The New Komeito Party (NKP or just "Kōmeitō" in Japanese) is a Japanese center to center-left political party, was formed in 1998 through the merger of the Kōmeitō party and the New Peace Party. Kōmeitō's constituency consists almost entirely of members of the religious organization Sōka Gakkai. Sōka Gakkai's flag is a tricolor with blue, yellow, and red; thus, when Matoi sees these colors in the name "Kōmeitō", she is highlighting that the party appears to allow Soka Gakkai to circumvent Japan's constitutional separation of religion and state.

Until tomorrow

From Kumeta's blog

Preparation backfires 100% of the time. Try using a walking stick, and you end up getting stabbed by it. I trip on slip-prrof floors. I almost suffocated myself sleeping in padded headgear. I get a rash whenever I use bug spray. I makes total sense... since I'm nothing but a lowly bug. Why would a bug use bug spray? When I put mothballs in my closet, I end up not being able to wear anything. If my apartment was fumigated, I'd move out. What else could I do? After all, I'm just a lowly bug. I'm the lowest kind of bug there is. I'm a dung beetle. No matter what I do to prepare, it always backfires.
well fuck, thanks man
Man, the end is so good.
