Editor-in-Chief Ishii's ``A Splendid Life of Extraneous Thoughts''

I want to do that, I want to do this. I want to enjoy life even more! Based on such greedy thoughts, we will deliver the daily life of editor-in-chief Ishii, who enjoys life full of distractions. This time's theme is "Mont Blanc". We visited him for a dinner commemorating his unexpected collaboration with the popular comic ``NARUTO.''

Well, I was surprised. Montblanc has announced a collaboration with NARUTO. I had heard that anime was extremely popular in Europe, but since it is not a fashion house, I had no idea what it would be like... Before that, what about Naruto? For those of you who are interested, let me give you a brief explanation. This is an adventure story about a young ninja, Naruto Uzumaki, who aims to become the title of the strongest ninja, ``Hokage.'' It is a monster content that has sold 250 million copies in 46 countries around the world to date. The products that caught my attention were tote bags, leather accessories, iPhone covers, fountain pens, ink bottles, and other serious collaborations.

The venue for the dinner was Happoen in Shirokanedai, Tokyo. The strolling Japanese garden is truly the world of Naruto! There were many guests and influencers from overseas who attended this dinner, and they all seemed to be in awe, saying, "Beautiful!" Please check below if you are interested in this collection.



On this day, I was able to meet fashion model Morihoshi-chan for the first time in a while, and we renewed our old friendship. I'm very happy to see that my career is expanding more and more. Snapshot to commemorate.
