Sunny translated by Michael Arias

Taiyō Matsumoto's


translated/adapted to English by Michael Arias

What is Sunny? Sunny is a car. Sunny is a car you take on a drive with your mind. It takes you to the place of your dreams. It is the story of beating the odds, in the ways that count.

Sunny is the masterwork from Eisner Award-winner Taiyō Matsumoto, one of Japan’s most innovative and acclaimed manga artists. A story of childhood longing and dreams as only Taiyō Matsumoto could tell it.

Taiyō Matsumoto is best known to English-reading audiences as the creator of Tekkonkinkreet, which in 2006 was made into an animated feature film directed by Michael Arias. In 2007, Matsumoto was awarded a Japan Media Arts Festival Award for Excellence, and in 2008, he won an Eisner Award for the English publication of Tekkonkinkreet.
