Does life begin after graduation? - Hidarikiki no Eren (2019) Episode 4

Recalling his past, Koichi remembers when he, Eren, and Sayuri graduated high school in episode four of Hidarikiki no Eren (左ききのエレン) / Eren the Southpaw. Eren is thinking if he should take up art in college. Sayuri just wants to be with him all throughout. Eren is still unsure of the path she’s going to take but she’s content as long as she keeps doing art. The art school director gave them some valuable advice.


“Nobody knows when their own life begins. It begins when you gain something, but sometimes it also begins when you discard something.”

“Suffer as much as possible. Thoroughly drown in despair until the day your life begins.”


The last line didn’t sound encouraging at all, but it can be interpreted in a different light: we all go through different kinds of hardships before we reach our success point. Until then, we can choose to hold on to our dreams or to let go. If we truly don’t want to give up, we should be ready to face obstacles that life throws our way.
