N - Necessity
Excerpt from The Hyde, chapter titled “Necessity”, page 132. １．The Apple A ring that was inspired by the forbidden fruit. The stone used is my birthstone, a garnet. It’s rare to have one as large as this but since I didn’t really need it to be so thick, I actually had it shaved down much thinner, though it’s a waste [of the stone]. (laughs) As the design and direction [of production] of the ring...

F - Family
Excerpt from The Hyde, chapter titled “Family”, page 40. First and second paragraph. Hyde explains why he’s kept us in the dark about his family. As for my family, I never planned to talk about them (laugh). And I don’t plan to in future either. So, I thought I would talk about “why I have no intention of talking [about them]” in this section. When I read other people’s...

Door 扉 (with ENGLISH translation) →
Excerpt from The Hyde, page 14. 扉 振り向いたなら いつでもそこにある記憶の扉 If I turn around, as always the door of memories is there そっと開けば映像の洪水に僕はさらわれて Upon gently opening it, a flood of images carries me away まるでしんだ魚みたいに無抵抗のまま Just as if I were a dead fish offering no resistance 記憶の海を漂ってしまうだろう・・・ Floating away on this sea of memories… そこで繰り返される幾つもの短編映画 And then countless scenes* repeat...
