"Doing what you like is really hard, but... by pursuing it, you will discover a different side of yourself. You will meet certain new people through this. If you keep doing what you want to do, you will get some chances. So never give up. Keep doing what you like!" - Minori, shiro-nuri artist. “People might disagree about whether [a murderer] should have been executed. But I think everybody would agree that the best possible version … would be a story where no murder ever occurs.” — David R. Dow.
