This collection is an amalgamation of work reflecting Hiroki Endo's philosophy and his outstanding ability to draw and to tell stories.
"The Crows, the Girl, and the Yakuza"(カラスと少女とヤクザ)
A long, heavily philosophical piece about a homeless girl who lives among the crows in an empty warehouse and a wounded yakuza who hides from his enemies with her (86 pages long)

This short story is about a girl who is into Jungian psychology, and she regrets the loss of her mother and elder sister as well as her invalid grandfather.
"For Those of Us Who Don't Believe in God" (神様なんて信じていない僕らのために)
A story about a group of college students putting on a play about a serial murderer in prison who holds a discussion with the sister of one of his victims.
