Description
Hayao is living, just living, and seeing a singer who sings in a bar. His friends around him are getting along well, or are they? Meanwhile, two dwarfs in his head are building a wall that keeps collapsing right when they are about to finish it. All of this goes on while Hayao drinks bitter black coffee every morning in his life.

It's very figurative, so the reader should pay attention to any allusions and possible symbols.

It's a fun little story. I liked the wall metaphor. Whether it's for his romantic relationships or expectations. He keeps building them up only to have it crushed. Once he understands what he wants, he realizes that the way he was living his life before was meaningless. So, he goes out to find what does.

It may be a beautiful allegory or poetic symbolism, but it is just too damn choppy and 'tries too hard.' It comes off to me like a university student trying to impress their professor with how 'smart' they are.

The art is clear and bold, but I don't like the 'Western' feel to it.
