I’m a dabbler in many languages. In this story I dabble in Japanese. This chapter would be called Kishoutenketsu in Japanese. Satoru’s Boukenshousetsu is a story about a young man who is writing an Adventure Story. I stumbled across this term and found it fascinating to start looking into another culture’s story forms. As I said, I’m a dabbler, so there may well be better ways to say these terms in Japanese. However, this story happens in some future where space travel is common place and so are parallel dimensions. So this may be the way these things are said in the Japanese of that time and planet.
While Satoru is writing his boukenshousetsu, another story is weaving its way through his life, doing bizarre things to his body. Satoru tries to keep his kibyou (strange disease) hidden from his girlfriend Julie. Meanwhile Satoru’s best friend David is trying to find a way for Satoru to finally be free of his curse.

How did I find myself alone in a ship with the one person who frustrates me the most? Why does Sarah have to be so different? Why do I keep hearing her name in my head? And why did I ever agree to take her to the middle of nowhere and wait to be paid for her trip until I got there? This makes absolutely no sense to me. And yet here I am. The worst part is we'll have to act like we're married for part of the trip. And I can tell you, neither of us is looking forward to that!
