Thanks for the update, and doses of inspiration.

Gaaaaaawd, 12 chapters in and it is sooooo boring. Why did that get an award? Probably because it seems to be sophisticated and „arthouse“-pseudo-intellectual.
The characters are bland, there are exactly zero challenges for the MC, everyone supports him. Boring.
Only the artwork is good. Reminds me of Urasawa. But worse.

I can't find chapters after 16.5... what a shame, so far it's a great manga.

Caught me by surprise a bit later since it was told like an autobiography or an interview with people who knew him. Still a nice read and premise about jazz and stuff.
