This is an awesome series done by Tobe Keiko, currently at 12 volumes and still on going.


Basically it follows Sachiko and Masato Azuma as they have their first child, and have to come to terms with him being autistic. Itfollows the collapse and rebirth of their familly, having to deal with a society that dosen't understand or accept autism, and how they survive as a family.

It's licensed by Yen Press, and being released with 2 volumes in 1, so voluem 1 included volumes 1&2, and vol2 due for release next month will have vols 3&4. Currently it's upto 12 volumes in japan, and is still on going. UIt's also been adapted into a JDrama.

It's an awesome series, well worth reading!!!

No scanlations for it though, so you'll need to buy the books

It's definately available in the UK (I know because I live in the UK and I was able to read it).

It's an intersting book and does contain some good information about autism. It'll probably appeal to people who like slice-of-life stories.

Yeah, it's based on factual events and stuff, so it's not your atypical manga. I also think those that love the shojo art style will like it aswell

I don't know if there's a topic on this manga. If there is, then feel free to delete it. I think I found the first manga about autism EVER made! I was looking up Autism on Wikipedia (I'm autistic myself) until I found 'with the light'. I clicked on it and you will NOT, I repeat, NOT believe what I found! I could make this up but I didn't! A manga about Autism! by Tobe Keiko! Here's an Amazon link (sorry!)

http://www.amazon.com/Light-Vol-Rais...8216847&sr=1-1

Oh my goodness! I never thought such a manga even existed! I even dreamed of making the first autistic anime/manga character! Oh well! I think I found something so out of my expectations that even my parents might be shocked! I hope nobody minds. It's currently licensed by Yen Press (I'm unfamiliar with them and have no manga licensed by them). I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want this manga! It looks so cute! I'm gonna ask my dad if I can order it! If anyone wishes to find a manga like this, please order it (I have NO CLUE if it's in Borders or not) and check out! You'll love it! I'll even recommend it to parents!

My dad and I ordered two volumes of this off of Amazon. I really want this book! I didn't think something like this existed until 2 days ago! Go me (in case you don't know, I'm autistic myself)!

I got my copies of volumes 1 and 2! I loved them! It was so good! My dad wanted to read it too! I really love this series! It's such a shame there's no anime for this! The only thing I don't like about the format that Yen Press put it in is that I found in volume 2, some of the pages looked like they were ripped out. I guess Yen Press couldn't fit those pages in. I wonder if mighty putty would put them in?

You probably got a dodgy copy then. Yen didn't remove anything from the releases so far.

And while there is no anime and never likely to be, there is a live action adaption that ran for 11 episodes. I've the raws for it somewhere.

Can't say I've read her work before (heard of the Jdrama, which I held off from watching because I get depressed really easily), but I hope someone pick up her work and finish the piece eventually.

She'll be missed.

This was the first Manga I read, mostly from a mention on the Wikipedia.

I was impressed to find a Manga dealing with autism, and with me being interested in Japanese culture it ticked all the boxes.

I now have the first 6 (English translation) volumes. Lucky for me Amazon UK stock them at a reasonable price.

My parents were very impressed by it as well, though my Mum wondered why it had to be read backwards & why almost no-one in it looked Japanese!

It's very sad that Keiko Tobe is no longer with us.

I would like to see the live action adaptation, is there any fansubs?
