I was quite nervous about making a mistake and deviating from the original manga. I did my best but it's still difficult. In one scene my character talks at length about the subtle difference between a strike and a gutter in a bowling game. I had a hard time doing that scene. My interpretation is that he tells the anecdote because he feels apprehensive about telling everybody the truth. So he tells them this as a metaphor, it's the same thing he has told his homeless friends over and over again.
