Summary
The residents of a quiet Japanese neighborhood have slowly come to realize that inauspicious, paranormal forces are at play in the most unlikely of places: the local playground. Two friends, a young boy and girl, resolve to exorcise the evil that inhabit it, including a snaggle-toothed monster.In Animus, a beautiful but spooky young adult graphic novel of everyday hauntings, Antoine Revoy delivers an eerie tale inspired by the Japanese and French comics of his childhood.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When another child goes missing, superintendent Koyasu can't help but be reminded of an old case. Could a copycat be on the loose? Or is there something stranger going on? Meanwhile, in Kyoto, two children, Hisao and Sayuri, encounter a supernatural being named Toothless in a playground, and they become curious about where Toothless has come from and how he is connected to the playground. As they creep closer to solving the mystery of Toothless, the two become entangled in something much larger and more sinister than they could have imagined. Revoy is a talented illustrator and author, and it shows in this particular work, even as the narrative itself becomes (at times) slightly convoluted. The stark pencil-and-ink artwork takes full advantage of shadow and black, nighttime backgrounds to accentuate dark versus light, mirroring the tensions between good and evil in the overarching narrative. The child protagonists are captivating, and they will entice young readers eager to unravel the mysteries of the playground's supernatural tendencies.--Bittner, Rob Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Children are disappearing in Kyoto, and the police are confounded about what to do about it. Sayuri and her friend Hisao hang out in a park, where they encounter "Toothless," a ghost boy who is waiting for someone to find his body. He introduces them to the mystical features of the park, such as swings that allow them to enter people's dreams and a slide that ages them up or down, depending on which direction they go. Together, they work to find out what has happened to the missing children and to Toothless's body. Revoy's otherworldly adventure moves quickly, but his succinct storytelling keeps readers on track with essential details. Both the contemporary and historical elements of the story's setting come to life in the manga-style art. Revoy makes effective use of thin outlines, cross-hatching, and dramatic, blacked-out backgrounds to create a spooky atmosphere for this mysterious, macabre tale. Ages 14-up.
