A set of stories from author Hiroaki Samura. The main offering, "Ohikkoshi," follows the turbulent paths of several twenty-something art students as they fall in love, fall in lust, play in rock bands, ride motorbikes, eat, sleep (together), and try to avoid making life decisions while drunk.
In "Luncheon of Tears Diary," Natsumi Funabashi, a virgin, is an aspiring manga creator on a quest for love and a fulfilling career. Along the way, she has to cope with overzealous men, gang warfare, a mahjong addiction, and a lascivious manga editor.
This collection is rounded off with Samura's "Kyoto Super Barhopping Journal: Bloodbath at Midorogaike," an autobiographical travel piece.
Story and art by Hiroaki Samura.
