Tanpopo #3 is the continuation of the saga of Tanpopo, the emotionless girl, and Kuro, a mysterious creature that guides her through the world and promises her she will feel emotion. “Devils and Foxes” and other tales from the collection “Strange Stories From a Chinese Studio” inspire Volume 3. Kuro’s efforts for Tanpopo to experience sadness intensify, and so too does his wickedness. An old woman, wary of the devil-boy, takes Tanpopo in, showing her kindness and affection. When the old woman dies by Tanpopo’s hand, Kuro’s plan will have come full circle, and Tanpopo, finally, weeps. Tanpopo must make a choice now - to continue her journey with Kuro or to plead for the old woman's life back. 6.5" x 9.75". 50 pages.
