Yamamoto is called to the office of Professor Anayama. The professor points out the anomalous fact that even though the role says he was present at every class, he’d never set eyes on the student before. He then announces that he has been appointed Yamamoto’s thesis advisor, and points out that, even though Yamamoto has a job arranged, he needs to pass the thesis to graduate. With the power relations thus defined, he strikes a deal with Yamamoto: join the sumo club, or you won’t graduate.

Note: To register for the movie screening, send an email to or call 020-2898510.
Deadline for registration is Friday, 28th March 2014 at 4:00pm. If you plan to attend the movie with a friend(s), please provide us with your friend’s name when you register for yourself.
