most of her family. It’s an interesting mystery. 4 out of 5.

Asadora meets a scientist who is studying large creatures like the one that caused such destruction when she was a child. The Japanese government wants her help as the Olympics will be held in Japan and they don’t want some monster causing trouble.

Asa is the glue that holds this all together. She’s just a great character and grounding force in what looks like is amping up to some craziness. I’d bet there’s gonna be some giant monster battles but I think I’m going to stop expecting things with this series and just go along for the ride because it’s cool! 5 out of 5.

Jumping in to the future, it is now 1964 and Asadora is now 17, a pilot, and working with Kasuga at their advertising company; while also going to school and raising her younger siblings. A strange man comes around asking questions about the creature they saw destroy their hometown and the likelihood it is still around and a threat.

This is a strange little series so far. I’m totally here for it; I love Asadora, I wanna know more about the creature and what will happen next but whatever expectations I had were completely subverted. Sometimes that can be frustrating but I found it welcome and look forward to seeing how this continues. 4 out of 5.

Taking place in 1959, Asa is one of so many siblings she gets lost among them; frequently mistaken for the others if not forgotten about entirely. When her mother goes into labor during a typhoon, Asa runs out to get the doctor. She ends up kidnapped by Kasuga; a desperate war veteran who needs money.

Well, this book went in unexpected directions. And no, nothing horrible happens to Asa. This is a wholesome read about a random little girl swept up into an adventure and has this positive energy to pull in others along with her. Asa is very sweet and I can’t wait to see what’s next; even if it all comes off as a bit too idealistic But the world id dark enough already. I’ll take it. 4.9 out of 5.
