Hello, it’s Nagaoka Makiko. Thank you very much for picking up the second volume also!
It’s summer! It’s the sea! I know it’s a little early in the year for the publication of this book, but I hope you can get a taste of summer a little (?) ahead of time.
I wrote the second volume with the theme “Emo&Ero” in my mind (Please read in the rhythm of R&B). Setting aside how it was in the real world, I’d be happy if you could think that you had something like this in your youth. Aah, how nostalgic… I also have such summer memories… not. It’s because I was in an all-girls school.
The scene with maria at the park, personally, I find it emo. A girl’s feelings that is happy to see the person she loves even though she knows what is going to happen.
There are episodes that are based on real life experiences.
Until about ten years ago, I was working part-time as a tutor at a cram school, teaching mainly English to high school students, and there’s a student who said “I’m going to tell Rie“. It’s a real real misunderstanding answer that was quite desperate, interesting, and impressionable. I wonder what “Tell Rie” meant.
Anyway, summer is emo, isn’t it. It’s also ero, isn’t it.
Now that going to festivals, fireworks, and swimming in the sea have become more difficult, has only grown stronger.
Again, I can’t thank the illustrator, magako-sama, enough for the outrageously wonderful illustrations…! Thank you very much for illustrating even the small details in the text! (Dear readers, please look at Runa’s nails on the cover~!)
Thank you again, Matsubayashi-sama, for all your help! Thanks to your schedule management and various other things, I can concentrate on my work with peace of mind. I want to keep this momentum going and do my best! Please let me do my best!
Finally, I’d like to express my sincere attitude to all dear readers who have supported me since the first volume and read the second volume.
I sincerely, sincerely wish that we could meet again…!
