Having read Nijigahara Holograph straight through twice now, I can honestly say that it's one of the very best books I've read in a while and that I'll no doubt return many times to its disturbing meditations on human nature.

In both the themes it deals with and the way the narrative is wrapped around them, Inio Asano's beautiful existential horror is not an easy read. If you're the sort who doesn't do multiple reads of the same story, prefering instead to arrive at the conclusion with a thorough understanding of what has happened and all the answers laid out for you by the author, you may find yourself a bit perplexed and unsatisfied by this book. It possesses a level of complexity and depth that rewards multiple readings and I suspect it's the sort of book that will never fail to reveal previously unnoticed subtleties in the art and text, regardless of how many times its mysteries are plundered.

It's not easy to adequately convey what Nijigahara Holograph is about. It's certainly not light reading and explores some very dark and disturbing corners of human existence. The fractured narrative moves between different time zones and revolves around a group of people who we meet both as school children and as young adults. We first encounter them as classmates, whispering rumours of a terrible creature that lurks in a tunnel behind the school and which may bring about the end of the world. To appease the creature, they decide to offer a sacrifice, the unfortunate Arie Kimura, whom they push down a well that leads into the Nijigahara tunnel, and from here, we are drawn into a dark world where the past, present and future are a continuing nightmare from which the characters cannot wake.

Wow! 22 April 2014
By Chelsea - Published on Amazon.com

I really really liked Nijigahara Holograph. The past and present go together nicely and all of the characters have something to do with one another in some way. It's intriguing and slightly disturbing. The story is mysterious in the fact that Asano doesn't clearly state how the ending should be interpreted; it's up to the reader to connect the dots and come up with the ending. All in all, a great short story to read.

A wonderful read 12 Sept. 2014
By Andres - Published on Amazon.com

A darker story from the mind of Inio Asano, this tale takes a serious role of investigating a town and an ongoing series of murders, and just how it connects to past events to interweave into an intricate and detailing story. Beautifully compiled in this full-collection hardcover, this story keeps you grossly engaged with it's intriguing mystery and, as per usual of the producer, highly-developed characters that each have a life of their own that is explored throughout the story. Although a bit more complex, it's worth the re-reading if you feel the need to revisit events to grasp the entirety of the situation, and the art is quite lovely, as is to be expected..

Another Fantastic Read by Asano 16 April 2014
By Matthew J Piccarreto - Published on Amazon.com

Another great read by Asano. I am a fan of his art and storytelling and this was a very good addition to my collection. I read it and immediately went back and read it again. Fantagraphics also did a good job. It is a larger format to really showcase the art with a nice hardcover. Well worth the money.

Five Stars for Nijigahara Holograph 3 Jan. 2015
By Lyon - Published on Amazon.com

Great story by Inio Asano. This isn't a book for young kids - it's very dark take on life. If you enjoyed Solanin and What a Wonderful World (series), you'll enjoy this as well. Okay, well, maybe not as good as Solanin but I am definitely glad I read this book.

Asano's books are like reading his finger prints. The hard cover book itself is well put together - as usual, my only complaint is that there is no color to accompany the fine illustrations...but that tends to be the norm for this genre.
pleasantly suprised 27 May 2014

I didnt realize the author when I bought it - inio asano is a top notch author that does 'slice of life' mixed with other genres...if u liked Solanin this one is good too!
