Lyrics: hotaru, Composition/Arrangement: eba
A soothing young man who descended upon us like an angel. He can often be seen holding a cat-shaped cushion, and his manner of speaking is equally gentle and airy. He appears to be a student, but it’s unclear how he usually spends his time. With his sweet voice, he engages in conversations that seem to cleanse the listener’s soul.
