This story won the 1983 Japan Science Fiction Grand Prix after being re-released into {{graphic novel}} form. Supposedly, GuillermoDelToro has the rights to make a film adaptation, but interest in the project has not surfaced since the late 1990s.

* EvenBetterSequel: Essentially. The loosely connected manga stories involving psychic powers by Otomo kept increasing in quality as time went on. First was a largely forgettable short story about the cops seen in this manga. That was followed by this, beautifully illustrated and written. Then came the classic Manga/{{Akira}}, revolving around the government's attempts to copy the powers seen in this story for their own ends.

** The inspiration behind the book was actually a newspaper article Otomo read about a rash of mysterious deaths at another apartment complex. He decided to combine it with the one he lived in and based some of the cast on his neighbors.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Old Cho's full first name is Chojiro - which is (kind of) a portmanteau of the name Jiro, and Chojin - the Japanese word for superhuman.
