Have you picked up Loups-Garous yet? Natsuhiko Kyogoku’s futuristic mystery is quite a trip—I’ve described it as a 500-page haiku. We’re not alone in admiring it—The girls are headed to anime this summer; it’ll open in theaters in Japan on August 28th, 2010. If you want a leg up on the plot, what better place to go than the original novel, handily and happily translated into English?
I can’t think of any.
