Good evening. This is Ikeda.
After rereading Yu Yu Hakusho, the battle with Toguro's younger brother is over.
I like Sensui as a character, and the battles are exciting, so I'm looking forward to what's to come.
I'll finish reading it sometime next week, and I'm looking forward to going to the Togashi exhibition.
And the latest issue of ONE PIECE is released today.
I watched yesterday's commemorative video on ONE PIECE's official YouTube so much that I watched it while the company was open.
I think the use of the National Stadium is really amazing for a manga work.
I don't know what's going on right now, but you can't play high school soccer unless you make it to the semifinals.
I can't believe a character from a movie that was released in the summer will perform it live.
No, the momentum is too great.
This is a long story about manga, but I don't have any particular items to introduce today.
I may have written this before, but in ``Hanashi -diary-'' I am planning to update it not only by introducing items, but also in a diary-like format, so I will occasionally write monologues and small talk like this. I'm going to write about it.
I don't have any special deals, so I won't be posting updates on Instagram.
Among the books I read recently, I found Ango Sakaguchi's ``The Depravity Theory'' very interesting.
I didn't know about Ango Sakaguchi himself, but I saw a collection that featured Ango Sakaguchi as part of the theme at a certain brand exhibition, and it caught my attention, so I immediately bought it online.
I expected it to be fun, but it was more interesting than I expected.
I can't really describe it in words because it's like nothing I've ever read before, whether it's interesting or thought-provoking.
``The Depravity Theory'' is a collection of short stories, and ``The Depravity Theory'' itself is one of the works.
I won't review everything or give detailed impressions, but throughout I felt that Ango Sakaguchi was human, or rather, very human.
There are many seemingly negative contents such as criticism, negativity, and sarcasm.
At first, I had such a negative impression, but as I read more, I began to feel that it had a link to me and that it actually applied to most people.
I think there is also skill in expression and phrasing.
More than that, even as an amateur, I felt that Ango Sakaguchi's perspective, thoughts, and considerations capture the fundamentals of humanity.
Perhaps it was because I could feel the humanity in it, but somehow it made me feel at ease, and it made me think about doing it, so I wanted to read it again on a regular basis.
I hope that only one person has read this far, but if you are interested, please read it.
If you ask me to lend it to you, I will lend it to you.
I think I'll look for Ango Sakaguchi's work to read next.
See you then.
