About Land

Land is a Japanese seinen, horror manga written by Yamashita Kazumi. It won the Osamu Tezuka Grand Award in 2021.

In a particular village, death claims those who reach the age of 50. After someone becomes 50 years old, they are carried to the other side of the mountain, from where they never return.

The village is governed by officials who wear animal skin, and four Gods watch over the villagers. Why is there such a custom? Why do humans have to be sacrificed to please the Gods?
