Lesson 101 Why won't Kozo tell the truth?
Why won't Kozo tell the truth?
Sylphie: So, Kozo wants to become a rakugo-ka, but he cannot tell his parents about it.
Jukichi: I see.
Lex: Sylphie! That’s what I was going to find out! Don’t steal my job!
Sylphie: Sorry, RoboCorpus asked me.
RoboCorpus: But I don’t understand. Why won’t Kozo tell the truth?
Jukichi: Because his wish is not the same as his parents’. He doesn’t want to disappoint them.
Sylphie: Kozo is a very smart boy, but he’s not happy about his future, I guess.
Lex: Humans sometimes sacrifice themselves to make others happy. But in my opinion, that makes the situation even more complicated.
RoboCorpus: I wonder if there is any way to make both of them happy.
