from Shintaro Kago introduction:
"This is a story about a world that splits into billions of endless worlds, just like the classic science fiction trope "parallel worlds".
Although tales of parallel worlds have been written in many media (novels, movies, comics, etc.) in the past, I think this story, “the Princess of the Never-ending Castle," presents a new way to demonstrate parallel worlds, which I have never seen before.
At the same time, this graphic novel also includes experiments in the language of comics. Please enjoy this work, which features in places several challenging innovations."
