My expertise, literature, is a discipline that can tend to seem gloomy and annoying. That appearance isn't far from the truth. It's true that literary research is gloomy and annoying, since it requires considerable patience. However, it requires the same patience that any other discipline does. In that sense, learning can be said to be gloomy and annoying.

Literary research doesn't just deal with ultraconservative literary works. Comic books, plays, movies, TV dramas—even paintings, music, dance and photos: These are all subjects. Having a broad perspective on all such ways of expression is extremely important. In life, are we constantly expressing ourselves? I suppose that living itself is a way of expression. Literary research can be described as the study of how humans express themselves.

Research on various ways of expression is still to come. Occasionally, brave ideas greatly advance research. Light, supple ideas like those of an infant are extremely valuable.
