Tsuki no Sango

Tsuki no Sango
Kinoko Nasu

Tsuki no Sango (Coral of the Moon) is a short story by Kinoko Nasu, set approximately one thousand years in the future. Humanity has lost the will to survive, and the earth is largely abandoned. Only a few people remain, living on a small island with someone known as the Princess.

It was originally written to be performed as a live recital by Maaya Sakamoto. It has since been released in pamphlet form, and in hardback form with accompanying audiobook. This is the hardback version, with illustrations by Takashi Takeuchi and Chihiro Aikura.

This is the slipcase containing both the audio CD and the book.

The story is set in a bleak future, but the general theme is more of beauty than decay.Here are the audio CD and the book, on the left and right respectively.

First we'll take a look at the audio CDs. Above is the audio CD holders full spread.

The book itself is a small hardback. I really like the illustration on the cover.

That's about it. It's a small set, but quite nice.

If you'd like to see the original recital of the story, it's been uploaded onto Youtube. (ext link)
