Umi: Hello everyone, this is Umino.
Thank you so much for picking up this book.
I finally made it to 3-Gatsu no Lion volume 12.
---You may be wondering why I'm curled up into a ball floating through space like this...
Do you all remember this?
In the afterward for volume 9, I made a pose like this.
Handwritten; *I couldn't sleep with my legs pointed laid out, there were too many directions to point them, so I eventually ended up in this position....
Umi: There's been quite some time that's passed since then.
I've had tons of people supporting me.
And the number of kind people who I certainly cannot point my legs at while I sleep has increased...
So now I'm just like this...
curled up in a ball, spending my days rotating.
so filled with feelings of appreciation!!

Umi: Speaking of my recent situation...
I've taken a liking to spinning Bun-chan around on my work chair.
SFX: GURU GURU GURU (SPINNING)
Umi: And spinning around being frustrated about things other people would find to be amazingly insignificant,
SFX: JITA JITA JITA BATA BATA BATA (FLAILING)
Umi: And because I don't go out for walks much anymore,
really only going out to buy drawing supplies, I've been worried about the muscle pain on my theighs and arms.
Handwritten: Shopping for honestly just like 2 hours...
SF:X JIRI JIRI...
Umi: Wonderful things seem to be falling onto me one after another like shooting stars.
I'm so, so happy I can barely contain it
but when shooting stars actually slam into the earth right near your body
your instincts react with something close to 'fear'.
My emergency alarms malfunction
and I end up going through some really lame days.
In order to catch all this enormous happiness,
I need a container that matches the size of that happiness.
In other words,
I'm spending my days trying to come to terms with it all.
---But I won't give up, I'll keep eagerly constructing an 'enormous container'.
And if you'll keep watching over me in the future, there's really no greater happiness for me.
