Synopsis

Orphaned on the mean streets of Treasure Town, lost boys Black and White must mug, steal and fight to survive. Around them moves a world of corruption and loneliness, small-time crooks and neurotic police officers, and a band of sadistic yakuza who have plans for their once-fair city. Can they rise above their environment? Surreal manga influenced by European comics. TEKKONKINKREET is a play on Japanese words meaning "a concrete structure with an iron frame," and it suggests the opposing images of concrete cities against the strength of imagination.

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Parka TOP 500 REZENSENT am 14. September 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Länge: 0:14 Minuten
Tekkon Kinkreet was originally published as a Japanese manga in 1993. The title is a pun on "Tekkin" and "Concrete", the Japanese term for reinforced concrete.

Just four years before creating Tekkon Kinkreet, Taiyo Matsumoto had traveled to France for artistic research. The style of art in this book was heavily the French comics he studied there. It's a mixture of French line art with Japanese manga paneling.

The story is about two orphans, Black and White, who live in the fictional Treasure Town as they take on the yakuzas trying to take over the city. They are street kids, known as the Cats. Black is violent and sees it his responsibility to take care of his seemingly innocent brother White. Oh, and these boys can fly, literally.

Just as the names of the kids suggest, this theme is on the light and darkness. It's about how the kids relationship with people around them, having to find the way in their own lives on the streets, most oftentimes ending with violence. It is a gritty tale about friendship and change. There are no heroes in this book.

I actually bought the book after viewing the Blu-ray version of the anime. The adaptation is quite faithful. In fact, I was underwhelmed by the comic since the anime featured some pretty spectacular background paintings. The manga is a distilled version of that in terms of art and style. You should read the book first before watching the anime.

The story is simple, really, narrative absorbing. Overall recommended.

Großartige Zeichnungen, eine unglaubliche Story mit so viel Tiefe.
Ich liebe dieses Buch und empfehle es jeden der sich für Comics interessiert.
Es berührt, bewegt und verbreitet Fassungslosigkeit.
Ich übertreibe nicht wenn ich es als Meisterwerk bezeichne!

A masterpiece. 22. September 2007
Von Luca Vitale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This might be the best graphic novel ever written, and I don`t say that lightly. It`s a shame that it doesn`t have a wide circulation in Europe and US. It`s pretty much impossible to compare to anything else, Tekkon Kinkreet it`s the most lyrical and at at the same time the most anti-conformist comic you`ll ever read. Think Miyazaki, Tank Girl and Takeshi Kitano all wrapped up in one story that is so good it hurts. Just get it, if you like indie comics chances are this is your new favorite one.

Gorgeous, absorbing graphic narrative 8. März 2008
Von zinegrrl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
During a trip to Japan recently I came across the film version of this book, which had just won many awards. When I learned it was based on a graphic novel, I scoured the bookstands here in the US for it to no avail. Luckily Amazon had it (along with the English-subtitled movie). Tekkon Kinkreet is a richly engaging graphic narrative, its visual language referencing French comics but with the horizontal, angled paneling of more traditional Japanese Manga. Though it's about two scrappy kids, this is most definitely NOT a comic book for children: it's full of violence and references to the seedy underworld of the city (gangsters, strip clubs, etc.). Though those things would usually turn me off, I found this to be a completely absorbing narrative. Beyond the violence it elegantly explores the issues of gentrification, friendship, identity, and change. The film's great too, but you should definitely read the book first. Totally different visual styles going on. Great stuff. Check it out.

Simple Story, Amazing Art Work! 9. September 2007
Von W. Xia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
What a great book! The art work is like nothing I've seen...The story is simple but heart felt, and the characters easy to identify with. While I can tell that the translation took a lot away from the original ( I can read some Kanji characters, and I could see some of the left over original text was more incorporated into the artwork), it still kept to the mood and the atmosphere pretty well.... I read this book in 4 hours because it was so hard to put down.

books like this give manga a good name 11. September 2008
Von Tyler Hutchison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am pretty picky with the manga I read, because in general I think the stories are just crap... and the art is often times... well generic boring manga (at least most of the stuff that makes it to America). But Black and White is truly a gem. The line work in the art is so beautiful and contoured and slightly haphazard. It is hard to imagine a better style of art to tell this dark and childish story. It is whimsical and violence rolled into a big katamari of wonderful manga!!

So if you are the type who occasionally dabbles in manga and are on the fence about this, then: definitely check this one out.
And if you already love manga, well then also read this because it is awesome.
