The Drops of God

Shizuku Kanzaki is summoned home one day to discover that his estranged father, a famous wine critic with a cellar that's the stuff of legend, has died. But he soon finds that claiming his inheritance will not be so simple as signing on a line: His father has devised an elaborate game in which he must identify and describe 13 top wines around the world—against a competitor, a brash young wine virtuoso the elder Kanzaki adopted. Shizuku works at a beer company.

So begins the 44-volume saga Kami no Shizuku, written by sister-brother team Yuko and Shin Kibayashi (under the nom de plume Tadashi Agi) and illustrated by Shu Okimoto, the unexpected smash-hit manga series that enraptured Japanese readers for its 10-year run, from 2004 to 2014. Today, Kodansha Comics and Amazon digital comics platform ComiXology have announced that a full English translation is coming, under the title The Drops of God, with a re-edited translation of the first eight volumes plus three previously untranslated ones just released.

Graphic novels are growing in popularity, and "we're also riding a crest in gourmet food publishing," explained Kodansha USA CEO Alvin Lu to Unfiltered. "So the timing was definitely right to reintroduce it and release it in full at this moment."
