little ojisan (Little Grandpa)

ASANO Noi

Animated TV series [Japan]

One day, I picked up a little ojisan (old man)… As a university student living alone, “I” had no success with job-hunting, and was close to becoming a hikikomori (a recluse). It was one such day that, on the way home from a convenience store, I found the “little ojisan”…This work depicts the cherished days spent with a 6.8 cm-tall, slightly gloomy, surprisingly selfcentered, enigmatic ojisan who somehow draws sympathy.
