Land

"In this village, death inevitably takes those who have reached 50 years of age."

By custom, all villagers who have passed the age of 50 are bound and taken to The Netherworld on the other side of the mountain. Officials clad in beast skins manage the village, "The Living World," whose people are watched over by gods. Meanwhile, the People of the Mountain remain shrouded in mystery. Anzu, who sacrificed the older of twin girls to the mountain, is torn between hope and despair. Land is a story that reflects Yamashita Kazumi's unease for the nation of Japan.

Note: Nominated to the 25th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize.
