The Heart of ThomasBook - 2012
The setting: A boys' boarding school in Germany, sometime in the latter 20th Century. Fourteen year-old Thomas Werner falls from a lonely pedestrian overpass to his death immediately after sending a single, brief letter to a schoolmate. Found near or at the top of any list of classic manga, and translated by manga scholar Matt Thorn , The Heart of Thomas is already the most eagerly anticipated manga translation of the new decade.
