With his trusty narrator Rat Man, Mizuki brings history into the realm of the personal, making it palatable, and indeed compelling, for young audiences as well as more mature readers. As he describes the militarization that leads up to World War II, Mizuki's stance toward war is thoughtful and often downright critical his portrayal of the Nanjing Massacre clearly paints the incident (a disputed topic within Japan) as an atrocity.
