Life begins at 40…whether you're ready for it or not
Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for T+ audiences. Throughout his heretofore unimpressive existence, Shizuo Oguro adopted several different—yet all equally mediocre—personas: phenomenally unintimidating street punk, materialistic yet talentless folk musician, nondescript office worker, and forty-something burger joint employee. Can Shizuo, a man with an unblemished track record for failure, eventually channel his life experiences into a publishable work that will shake the manga industry to its very core, or will he continue to feel the cruel sting of rejection time and time again?
