Mister, remember how you hugged me in the end.
Over and over until I realized, why you were hugging me.
Whinging, I know I tried to disentangle myself from the tight clutch of your embrace, and I'm sorry for that.
But I did, finally, I took it all in.
A lifetime's worth of courage and an unguarded salty love, mustered with all your might, unabashed.
— Chiba Masato, afterword For Mister.
