you very much."

June 2011 to June 2018. Though it was an immature and unskillful work, I am proud of the fact that

I was able to draw until the end."

end." When it actually ended, as I expected, I am having a felling that something falls out all of sudden."


"I caused so many troubles to the editorial department and the printing office until the very end. I really

appreciate for them for accepting so many excessive requests from me. I was able to try many things

and they have contributed greatly to improve the person I am."

toward the people who have supported the series. I really appreciate for your support until now. I hope

to see you again somewhere. Well then, adieu."
