About the Author
Masakazu Ishiguro was born in Fukui Prefecture in 1977. An
multiple award winning artist, he broke though in 200 when we was
presented with the Afternoon Four Seasons Award for his work on the
short "HERO".

While he broke through within the sci-fi genre, Ishiguro is possibly best known for his comedies; particularly the Japan Media Arts Award winning And Yet the Town Moves
(Shonen Gahosha). Whimsical, stylish, and often surreal, Ishiguro's
works are often put into their own genre - SF (Slightly Fantastical).
Reviews


Heavenly Delusion does
many things, and it does them well. Ishiguro makes great use of contrast particularly in building up
atmosphere and setting. All this is realized with delicate, detailed linework, with
what little shading is there done through pen-and-ink techniques such as
crosshatching. Its central characters think and act and
talk like human beings[...] One thing it does not do, however, is give
any answers. Not a single one.


[T]here are way too many unique storylines and elements set-up
that are fascinating to read, and it only begs for me to learn more. If
you're in need of a sci-fi manga, you won't be making a mistake checking
this one out.--Justin "The OASG"
