The Box Is Not Your Friend, Maru

You love the box, Maru. This we all know. You draw comfort from its cardboard embrace as it cradles you in solitude. But the box does not love you, Maru.

The box is a trickster, impish and cruel. It extends its hand in support, saying trust me, I wish only to help you. But the box is full of lies and betrayal.

おっと失敗!Oops fail!

Yet despite its petty humiliations, its endless stream of deceits, you return to its waiting arms again and again. All is forgiven. There is peace. Until next time…

よっこいせっと。あー落ち着く。 It settles down here.

Codependent relationships are so sad to watch, Andrew Y.

    I think the first box does love him and just wanted to give him a hug.

    He looks so sad in that last one. 🙁

      It is IMPOSSIBLE to not love Maru!

    I love that Hana just ignores Maru’s predicament, I thinks she’s pretty much immune to his antics by now.

      You can almost hear her thinking “Here we go again” as she walks on by.
