Hello to you, whom I meeting for the first time and you whom I meet again. I'm Aloha Zachou.
To those who took this book in their hands, O-san in charge of editing, A-san the vice-editor in charge as well as many others of you who have read my work that was previously published on the net – I am really grateful to you all. Currently OSO series has a side story called Silver Muse running in the Dragon Magazine, as well as a comicalization drawn by Hani Kuraun which is published in Dragon Age. In the manga you can watch Yun's and others' cute activities, in the side story you can read about Myu's cute and cool activities you won't see in the main volume. Please pick those up, by all means.
I thought of making "Film" the topic this time.
Personally, I'm not the type to go to the cinema, I mostly partake in watching films from BDs my father borrows indiscriminately. And mostly, they are either Hollywood disaster film or American comic hero ones.
When I was a kid I kept going "wow, amazing!" when I was watching film, but recently I've started paying attention to scene cut timings, use of CG technology, easy to understand dialogues and flags , and so on. I sometimes start thinking whether its an occupational disease.
And when I see disaster films' protagonist's co-workers, colleagues——intuitively I feel that "This guy will definitely have an unfortunate encounter". And that exactly happens in the film, either he's assaulted by a monster, falls into trouble, or suffers a fatal wound in order to let protagonist escape. Though in some cases, they would survive.
In such case the healing thought of "Oh, the character who acts as series' conscience has survived" can be an unusual way to enjoy the film.
I'm thinking of borrowing another BD to watch the next time I feel like it.
Please take care of me, Aloha Zachou, from now on as well.
In the end, I would like to once again thank you who have taken this book in your hands.
I'm looking forward to the day I will see you again.
April 2016, Aloha Zachou
