Synopsis


Konigiri-kun is a small rice ball (onigiri) who lives in a food case. His head is sesame seed and black dried seaweed is his trademark. One morning, realising that his sesame seed was about to disappear, he went shopping with his pet Brorog. In front of his house, many different stores were open. While enjoying looking round all the stores, distracted by many other things, he forgot what he had gone out to buy. Will he correctly buy sesame seeds? When enthralled by fashionable and new things, and it seems like you are about to lose sight of yourself, stop and think a little. Consider what it is that can help you regain control of yourself. You will definitely find it very close to you.
