Masahiko Katsuse’s third full-length novel will be released in June 2024, depicting youth in their 20s in “Young People at Dawn” (2020, published by Gentosha) and passionate love in “Night Traveling Himitsu” (2021, published by Futabasha).

The title of Masahiko Katsuse’s first full-length novel in three years since “Yakou Himitsu” is “Blue Marriage.” This work, which was completed after repeated revisions, centers on two men and depicts the problems and conflicts that occur in modern times, such as marriage, divorce, work, couples, and harassment. Mamoru Amemiya, a company employee in his late 20s whose life accelerates after asking, “Would you like to get married?” and Tsuyoshi Hijikata, a man in his 50s whose wife he has been with for many years wants a divorce. The story develops in an unexpected direction as two men of different
generations and values ​​intersect due to suspicions of internal harassment.
When the publication was decided, we received a recommendation comment from actor Eita Nagayama, who was one of the first to see this work. * Eita Nagayama (actor) *
I was supposed to be happy when I grew up.
I’m just breathing and living,
Even though I’m just next to people,
people are hurting people
I want to live a little easier.
Please forgive me.

In addition, it has been decided that the cover will use a photo of nilikoko, who is popular on Instagram, X, TikTok, etc., and this is the first time that it has been used for the binding of a novel.
