Shocked Teenagers

Ishinomaki is a city famous in the Manga world for hosting the Manga Island, Manga Road and the Ishinomori Manga Museum, in honor to Shotaro Ishinomori, who held the Guinness World Record for most comics published by one author, totaling over 128,000 pages. The city is filled of colorful statues of manga figures as opposed to the regular statues of war heroes you see in other cities. There is even one at the entrance of City Hall. This beautiful place once is now destroyed.
