GEN Manga is Indie Manga from the TokyoUnderground.
GEN Manga was made to give fans an exclusive look at real doujinshi,otherwise known as indie manga, that they had heard about, but until now, unableto get their hands on. In its essence, doujinshi is manga traded amongother manga artists. Manga for manga lovers!
Seemingly mundane events twist with an unusual presence of the unreal asthe psyche of ordinary people is explored. Depression, time, and thought areredefined. Alive is a collection of melancholy love stories saturatedwith sadness. Characters struggle to connect with one another but never quitesucceed. They are essentially alone. Enter a world that is dark and disturbing— suicide is constantly contemplated and feelings of guilt, inadequacy,and suppressed sexuality surface as identity itself becomes a terribly fragilething.
