Tetsuya NAKASHIMA 中島哲也
The World Of Kanako
Best Of Nippon Connection ²
When the lovely Kanako disappears, her latently psychotic father goes on the search for her, discovering a cesspool of sex, violence and malice. Tetsuya NAKASHIMA treads into morally ambivalent waters, sparing neither his protagonists nor his audience. Enter the world of Kanako at your own risk and prepare for a cynical, amoral and excessively violent trip – with no return ticket.
