From the Depths of an Emotionless Heart

Mika, a high school student, lost most of his emotions due to a brain tumor he had in his childhood.

After losing one of the most important things in his life, he stopped going to school and set himself a single goal: to earn a lot of money so that he could regain his emotions in the future with the power of wealth.

Unaware of how his life would change, he continued to live in this seemingly meaningless existence.

However, everything changed when a random person entered his life. Little did Mika know that this encounter would be unlike anything he had ever experienced before. The person who came into his life would bring something different, something beyond his sole purpose.

A few notes for my dear readers:

This was my first work, and while writing this light novel, I felt that each chapter brought further development. It was indeed a challenge to research and write about such a subject in my debut work. It was especially difficult to anticipate the thought process and behavior of someone who lacks emotions. I hope I've managed to convey this realistically and accurately.

There are certain topics and experiences of other characters, as well as side stories, that are not included. Therefore, some parts may be difficult to understand or seem simple. The reason for this is that the story continues through Mika.

I hope you enjoy reading it. Please don't forget to tell me what you think!
