Memories of Emanon Reviews

  • Hossain

    This manga has a cool concept, but the execution was not my liking. Mostly because Emanon didn't feel like a person who has the memory of 3 billions years and the first interactions between the protagonist and Emanon felt contrived, but the artworks was so beautiful it almost made me forgive the flaws of this book.

    2,5. En otroligt vackert tecknad scifiberättelse som inte riktigt greppar tag i mig personligen. En nypa magisk realism kombinerat med en nypa vanlig-kille-träffar-magisk-tjej. Fungerar för stunden, men inget jag kommer minnas om ett år.

  • Alex Pler

    Pocas veces un manga te emociona tanto como este en su desenlace. Me ha recordado a los viejos tiempos de Video Girl Ai, pero condensado en un único tomo. Ojalá nos lleguen las novelas originales.

  • Emi

    Este manga es de esos que te dejan con una buena sensación después de leerlos. El dibujo es una preciosidad. Me limitaré a decir que me encanta el trabajo de Kenji Tsuruta y que fue el motivo principal por el que lo compré (es espectacular), pero el argumento y cómo se desarrolla la historia también me ha encantado. Una parte es ciencia ficción, pero para mí tiene más peso la parte de la historia cotidiana.El personaje de Emanon resulta muy interesante. Recuerdo haberme preguntado en cl [...]

    La memoria de la vida misma *-* .Primero leí Errante Emanon (wandering Emanon) que vendría a ser la segunda novela, y me gusto mucho! y con esta amé toda la historia de Emanon, recomiendo leer primero la 2da y luego 1 las memorias de Emanon (Memories Of Emanon) ya que ambos finales de ambas novelas están conectadas.

    "Some experiences are better off forgotten than remembered."Quick thoughts: Beautifully realized, thought provoking story about memory and the fleeting moments of life.

  • Meghan Fidler

    Adult conversation, beautiful art and a delightfully intriguing storyline. I shall have to find the next one!

  • Hadrian

    Beautiful and expressive.

  • Travis

    Onboard a ship in 1967, a college student meets a mysterious girl, Emanon ("no name" backwards) who, after seeing him reading a novel in which memories can be passed from one person to another, confides to him that she is three billion years old mentally. Physically she's seventeen, but she has memories dating back to the beginning of life on Earth.This has lovely art and is intriguing, but I find it annoying that it's not actually about Emanon, but about this guy who meets her and how that affe [...]

    Omoide Emanon me surpreendeu logo no primeiro capitulo não pela história ou roteiro, mas sim pelos desenhos, a história é contada sem pressa e foi excepcionalmente bem desenhado por Shinji Kajio.Ela tem um desenrolar bem devagar que caiu muito bem para a história e apresentou muito bem os personagens. O simbolismo do cigarro em Emanon é explicito e explorou muito bem a idéia do passado moldar o agora.

  • Vittra Lindstrand

    This is a 3+ for me.The pictures are so beautiful (4+) and I like aspects of the story but storywise it feels like something is missing.The images have a lot of sensitivity.There is a melancholy and a sort of calmness. 3 words that describe this comic:Subtle, beautiful and melancholicI just would have wanted to have been able to connect better with it but the story wasn't good enough for that to happen.

  • Sonia

    Boken illustrerar både människor och miljöer på ett vackert och detaljerat sätt. Det var en intressant idé till handlingen också.

  • Emma

    The art is amazing, the story not so much. It feels unfinished and like it could have been good but wasn't.

  • Sara

    I don't know what to say about this book to be honest. I haven't really read anything like it before. It's really good, though and leaves me with a lot of thoughts and questions. I like the whole trope of two people meeting and only spending a very limited amount of time together but having that time feel like a lifetime. I honestly don't know what to say or how to explain how I feel but I do recommend it. It could so easily have become a Manic Pixie Dream Girl disaster but it never did. Mostly [...]

  • Michael Scott

    (Pursuing my goal of reading a bit of every type of manga.) Memories of Emanon (Omoide Emanon) is a masterpiece manga about a girl whose memories preserve intact the 3-billion history of all creatures it descends from. (Manga type: mystical, psychological, romance.) Overall, beautiful, really beautiful artwork, a somewhat intriguing story, and a strong female character.Artwork: Truly great! There's slice-of-life, photo-realistic quality on display. There's also manga at its best, with movie-like [...]

