Good evening, Watari Wataru here.
It’s fall already! A fall for readers, a fall for sports, a fall for food, a fall for art, a fall for labor, a fall for commuting, a fall for corporate slaves, and so forth, but how is everyone spending their fall? I’m always working regardless of the seasons and as a matter of fact, I’d love it if the New Year’s would come by already!
But the long nights of fall are when you can make smooth progress as a reader and writer. It’s quiet, it’s cool, and the night is long… It’s a season where you’re able to make the most of your time alone. That being said, winter isn’t all that much different, but there are things you can only see during that period of time as well.
Things like “Why am I working so hard for these painful memories” or “The night’s long but my actual working hours don’t change nor am I getting more sleep”… or stuff like that. Of course, it’s not all just negative things, but also good and happy things, but it’s often that you see into a gloomy future when you look outside the window into the darkness. Although, it’s by looking into that darkness that you end up seeing a light.
In that time, you might end up reciting a monologue to someone, perhaps everyone.
In the middle of the never-ending winter night, you might end up finally discovering an answer on the path where the strong cold, headwind blows by. Putting aside whether his answer and her doubt is wrong or not… When you meet someone similar, is it a feeling of affinity that you hold, or is it a feeling of how completely different you two are? If you take a step forward, gain answers and questions, then, what choice will he make?
With that feeling, this was “Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come ha Machigatteiru.” Volume 10.
Appreciation as follows:
To God Ponkan8. Whoopie! It’s the malicious older sister, Haruno-chan on the cover! I’m also enjoying SHIROBAKO every week, too! Wonderful! Thank you very much.
To Head Editor Hoshino-sama. Heh, no worries, next time will be a piece of cake, gahaha! I’ve been saying that for a while now… I apologize profusely every time… Thank you very much… heh, no worries, next will be a piece of cake, gahahaha!
To every single gentleman and lady of Mediamix, I’ve been a huge bother to you with my selfishness. I’m anticipating “Oregairu” to see an increase in new charms. Thank you very much.
Further, I had the fortune of using the books “No Longer Human” and “Run, Melos!” (Author: Dazai Ozamu of Shinchosha Bunko Publications).
To my readers, we’re finally at the final stage of this story and although we’re wandering off course like always, we’re steadily making progress towards the goal. I’ll be extremely happy to have your support until the very end. Thank you very much.
Now then, with my afterword space running low, I’ll be resting my pen here.
On a certain day of October, as I drink my waaaaarm “Yeah, when it gets cold, you gotta drink this!” MAX COFFEE,
