Asano's Early Work
'What A Wonderful World' is not only Asano's first short story collection, but first manga work overall. Fortunately, this in no way implies that this series is inferior to his later work. During this time he was still honing his craft, but it still shines through. Asano presents before us a brilliant collection of short stories, each subtly interconnected in minor ways that accurately embody everyday life, how it connects us, and how sometimes we're just background characters in other people's stories. A precursor to Asano's literary genius, 'What A Wonderful World' is definitely worth the read.
