I will protect you...



Ah, Suzuki, right?

Yeah, I'm Suzuki.

Hideo Suzuki

He's the "Hero" Hideo.

This time is the action genre, huh.

Ah, well.

It can be a manga that introduces real guns.

It was science fiction last time, right?

No, the one before that.

No, no matter what, the protagonist...

The protagonist

How should I put it...


He's too normal, you know?

Why is it always like this?

Ah, Korori sensei!

I'm sorry to have you come all the way here.

It's okay. I'm just passing by.


Didn't you two debut in the same year?

During the Newcomer's Awards.


It's Suzuki.

Right! Suzuki!!!

How nostalgic! The Newcomer's Awards from 15 years ago!

Where are you drawing right now?

I'm taking a break right now.

Break? Isn't this your name though?

Sensei, we'll serve you over there.

We'll have a drink next time and talk about manga, okay?

Do contact me.

Thank you.

This way please.

Umm, about this...

Ah, try harder next time.

This way, sensei.

Oh, sensei, your watch's so cool!

It's so I can pay less tax.

As I thought, Rolex is great, huh.

Wait a minute!

If we sell this, we can at least pay the rent!

It's dangerous, Tekko!

That would be going against the Gun Control Law.

Tekko, wait!

Tekko, next time! I'll try harder next time!

Calm down. Calm down.

You're annoying! Shut up!

Calm down!

Stop it!

Tekko, stop it!

Ah! That's...

Non-flammable garbage.

Wait, wait! Wait a minute! Tekko!

How long... How long do you want me to wait?

10 years? 20 years? 30 years?

Hideo, what you seek isn't a dream anymore!

It's a delusion!

Only a small, special group of people can achieve success.

Hideo, you're normal! You're a very normal person!

Nothing can be accomplished like this.

Not even until death!

I... I can't do this anymore.
