Three Wayward Friends on a School Trip

Three boys who have just graduated from elementary school but missed going on their school trip, decide to go on a trip of their own.
Tenma transferred schools in the middle of grade six and has few friends. Shu, who is nicknamed “Prince” for his winning smile, and Fuchi, a short boy who is often absent from school, invite Tenma to go on a trip to see Fuchi’s divorced father before they start junior high school.
On the day of their departure, Tenma learns that Fuchi’s father has given Fuchi a task to complete: He must ask ten strangers to sign Fuchi’s graduation album and take a photo with them but still reach the meeting place on time. Fuchi manages to get the station master and a high school girl to sign his album, but they are interrupted by a pervert. When this man tries to take them into a public washroom, Fuchi and his friends drive him off. The trio manage to collect signatures from another seven people, including a mother and child and another group of boys. Fuchi asks his father to be the tenth person to sign his album, but his father refuses, saying that he does not meet the criterion of being a stranger. He taunts Fuchi for failing to complete the task. Tenma and Shu tearfully protest on behalf of their friend, and the trio returns home together.
Written from Tenma’s perspective, the eventful journey and Tenma’s process of getting to know Shu and Fuchi are conveyed with a light and humorous touch, and Tenma’s frustration with the irrationality of grownups comes across graphically. (Doi)
