Can he win the race of love and more? Racers, start your engines...
As a Japanese person, I'm not good at speaking English. When I was a student, just like Toshi in this story, people laughed at my pronunciation. (In Japan, you're expected to pronounce English words in a very Japanese way, and they'll find it weird if you pronounce it as an English speaker would.)
This story came to be from such an experience. I was nervous if the theme of this story might be a little hard to empathize with if you aren't Japanese, but the staff at Irodori Comics did a fantastic job of localizing and getting the feel of the story. The story refers to Ru Paul's Drag Race. I love that series. I hope you enjoy love blossom between the positive-minded Toshi and the calm and serious Ken.
