Summary :

This collection is an amalgamation of work reflecting Hiroki Endo's philosophy and his outstanding ability to draw and tell stories.

Volume 1:

"Boys Don't Cry" - This one-shot talks about sexuality issues.

"The Crows, the Girl and the Yakuza" - A long, heavily philosophical piece about a homeless girl who lives among the crows in an empty warehouse and a wounded yakuza who hides from his enemies with her. 86 pages long.

"Because You're Definitely a Cute Girl" - This short story is about a girl who is into Jungian psychology, and she regrets the loss of her mother and elder sister as well as her invalid grandfather.

"For Those of Us Who Don't Believe in God" - A story about a group of college students putting on a play about a serial murderer in prison who holds a discussion with the sister of one of his victims. This story is heavy on philosophy and existential dialogue interspersed with bits of humor (Endo's typical short-story formula). This is a long story, weighing in at about 90 pages.

Volume 2:

"Hang" - A young girl asks her boyfriend to "take her to the end of the world." Here especially are overtones of EDEN--reality hangs on a silken thread.

"Highschool- Girls 2000" - This is about Master Endo himself. He shares his midlife-crisis at 30 with us, and the situations in an artist's life back at the beginning of his mangaka career...

"Platform" (Parts 1 & 2) - The two-parter Platform tells of Takaguki, son of a powerful yakuza clan, who hates nothing more than his father's overwhelming power and his heritage...
