Director's note

When we are child, the world is limited, and small. The small problem for adult are huge for them. It’s strange but all the adult, including me, easily can forget these thing. This film pays homages to my childhood memories. I was crazy about drawing Manga like Mie, my biggest fear was to make new friends in new fiscal year. My parents were both busy with managing a local old business hotel in Naha, but they never forced me to go to a private tutoring school like other kids, so I had a lot of free time to spend with Manga or my friends, everyday was filled with full of discovery. Hope people can see the joy of childhood in the movie.
