It was a lazy Sunday afternoon. I'd just helped myself to lunch at my girlfriend's folks' house. I was just about to head home when my girlfriend's sister held out the first volume of Yawara, recommending that I give it a try.

Ok I'm the first to admit I'm not the biggest fan of romantic comedy or the sports genre for that matter (having thought that that was what Yawara is all about at the time). I'd rather put out a cigarette on my eyeball than have to sit through an episode of Sex and the City. I'd rather inject sewrage shit into my arm than read more
