I want to get a good score someday. But after all, it is zero.

Yoshikazu Yamagata

 

 

Some people got 68 points, and some people got 12 points, but I always got zero. I did a bad thing with low-ranking friends, and I had a broken heart too. I wrote graffiti on the back of an exam paper. I also had a good time that passed soon. So I thought, “What can I become?” I looked like paper scraps, but after folding several times, I was able to become a paper airplane. Then I flew to the outside world. From a picture book written by the fashion designer, “I Got Zero.”
