They Say Kirishima's Quitting
His Club Activities
Paperback by Shueisha Inc.


Not in Romeo and Juliet, some ask like this, what is the youth? The wave of time is always pushing us and we used to pass thru our green time for a blink. Namely, the meaning of youth cannot be unrelated to a sense of the time. Asai Ryo has described various types of the 2000s youth in his virgin novel; They Say Kirishima's Quitting His Club Activities.

Asai Ryo was born in 1989, and made his debut when he was just a college student. He did not decide to devote himself full-time to the author, and entered a sales job. He still works in sales and keeps releasing his novels as a side job. Don’t look down upon him as only a nameless part-time writer. His novel; Nanimono has got Naoki Prize in the later half of 2012.

In college, he published They Say Kirishima's Quitting His Club Activities in 2009 and next year Sueisha Inc. published it in paperback.

Kirishima has belonged to volley ball club activities as a captain and never appears in the stories. The tales describe some characters somehow change a little after hearing Kirishima is quitting his club activities and probably it is an omnibus of stories about some youths.

So what does it show us? The book tells us we can no longer share the same youth with the same age. Every young character has each world and is separated completely. We must no more bind letters of their minds into a bundle.

Asai Ryo had belonged to a volley ball club in high school. Based on his true experiences, They Say Kirishima's Quitting His Club Activities vividly describes about real things on the many youths that had spent their salad days in 2000s. Meanwhile, it also appeals to the parents that have children of teenage.
