This is really a troublesome job.


It must be hard task

Thanks for your help.

Sakisaka Beauty Parlour

- I think you'd cut this one here.

- Are you sure?

- I'm back.

- Welcome home.

If it isn't Nobu-chan.

What a fine lad you are now!

It's been a while.


Long time no see!

Your mom's gonna retire, right?

To put an end of this parlour,

I'm gonna miss it for sure.

I guess so.

I feel indebted to you.

We always receive your patronage.

It took courage

to close this parlour.

This parlour is your

father's precious shop.

I actually wanted to keep it running.

Well, it can't be helped.

Right, Nobu-chan?


Have you finished

tidying up your room?

I'm about to start.

Don't forget to take

your important things.

Older brother


Nobu! You just got

back from hospital?

Fairy Game - Sasaki Yuuji


You know where's

the last volume of Fairy Game?


What's that?

One of the books I read when

I was in High School.

It's a precious book to me.

How should I know?!

Why only the

last volume's missing?

I forget how this story ended.

Detail of Fairy Game's last volume

My impression regarding the conclusion of Fairy Game

"So long as love exists...

such thing is a lie."

For me personally,

it's unforgettable books.

At the beginning, it was an absurd

Science Fiction filled with action.

Also, at that time the protagonists

were all of the same age as I did.

A bunch of stupid yet easy-going boys.

They were normal schoolboys you can find these day.

In fact, it was an appetizer of the

writer's unique way in describing protagonists.

They were embarked on enemy territory,

trying to save the heroin...

who got kidnapped by

some mysterious organization.

Repetition of extremely mess

and absurd adventure.

In the end, they always

got happy ending.

That's right.

They got happy ending.

With that kind of feeling...

it never crossed in my mind that such story

which always started cheerfully and happily...

would ended in

a shocking way ever.

"I'm sure the end

will be good one!"

"It will be, one way or another."

But, at the end of it...

the protagonist couple

were separated for good.

"We both should run away somewhere"

the male protagonist proposed it.

"It will change nothing

wherever we run away to".

"Do you want to always running away?"

replied female protagonist.

And then, all classmates including the

male protagonists were back like ordinary days.

As if the female protagonist

were never there.

I was shocked.

If I have to put it bluntly, It was hurt.

After that, The Fairy Game I loved...

had become books

I couldn't possibly read again.

I felt it.

I was also shocked by the ending.

It also become

books I'd never forget.

It stuck deeply, like a thorn

rooted inside of me.

But, as I grew up...

"So long as love exists...

such thing is a lie."

I understand what

this line means.

People can't just live

by mincing words alone.

Sacrifice oneself for

love one is not possible.

I've moved on from "her".

Either way, I have to.

Even after ten years gone by...

I still can't see another

ending fits into than this one.

Whether I could've found the answer...

the author was published this book

especially to teenage readers.

Perhaps it was a lesson for readers.
