    • Story
      In the early 1970s, Sin-ichi Abe, manga artist, and his girlfriend Miyoko, were living together in Asagaya. One of Abe’s major works, Miyoko Asagaya Kibun, inspired by Miyoko and featured in the comic magazine “GARO”, describes this most beautiful time for them in their youth. Abe’s world sensibly renders the mood of young people at that time. However, with the method of creation based on his own life, he comes up against a blank wall. He gradually loses his sanity to frustration and despair. In the end, Miyoko comes to the conclusion "if we, just the two of us, live happily, it is good… or is it?” This is a story of fateful lovers
