Oh! A Mystery of ‘Mono no Aware’
Written by Todd Shimoda; Art by L.J.C. Shimoda; Chin Music Press, 2009
“Mono = things, stuff; no = of; aware = emotion, especially a deep sadness”
Zack Hara, a twenty-something technical writer trudging through each day in L.A., devoid of passion, hate, love, any sustained emotion, leaves his job, part-time lover, and antique Chevy pickup truck to travel to Japan in search of an emotionally fulfilling life.
