I drew the chapter while listening to Tatsuya Ishii’s “River.” I love that song.

I’m currently addicted to konnyaku yam cakes! They’re great in cold noodle dishes and udon. Miso dengaku is the best.

I’ve realized that most of the things I thought made me special were really just about me being young.

Elusive Samurai

When I go to buy sneakers, they almost always end up being Nikes. People with wide feet don’t have many options.

Lately I like the smell of coffee, Garigari-kun popsicles, and dekopon oranges.

It’s started getting hot, so I’ve been downing a bunch of iced coffees and then getting stomachaches.

I’ve started not caring about what other people think and just liking what I like. It feels really good.

I’m in Jump with a friend from my student days. Amazing! Congrats, Hidaken!

I’m putting this off, but I hope to be able to throw a slider before I die.

I’m rewatching The Simpsons. Homer’s voice always makes me laugh.
