Tanpopo is a mysterious young girl, superhumanly intelligent and inhumanly emotionless, who embarks on a journey to experience emotion. With only the Faustian devil, Kuro, to guide her she must enter the world of humanity and discover what it means to feel. Tanpopo is inspired and narrated by passages from classic literature and poetry.The overall story arc is based on Faust, by German author Goethe, but each volume is narrated by a different classic - poem or prose – from around the world.Tanpopo is not an illustrated poem nor is it a reinterpretation of literature. It is a unique visual and literary experience that combines a rare, open storytelling format with oriental aesthetics and character development, while bringing long lost or little known classic literature to today's audience – both young and mature.
