BLURB

Perhaps it’s the taste that blurred my mind or it may have been the steam coming out of my noodle soup, quickly evaporating, leaving me less and less of it. Should I hurry or wait until the density reaches the expected level? To have an authentic soba, not like your college ramen, I have travelled across the world all the way to the middle of Japan, but it was more and more certain that it wasn’t the reality I was used to. I had a four-hour nap on the plane. Could it have been enough time to switch life to cold lines of black marker? Nothing was certain in this cel animation where the background was changed dozens of times between each time I blinked. The illusion wasn’t meant to be perfect. The perspective was rough-and-ready, the big-eyed faces were redundant, the steam was electric. When I reached Matsumo city in Nagano, the train station was vibrating. I went straight into the first tachikui noodle bar on a tiny corner. And I knew I had found the warmness of home, even though the world wasn’t completed. [Andras Gal]
