BLURB

Amid the twilight, the glow of hundreds of neon signs advertising various love motels, nightclubs, and hostess bars, he casually strolled down the street. There was something alluring about all these tall buildings. Was this his fourth time here? Smoke and debris swirled in his memory. No, not this time. He had changed. He eyed his government issued residence permit… Shinjuku, Kabukichō, 1-19-1. He thought they’d arrest him for sure, but the folks in the bureau had welcomed him with open arms.
Keep an eye out for him if you’re ever in the area, not that you’ll have to look too hard for 60-meter tall gorilla-whale-like-monster. And you thought your neighbor’s were loud… [Mychaelangelo Norkus]
