Shinjyurou Mamiya is an embalmer, a profession seen as "unclean" in Japan. Shinjyurou has accepted the life of an outcast amongst most people; to him it is a job and nothing more. He has gained an exceptional understanding of death and its consequences, as well as what it means to live. Mitsukazu Mihara brings us another psychological masterpiece in several thought-provoking volumes, the first alone of which explores the meanings of beauty, love and loss. (Source: ANN)
