Unico is one of the cutest unicorn manga charactor, written by Osamu Tezuka.
His heartwarming, pure kindness and cheerful but really pain and sad stories were born in 1976, almost 40 years ago.
The manga is still beloved because of its lovely art and stories.

Kyoko Okazaki is a manga artist who made huge impact in 1980s-90s.
Her manga books are not suit for small children, but for late teens or grown-ups.

She drew poetic and realistic and painful stories with cute and sexy characters, it’s not as like ordinary happy-ending lovely girls’ manga books.
She was forced to stopped her career since 1996, a sudden traffic accident.

I love some of these, especially beautiful cutting-glass watch, “Exceed Eco-Drive Collection Saphir”. It’s almost looks like as a bangle with a shining big precious stone. And more, no need to ready batteries because of the technology of Eco-Drive.

LIGHT is TIME

I like latest kii series too, but I do hope they would re-product the Collection Saphir in the near future.
