😱nyankokawaigari sensei, could you tell us your profile, specialties, hobbies, etc.?
Thank you for your interest in my work. I'm the author, nyankokawaigari.
I'm a 26-year-old woman, and I modeled this story after a situation I was in when I was 24 and my friends around me.
My pseudonym, nyankokawaigari, means "to adore (kawagari) a cat (nyanko)" . Yes! I love cats very much, and I live with them.
I also draw cat comics now.
😱We would like to know about the story behind the creation of Epigonen, the production diary, and your feelings about it!
Epigonen is based on real people and sceneries. The setting is Tokyo, Japan, and it is during the rainy season.
The rainy season is a unique season in East Asia, between spring and summer.
It rains every day and is very hot and humid. The air becomes hot and heavy.
This story is also very hot and heavy.
In the story, there are several quotations from Japanese writers of the Meiji era. The Meiji era was about 100 to 150 years ago, right after the demise of the samurai and ninja. I thought it was interesting that the sensibilities of people from such a long time ago could be understood by us today, so I quoted them.
😱nyankokawaigari sensei's message to overseas readers!
Thank you very much for reading this far!
In this piece, I portrayed the detailed emotional changes of a woman. I also hope you enjoy the depictions of the scenery and the seasons.
In the last four pages, the story takes a big turn. What happens in the last four pages?…
Well, you'll just have to wait until you read it!
