Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee, Volume 1 by Hiroyuki AsadaWhat a charming and unique series! I love the concept: a world where there is only darkness and an artificial sun to combat it, where society is split by a rigorously enforced caste system, where sending a simple letter from one town to another is a death-defying mission that requires a strong heart to survive.
Volume one opens with Letter Bee extraordinaire, Gauche Suede and his dingo (a necessary companion for each Letter Bee), picking up a letter in the form of a young boy who must be delivered to a relative far away. The boy, Lag Seeing, witnesses the bravery and tenacity of the legendary Letter Bee and is determined to become one himself. 5 years later, he sets off for the capital in the hopes of training to become a Letter Bee. First, however, he feels compelled to deliver a letter in the form of a young girl, to whom he obviously relates. Since the girl has insufficient postage, no one else will deliver her. Lag sets off with the strange young girl, who expresses a desire to become his dingo.
Bits of commentary at the end hint at a rich and complex world, with the potential to turn into something far more intellectual than your average manga. Great series.

When the first train passed us, the morning sun reflected off its windows Like light from a flash-light, it projected us. Before the ghost of summer started to run wild, I had all the hope I could have Like light from a flash-light, it illuminated the future. Runaway Runaway Runaway Yup! To everywhere, Go far away, Yup!
