Japanese: おとん
English: Oton (Or, Father)
Author: 猿渡哲也 Saruwatari Tetsuya
Amazon JP: Volume 1


Oton is a volume of shorts by Saruwatari Tetsuya that tell the story of Miyazawa Seiko, the father of the main character Kiichi in Tough. There are four short stories in here and the first three are about Miyazawa Seiko. The fourth is about Kiryu, another character from Tough. Manliness and badassery abound, be prepared for some good old face-punching and references to actual events in the real world in a way that only Saruwatari Tetsuya can deliver.
