The silly and asinine daily lives of high school boys thoughtfully portrayed. It’s a detailed view of boys who go to a school that combines junior high and high school – a fleeting surreal page of youth. When you read, “I’m crazy, about you,” the slackness of the main characters comes through in a fresh and youthful way and makes us nostalgic for the moratorium of school life when we didn’t think about anything. “It feels good...to have so much free time that we can do useless things.” As bystanders, it’s fun for us to peer into the exchanges between the boys and their friends. Central to this work are Hayashi and Nikaido.
