The first full-color work from SALLY, an International Manga Award Silver Award winner. An ordinary day, a packed commuter train – and an usual friendship blooms between a securities trader heading for his first day at a new job and an exhausted research student heading to his part-time job. Fate, it turns out, strikes in strange ways on ordinary days.
Rush hour of an ordinary working day, and Taipei’s Bannan line is packed with commuters and silent but for the rhythmic sounds of the train. Two men, strangers to each other, find themselves shoulder to shoulder.
Six months after being suddenly laid off, Li Ting-Yu has finally found new work and is praying all will go smoothly. His hopes are dashed when he steps on the foot of the aggressive looking man next to him.
Chen Yu-Chen, a young research student funding his studies with a part-time IT job, takes the train from Fuzhong to Zhongxiao Dunhua every day. Short on sleep as usual, this particular day the nervous-looking man next to him manages to step on his foot. I’ll just mess with him a little, Chen thinks.
And from that accidental meeting, an usual friendship develops. Fate, it turns out, strikes in strange ways on ordinary days.
