Funeral of Ooishi Matsuno



Grandpa really cried his heart out.

That was my first time seeing him cry so hard.

That is because your grandfather

really loved your grandmother.

Grandma really had a happy fulfilling life.

But Grandma had a hard time during the war,

Like her ex-husband dying as a Special Attack Force.



Wait a moment. That was my first time hearing that!


What do you mean by "really"?

He is my biological father.



Why are you even sleeping in till this time of the day?

Is that even right for a person of

your age to be doing that still?

Shut up! What do you want?

Remember the talk about Grandma's ex-husband?

Do you want to investigate that?


That talk that we had!

Mum said she is also curious about that.

She didn't come to me about that.

Why don't you do it instead.

What are you even saying you silly fool.

This is our real biological Grandpa

that we are talking about here.

Ain't you interested?

I am sorry,

But I am not buying that.

The next year will be the 60th

anniversary for the end of WWII

If we were to pursue this, maybe

we can even publish a book!

Are you listening to me?

I don't want to end my career with

just being a freelance writer.

Please help me!

So that is your aim!

You can go work something out on your own.

I am hanging up.

Wait! wait, wait, wait!

I will pay you for this.


Still the same I see, Grandpa.

You do have a lot of non-profitable cases.

In society, a lawyer is expected to be

a very profitable profession though.

Are you going to be one?

As expected.

After being rejected for 4 years

straight, I gotta re-think about it.

Like if I really suited to take the bar exam.

Well, my resolve is weak I supposed.

I thought I would be able to be like Grandpa...


I say Kentaro,

You are not here to ask about that right?

You are the one who said

"Grandpa might be against

it" thus you don't want

to investigate further.



I see.

I don't like to be investigating this in secret.


I want you to investigate this.


It is for your sake too.

Miyabe Kyuuzou.

Born in 1918, Tokyo.

Joined the Navy Air Service in 1934.

Died in the battle of Okinawa in 1945.

Yup. And he also never left a will.

There was barely any trace of his life.

He married Grandma in 1941, and Mum

was born in the following year.

But their marriage life was only 4 years,

And during that period he was

almost always on the battlefield.

He was 26 when he died.


He is the same age as you are now.

What's with that?

This is impossible.

When there is a gap of 60

years in the generation,

it became impossible

to read the writing.

So what's up with this?

Hurm? Ah, I tried finding

a few comrades online and

wrote to them if they know

who is Miyabe Kyuuzou.

And these are the replies.

Eh... that many?


Excuse me Hasegawa san, but do you know my grandfather?

Yes I do.

Well, we are trying to find out what

kind of a person our grandfather is.

He is the biggest coward in the Navy Air Service.


A person who views his life with utmost importance.

What does that mean?

In short.

He is obsessed about staying alive.

We, pilots, all gave our lives to the nation.

But this Miyabe Kyuuzou, he

is different from all of us.

Rather than winning, his guy's

only wish is to keep his own life.

Even when I lost my arm, his plane made

it back safely without a single scratch.

Not a single bullet pierced through it.

In those chaotic fights, that is impossible!

That guy did not carry through his mission.
