From the creator of Monster comes the adventures of a globe trotting master of all things. Think the Indian Jones of anime in a way


If you want some slice of life tranquility but with a grown man instead of cute anime girls—and also set in Europe—watch this.


A deep yet light life stories of Keaton will make you understand that life is beautiful.



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
