ACANe from “Zutto Mayonaka de Iinoni.”
I love the fact that even in the midst of the sweat, where there is no room for raising a flag, I can actually sympathize with the true meaning of a single frame.
Even if we can’t all sympathize with it, it gives us a sense of superiority in our own unique way. It’s also a good reference book for songwriting about emotions. Boom!
In addition to the world depicted, it is as if another phantom forms an image in my brain. What a mysterious work.
