The strongest earthquake in Japanese history hit the Tohoku region on March 11, 2011, and the resulting tsunami killed over 15,000 people. But, for residents of Fukushima Prefecture, the nightmare... was just beginning. The world watched as the Fukushima Dai-ichi (Fukushima #1, or 1-F) nuclear plant, its safety equipment drowned by the tsunami, experienced a slow and catastrophic meltdown. Over the following years, the cleanup effort would be fraught with controversy, setbacks, and, most of all, danger for the workers who had to step inside the stricken plant, still bathed in radiation. One of those workers tells his story in Ichi-F. A singular insider's look at an event that destroyed a region and changed how the world sees nuclear power. This matter-of-fact depiction of the daily life of a nuclear cleanup worker is unique among disaster memoirs. 1-F began as an amateur submission to the Manga Open contest.
