(translated from the Japanese by Philip Gabriel)
The Cat With No Name
"I am a cat. As yet, I have no name. There's a famous cat in our country who once made this very statement.
I have no clue how great the cat was, but at least when it comes to having a name I got there first. Whether I like my name is another matter, since it glaringly doesn't fit my gender, me being male and all. I was given it about five years ago--around the time I came of age."
What do you think? Pass or read a bit more? I'm enjoying it so far.
