Why does this novel seem like it's going to have some sort of magic realism? XD Omedetou Shige! As usual I cannot read your book, but will definitely purchase it regardless :)

It's the story of a genius kid actor who lost his heart, thanks to a wizard-like homeless man and a friendly drag queen met in Miyashita Park he will find a brand new meaning to the word "family".
It seems to be a very Interesting story.

I've been wondering if there would be a new book this year since Shige has mentioned wanting his Shibuya saga to be a trilogy. That and he's always announced his books at the beginning of the past 2 years.

This story seems a bit more fantasy based than his previous works. However, they all overlap in that someone from the story is from the ent industry. Looking forward to it!!

Omedetou Elite Shige Sensei! hehe
