Shige Releases "Pink & Grey", Increases Publication


"In tv they showed only the left side where he was. They omitted my part, everything was cut off into a composition focused on his face.

In that moment I felt clearly, and for the first time, that our relationship didn't exist anymore. That broadcasted reality completely disappointed me"

Shige's Message on Day of Release

It has come at last.
I wrote it one year ago and finally everybody will be able to hold it in their hands, I still haven't realized it well.
I want to go to bookstores and see it with my eyes but I have no idea of how I should behave.
I'm so happy that I'm afraid I'll end up to say "Thank you so much!" to everyone who's buying it. Many from the staff already bought it, they saw the books with their covers in the libraries and they told me "Your book is all lined up in the bookstores!", I feel so deeply thankful. I'm moved.

We've kept saying that it's a shocking book and now it's the time you can judge by yourself...damn, maybe you'll see it was a lie (lol). The time has come. I wrote it keeping all the responsabilities on myself so after all, I will be happy in anyway you'll read it. The shy ones could buy the e-book too.

By the cover it seems a book that you can end reading quickly, if you like try reading it 2-3 times, I'll be happy if it will move you deeply.
I pray for "Pink to Gray" to be bought by many people.

Pink & Grey Re-print

Rough translation:

The first edition of publication was at 50,000 copies. However, due to demand, they decided to re-print 10,000 copies.

(this is also sold in electronic format/ e-book)

I already bought the ebook version of his book and I'm waiting for my physical book to be shipped!
My Japanese sucks so I'm struggling with reading through it but I'm trying my best to get through the first three chapters!
I can't wait to finish it as a whole!

Good to see that his book is doing well. Ordered a copy for myself as well. It's time to get my lazy ass to read a book in Japanese. :p

Ugh, I was literally just at the bookstore and I forgot to look for this. Sorry, Shige! Maybe I'll order it instead.
