(Note: Published in Ichiho Michi’s blog to celebrate additional printings of Long Hello in September 2017.)

“Apparently robots will be brought in to assist the hotel’s front desk operations. As you can see from the clip, it can move and avoid obstacles, and based on the map data loaded into its memory, it can navigate itself to individual guest rooms too and deliver items that may be requested… That’s quite incredible.”

“But the robot can only carry items that can fit inside its compartment, it seems.”

“The storage compartment is 22 centimeters tall, 26 centimeters wide, and 37 centimeters deep.”

“Oh, but that sounds like it won’t fit a video game system.”

“Video game system…? You mean the non-portable consoles?”

“Oh, yes.”

“Minagawa-san, do you normally play video games when you stay over at a hotel? Do hotels even provide video game systems for their guests to use?”

“Uh… Oh, it’s all right.”

“What is?”

“Great, let’s go to commercial!”

“Aaahhh, with the weekend, I kind of wasn’t thinking~”1


“Nacchan, are you mad? Are you mad at me?”

“Not really…”

“I’m sorry. I’m so sorry! I won’t say open my mouth like that anymore!”

“Whatever… It ain’t a big deal…”

“Forgive me! Come on, come on, oh, here! You can take a picture of me and tweet, ‘My boyfriend’s on the floor apologizing.’ Okay!?”

“That’s what I see.”


“…Are ya really sorry ’bout it?”

“I am.”

“How sorry?”

“As sorry as when I was in 5th grade, and I wanted to know why only all the girls were called to the gym this one time, and I kept asking until I made a girl cry? That much?”

“……I should tweet, ‘My boyfriend’s the worst.’”

“What? But I seriously didn’t know!!”

“I dun wanna forgive ya for a while.”
