Drawing Our "New Normal"

In 2020, an annual manga comic championship for high schoolers goes online for the first time due to COVID-19. The virtual format disappoints students who are eager to meet their peers from around Japan. There are other challenges. The leader at one school's manga club struggles to make new members feel like part of the team. And a student who faced bullying in the past wrestles with self-doubt and anxiety. Yet as they tackle the contest's theme -- life's "new normal" -- the young artists are pushed to reflect, and to grow in new ways.
