Destruction of Sweet Creation by Kenneth E. Fultz Jr. is a short novella based on the anime genre. The book revolves around two central characters: Hiro, a handsome, eighteen-year-old boy who is a loner, and Kanae, a child-like, immature seventeen-year old who is cursed. Hiro is secretive and introverted, takes life lightly, and does not hesitate to put his life in danger for the ideals that he believes in. Kanae, on the other hand, is a naive teenager who believes in fairy tales, and is cursed by her mother so that people who meet her think of her as a kid. Hiro and Kanae’s lives take a dramatic turn when she is attacked by a monster, and what follows after that as their lives change forever forms the plot of the book. We not only see them both grow as human beings, but we also come to understand and realize how one person can have such a profound impact on another person’s life.
Destruction of Sweet Creation also features many other people throughout the book, some of which are almost as central to the story as Hiro and Kanae. Kenneth E. Fultz Jr. has created some superb characters, and I especially loved the growth and maturity portrayed in the central characters as we witness their transformation from teenagers to young adults. This story contains elements of anime, fantasy, romance, action, and adventure. Kenneth E. Fultz Jr. maintains a conversational narrative throughout the book which lends a casual, light feel to it. This is definitely one of those feel-good, thoroughly enjoyable books for any age group that one can pick up and read any time and I certainly hope to see a graphic novel version of it.
