It's been a while since we've heard from Hiroshi, and now he's back in the drawing room with his mom. He's not happy to see his mom, and he wants to know if she's feeling better. He asks her if she wants to go back into the world of manga, and she says she does, but that she'd rather not do it as a hobby. She's worried that if she does go back to drawing, she won't be able to keep up with the rest of the artists in the world. She tells him she'll have to talk to her mom next time, and Hiroshi says he'll talk to his mom on the phone. He tells his mom that she inherited her father's "weird habits" from him, like abandoning things when he gets upset. He also tells her that getting divorced was the best thing for her, because it forced her and her father to stay together. He doesn't think it's fair that they raised her so poorly, but he thinks it was the right thing to do.
