9Comic Book - 2014
Orphaned after her parents were killed by Lynxes, Monoko is the only tanuki (raccoon dog) in her village without a family, until she finds a human baby in a river. Considering that Animal Land is a world inhabited solely by animals, this human child is a sheer mystery. The baby is Monoko's only chance at having a family and she is determined to raise the human child as her own. Animal Land is the perfect title for anyone looking for something a little different in their manga diets.
