Ohikkoshi by Hiroaki Samura( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These stories are told with the same bold, kinetic art style and brilliantly paced storytelling that Samura's Blade of the Immortal epic is famous for.

This romantic comedy is a "Japanese art school confidential" packed with absurd humor, obscure death metal references, and some expertly placed, dramatic revelations
