I think the style of the e-mail shows the dependence on the other person very much.

Shuntaro Tanikawa



The poet says he is worried about the writing style to include such a strange loneliness that they want to close the distance but not to want to get involved deeply. In writing a letter, people choose paper for each person and think out the text, but in mobile mail, since the tone is flattened, they can say what they always can't say. It's unwholesome. From “Story, The Scene Of Voice” (“Power Of Voice” written by Hayao Kawai et al.).
