Isoganakutemo yoikotowo (Take your time)
A compilation of autobiographical comics drawn daily from 2009 to 2021. Topics include a slow-eating friend from school, meals prepared by his mom who constantly says she is busy, a chat with his grandma who forgot about him, his first date at a zoo, a scene viewed a year after marriage, and his daughter’s world where everything is fresh. Memories from the past, scenes of the present, and hopes for the future coexist in this work.
