We’ve come to the final bento of your high-school life. Thank you for eating each and every one. Through these bentos we were able to communicate more. I don’t know when I’ll have the opportunity to make a bento for you again, so I hope you really enjoy this one. Your high school life was lots of fun, wasn’t it? There’s only a little time left, so enjoy it with your friends.

Thank you. From Mom.”
