This might get laughed off as a mere fairy tale.

As a fantasy that couldn't possibly happen in the real world.

the story of my mother's life.

The man she fell in love with...

was a werewolf.


My mother was a student at a national university in the outskirts of Tokyo.

She covered the tuition fees with a scholarship,

and raised money for her living expenses by taking on multiple part-time jobs.

Men highly esteemed for their wisdom

certainly do possess great knowledge about their crafts and other miscellaneous topics.

On a certain day in early summer,

He was wearing a t-shirt with a very loose collar,

didn't have a textbook on hand,

and was earnestly jotting down notes with all he had.

She said he looked completely different from the other students.

Please wait a second.

You'll be marked absent if you don't fill this out and turn it in.


I'm not a student here.

If you find me an eyesore, I won't show up anymore.

Who's that?


I don't care if you're a student or not,

but I think that lecture would be a bit hard to understand without a textbook.

Want to look over it together?


It'll be ready on Friday.

Thank you very much.

Thanks for waiting.

Oh, welcome.

This way.

The three plaintiffs in this case were Meletus the poet,

Anytus the politician,

and Lycon the orator.

Meletus was the representative,

but it is said that Anytus was the one pulling the strings.

What type of food do you like?

What kind of people have you fallen in love with up until now?

Why "Hana"?

Are you talking about my name?


I was born at a time when cosmos flowers were blooming in our backyard.

Not ones that we'd planted, but those that had grown naturally.

Looking at that gave my father the idea, or so he said.

I was given this name in the hope that I'd grow up to be someone whose smile never went out.

He told me to keep smiling through tough or painful times,

even if I had to force myself to do it,

because I'd probably be able to get through them if I did.

That's why, during my father's funeral, I had a smile on my face the entire time.

My relatives got really mad at me, though,

saying I was being "thoughtless."

being thoughtless.

You weren't.

That's a relief.

Even though each apartment is in the same complex, the people who live there are nothing alike.

There are rich homes,

poor homes,

homes with big families.

Ones with only a single resident.

Homes with babies.

Those with only senior citizens.

How nice it'd be to have a home.

I'd say "I'm home" when I got in,

take off my shoes, wash my hands and face,

and sink into my chair.

It'd be great.

I'd make a bookshelf.

And when it couldn't hold any more books, I'd just make another one.


I'd welcome you home, then.



There's something I need to tell you.

Go ahead. You can say anything.

The truth is...

I'll save it for tomorrow.



I'm sorry, Hana.

My bad.

I've never told anyone about this.

I was scared.

But I should've told you much earlier.

No, I should've shown you.

Shown me?

Close your eyes for a bit.

A bit longer.

Can I look yet?


What do I look like?

She found out that those stories about transforming at night during a full moon

and attacking people were all just myths.

"The world is full of things I don't know about,"

is what my mother thought at the time, apparently.


Never want to see me again?

You're trembling, though. Are you scared?

I'm not scared.

Because it's you.

My father was a descendant of the Japanese Wolf, considered to have gone extinct a hundred years ago.
