【TESEN-NOVEL Vol.17】 What is normal.


This is SHU, the management staff of Osaka Share House.


I work in a share house, and I’m writing a series of novels at my leisure.


“What kind of place is a share house? “What kind of life can I expect?


I’m writing this novel for those who are wondering.

It’s a fictionalized version of non-fiction.


Would you like to take a look at life in a share house with me?


I hope that the wonderful things that happen in a share house will reach as many people as possible.


I hope to bring a rich life to as many people as possible.



I follow the anomaly as people pour out of the gray building and are sucked into the tiny hole.
As usual, I wait three minutes for the mass of steel.
It arrives on time.
Hundreds of people get in and out of there.
Then they are carried somewhere.
If the urban asphalt were a skeleton, I wonder if we would be able to see the people who have gone underground.
I wonder if the underground space would become too big and the ground would not cave in.
Speaking of which, an American sharemate of mine was telling me that Japanese trains are amazing.
They arrive not even a minute late.
If a train is one minute late, an apology is immediately broadcast over the in-house announcements.
I thought this was normal, but maybe it is not normal for him.
I wonder if it is abnormal if you consider that a human being is moving a block of steel.
Something that I thought was “normal” is often made me realize that it is not “normal.
But sometimes I don’t know what “normal” is.


What is normal?
Normal is different from person to person.
What is a normal life?
When I come home, someone says, “Welcome home!
That’s not normal.
When I get sick, someone brings me food.
That’s not normal.
When I come down to the living room, food is ready.
That’s not normal.
My life is full of unusual things.
But I wonder how long this life will last.
I wonder if I will ever be able to return to a normal life after being surrounded by so many unusual things.
Will there ever come a day when I can live alone again?
I hope my unusual life will continue without aging.
I sound like a middle-schooler talking nonsense.
I’ll try to enjoy my unusual life a little more.
