In this final volume of No Longer Human, Yozo has been lulled into a sense of comfort with his new life and young wife. All that he holds dear is completely destroyed when he finds out that the person he loves is even potentially worse off than he. After his wife is sexually assualted by a business acquaintence, Yozo can no longer invision her as the beautiful pure woman that tamed his soul many months before. Now his wife is little more than a doll for charming men, and instead of confronting her or even devising a threat for divorse, Yozo simply moves on. But moving forward towards nothingness is not progess. It can only be seen as the end. From here on out Yozo's life is sub-human and when comic artist Usamaru Furuya realizes that, he is glad he has the opportunity to work and live his life as he pleases (even with the pressures of work constantly lurking).
Usamaru Furuya was born in Tokyo, Japan on January 25th, 1968. A former member of the Osamu Tezuka Manga Correspondence Program, Furuya began to embrace subculture and the undergroud art scene at an early age. He was an early participant in the Tokyo version of the Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol creating puppets and set designs for their elaborate performances. After graduating from university, Usamaru turned his attention to the world of comics. His early projects combined the surreal with extremely modern political commentary winning him critical acclaim worldwide for his juxtapositions of Tokyo youth and their suit wearing salaryman counterparts. Since his debut in 1994, Furuya has gone to draw 16 titles for Japan's leading comics publishers Shogakukan and Shueisha (publishers of Shonen Jump).
