Author's Comment

Good work! I'm Gotouge. I get to bring out volume 7! Thank you very much to everyone who supports me and everyone who helped me. Recently, I've been into fried dishes seasoned with miso. On weekends, I take whatever my eyes fall upon and fry it with miso. And how have you been? I suppose you have problems, but I'd be happy if, while you're reading this series, you forgot the real world and had an enjoyable time, if only for a little while.
