Mr. Hayashi said, “It was thanks to this weekly Bunshun series essay that many people came to know my name. There were times when it was hard because I didn’t have any essay material, but I’m happy that I was able to continue it for 37 years. I would like to express my gratitude to all the readers who supported me and the editorial department for their support. I’d like to take care of my health and continue the series for another 20 years or so.”
