I don't know why it is that it sometimes takes the hardest route possible, perhaps one you may never have even asked for, to really learn something and have it sink in.
But if there is one thing I have learned, it is simply that you have to fight for what you love and care about and make sure you have no regrets. And I didn't.
There is so much emotional baggage associated with this sketch, and with all of the above revelations, I have finally been able to bring myself to finish it and let it all go.
It's of 名無し(Nanashi), a swordsman, and his friend こうたろう(Kotarou), who is accompanied by his Shiba inu. All of them are from a very special movie called Sword of the Stranger (ストレンヂャー)。
I finally freaking finished it.
And now, finally, it's time for a clean slate.
