A Can of Happiness


Story 1: A Can of Happiness
Emi wins the special prize in a raffle, which turns out to be a can that supposedly holds happiness. There's even a weird little man who starts following her around, claiming he's the "god of the can" and trying to give her advice. But all she wants is for her relationship with her boyfriend to feel less like a one-sided crush. Will this can really help her be happy?

I've been working with Occasional Amateur Scanlations to translate some older anthologies by Kawahara Kazune (author of Sensei! and High School Debut). This is the first story in an anthology by the same name. The other four stories in the anthology will follow whenever we get them done.
