A Letter To Yoshizawa-kun

Dear Yoshizawa-kun,

Ogenki desu ka? Without coming across as overly sympathetic, I just want to say that living a life in your shoes is without a doubt an ongoing adventure which commands a lot more than basic common sense. Honestly, I wouldn't have an issue with a face like yours. Sure, it does cause much unnecessary misunderstandings and such, but on a lighter note it is rather common these days in the world of manga. In other words, there has to be something appealing about that inflexibility which charms the socks off worshippers or simply another onlooker. While I understand the inconvenience that has plagued you for most of your life, I believe that be accepting of oneself stretches far beyond anything else.

Why do I say that? If you haven't noticed already, you have pretty effortlessly found a best friend in the class delinquent Souma. Yeah, Souma probably remains the one and only person who is able to see past your expressionless face and interacts with you depending on the circumstances. Well, even though the initial bits of your friendship were a little spicy. I can't imagine the consequences of having Tabasco seasoning smeared onto my face. But I have to say that the supposed impact is completely lost on you, no matter how painful the notion is. At least to the rest of us, it certainly seems that way. Thankfully, Souma can see through what we can't. The contrast however is what makes the irony wickledly hilarious.

The two of you make a splendid pair. I mean that in a good way despite the awfully timely backlashes which have somewhat branded you and Souma as the perfect combination for delinquency. I'm sure that the girl who you had tried to help along the hallway would have had been treated for trauma. But it isn't your fault, you hear? You were merely trying all that you possibly could. Souma may not be much of a conviction, but as a reader I would so vouch for your efforts. In fact, I wish that we were friends as well. I would love to hang out with you and Souma after school. Later, you would also find new friends in other people. I feel really happy for you.

Your creator has a really cute pseudonym: 310. I know that I shouldn't snicker at it, but frankly I wasn't expecting those numbers to be a person's name. Initially, I thought that 310 was the classroom number! What an amazing achievement your creator has unlocked. To have one's web manga picked up for a tankoubon is simply out of this world, considering how competitive the circle can be and such. I understand that the first volume was published last December. That is pretty recent. I saw the tankoubon while browsing around in Books Kinokuniya some time ago. Hmm. Do I hear the little voices in my head or something?

I'm glad that I have stumbled upon your story. Honestly, I'm a sucker for stuff like this. You know what? I think that I shouldn't have thought twice about buying the tankoubon. Even though I have been able to appreciate quite extensively your adventures through fan scanlations, I know that there is still something quite lacking. Hmm. Okay, I have decided. Thank you, Yoshizawa-kun! You have my admiration and respect in every way. I look forward to more exciting chapters to come. Meanwhile, stay cheerful! Not that I would be able to see it. Ogenki de.

Eccentrically Yours.
