If you want to dip your toe into the vast pool of Manga out there, then a good place to start is Saturn Apartments. Many years in the future, Mitsu has just joined the window’s washers guild, which takes care of cleaning the multilevel glass ring 35 kilometers above the earth that everyone now lives in. Everyone lives in this glass enclosed world because Earth has been deemed environmentally protected. This new world status isn’t measured by how big your house is, it’s how high up in the ring structure your apartment is located. Now Mitsu has taken over the window washing position after his father tragically died on the job under questionable circumstances. As he begins his new job, Mitsu gains a new view of his world, which begins to unlock secrets not just in his life, but in others’ too.
