    "Shura is supposed to fight and fight from beginning to end. A world where suffering and anger are constant, but it is not a place like hell, but suffering is a big place where it comes to itself.

    "From the point of being alive with almost instinct and being used, it is considered a world where there is little salvation without being able to obtain the teachings of Buddha on its own. I thought of this situation as a life managed by others in prison.

    Life to be causative."

    "Gakimichi is the world where kid lives. When a demon tries to put food in his mouth, it becomes a fire and he suffers from hunger and thirst. There is an example that became a demon because he did not consider others.

    A polar bear starved to death due to a decrease in drift ice due to global warming.

    It was starvation due to global warming."

    "The human road is a world of great suffering that is troubled, but it is said that not only will suffering continue, but there will also be fun. A work that compares this situation to a difficult voyage.

    It likened life to a voyage."