  • Álvaro Arbonés

    Nuestra tendencia a poner nombre a las cosas viene determinada por nuestra necesidad de familiarizar todo cuanto nos rodea. Si algo tiene nombre, lo sentimos como algo más cercano, menos misterioso. No es lo mismo un gato callejero que Michifú, el gato que siempre se deja ver por el parque al anochecer. De ahí que, cuando queremos mantener algo en secreto o no romper su aura de misterio, no necesitamos ocultarlo, sino mantenerlo, de entrada, innombrado.Eso es lo que hace consigo misma la prot [...]

  • Chechu Rebota

    No esperes encontrar en esta adaptación a manga por parte de Tsuruta de la novela de Kajio la típica historia de ciencia ficción. Aquí no hay ciudades futuristas, laboratorios, distopías, seres robóticos ni demás tópicos del genero. Lo que tenemos entre manos es el encuentro en un ferry en el Japón de  1967 de un chico y una chica. El el un fanático de la ciencia ficción enamoradizo que trata de superar una ruptura, ella asegura atesorar 3000 millones de años de recuerdos, desde que [...]

    Excellent. Especially Tsuruta's art, which is clean and expressive. Judging by his previous work Forget-me-not, Tsuruta likes drawing long-haired girls in jeans; it's no wonder the heroines in both bear a strong resemblance to each other. But whereas Mariel often looked bored and jaded, Enamon is bright-eyed, freckled and startlingly wise. She is both serious and lighthearted and you can see it in her face. I love the way Tsuruta draws eyes--he fills in the irises with light and radial patterns [...]

  • Onírica Celia

    Hace años los manga dejaron de motivarme realmente. Quizá por ello leo y leo nuevos títulos y jamás he dejado de hacerlo: busco encontrar esa obra y ese autor que me sorprenda. Lo he conseguido pocas veces, y esta no es una dulce excepción, desgraciadamente. De nuevo, el guión tiene una propuesta interesante pero queda en un sendero flojo y mal construido, infantil incluso. Lo único que acaba siendo de sobresaliente es el dibujo (de ahí que acabara dándole 3 estrellas), como suele ser h [...]

  • P.H. Wilson

    Real rating:6.9/10Manga/GN rating: 8.5/10Extremely brief yet poignantly so. At its heart Memories of Emanon is a brilliant premise with a modern spin on the immortal cliché. Yet it has subtle nuances of love and spirituality. It is the type of tale that one could recommend to those who do not regularly read the Manga/GN genre and still be able to guarantee their satisfaction. It speaks of depth and soul with out a wordiness that compromises its structure.

  • Deflorio Daniela

    Un manga tra fantascienza e fantasia un mistero che si cela in ogni essere vivente perché, forse, in ognuno di noi è nascosta la memoria della creazione. Una storia che si legge tutta d'un fiato e che lascia parecchie domande alle quali, solo una mente fantasiosa può dare risposta e crederci :-)

  • Gisso

    Una historia emotiva y hermosa que nos provocará añoranza. Un encuentro fortuito, una chica misteriosa con una historia increíble, miradas complices en medio del silencio, un momento efímero para recordar toda una vida; o toda la eternidad. Y un final que te deja reflexionando con la piel de gallina.

  • Rina Vanguard

    Omoide Emanon is easily one of my favorite short manga of all time. The art is beautiful, the concept and its execution are fascinating, and the story resonated with me long after I finished reading. While I wouldn't recommend it to everyone I know, I strongly believe it deserves to be read by more people!

  • Emelie

    Well, this was an interesting story enough, about a wayward girl meeting a shy boy on a boat trip. To pass the time, the girl tells the boy a story.I didn't fancy the drawing style at all, so that put me off a little from the story as well. I am intrigued enough to maybe try the read the novel the manga is based upon.

  • Buttons

    Imagine being a young adult and having the memories of your mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and so forth back to the beginning of life itself. 3 billions years. Kept in one single mind. What would your role be, your reason for existence, would you tire of it?

  • Chibivy

    Beautiful story! I like her name Emanon, which is "no name" spelled backwards. I really love the uniqueness of the concept. Nice art too!

  • Carol Mola

    Me ha parecido precioso. Me he enamorado de Emanon.

  • Leandro Guimarães

    Intriguing.
