Barefoot Gen - Vol. 2: The Day After by Keiji Nakazawa Cartoonist Keiji Nakazawa was seven years old and living in Hiroshima in the early days of August 1945 when the city was destroyed by an atomic bomb dropped by the U.S.A.
 
Starting a few months before that event, the ten-volume saga shows life in Japan after years of war and privations.
